Knicks fans have amazed and impressed people around the NBA and beyond this season with their dedication in filling the Garden despite the home team's less-than-stellar won-loss record.

Those who showed up Tuesday were rewarded with an upset of the defending champion Spurs. Those who show up Thursday to watch the Knicks (14-53) host the lowly Timberwolves (14-52) will receive a Larry Johnson bobblehead.

The tchotchke, which features LJ in his famous L-shaped arm pose, is part of a "Throwback Thursday" series during the season sponsored by Major Energy.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Knicks were averaging 19,812 fans per home game, fourth best in the NBA behind the Bulls, Cavaliers and Mavericks.
