People forget that down to its core, NY - especially Manhattan - is a basketball town. I wouldn't argue that the Knicks could ever eclipse the Yankees, but when they are good (like back in the 90's and all the way back to the 70's), they're the 2nd most popular team in the city.
Basically, the more successful the team, the more media attention it gets. The last time the Rangers won a cup the NHL went directly into a lockout and it absolutely KILLED the NYR buzz in the city.
