My personal favorite is Hall of Famer Bernard King who carried a very poor Knick team on his shoulders. With The fastest release in the NBA, the 6'7" small forward was vertuely unstopable. He scored back-to-back 50-point games against the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks.
Trying to carry the Knicks, he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and was one of the first players to return to being an all star two years later by adjusting his game to his diminished physical ability.
For his career, he averaged 22.5 PPG, 6 RPG, 3 APG and scored almost 20,000 points!
Honors: All-NBA First Team (1984, '85); All-NBA Second Team (1982); All-NBA Third Team (1991); NBA Comeback Player of the Year (1981); All-Rookie team (1978); Four-time All-Star (1982, '84, '85, '91).
But perhaps the best Knick of all time is Walt "Clyde" Frasier. A major part of both Knick championships in 1970 and 1973, after an injured Willis Reed hobbled to score the teams first four points and was too lame to do much more, Clyde carried the Kicks to Victory in that final game by scoring 35 points and dishing out 19 assists in the 1970 championship game vs. the Lakers. He averaged 18.9 PPG and 6.1 APG over his career, was a four-time all-NBA and a member of the Hall of Fame
