I am a native New Yorker. I played for the Knicks for five seasons. I believe I am one of the best-loved Knicks of all. I came off the bench and rarely started a game. During my time we never went to the playoffs. I averaged seven points and three rebounds per game. I never wanted to leave the Big Apple and wish I could have stayed but I was not re-signed.
I am a former NBA Rookie of the Year but not with the Knicks. I really wanted to play in New York and was fired up to come to MSG. I played with some of the most exciting players in the league. I regret injuries prohibited me from contributing more to my team. With NYK, I averaged 17 points and seven rebounds per game during the regular season. During my time as a Knicks player, we went to the playoffs three times where I averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game.
Hint: I am the oldest Knicks player in this article. I am a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. I was drafted eighth in the second round (17th overall). I am also a native New Yorker. I went to the playoffs once with the New York Knicks, but I was a six-time All-Star. In my career, I averaged 17 points, 15 rebounds and five assists per game. All in all, not bad for a kid from the Bronx.
