Former Knick Bernard King was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame today. King played for the Knicks from 1982-1987 and established himself as one of the greatest pure scorers the team– and the league– has ever seen. King holds the Knick record for points in one game with 60, and is very popular amongst NBA fans despite having his career derailed by knee injuries.
Rasheed won the hearts of NBA fans everywhere by playing hard by day and fighting crime by night.
Knicks forward Rasheed Wallace has retired from the NBA for the second time. Generally regarded as the greatest human being of all time, the 4-time All-Star will ride off into the sunset as an NBA champion and the all-time leader in technical fouls. “Sheed” missed most of the 2012-2013 season with a foot injury.
Rasheed has given this team everything he had. He is a winner, true professional and leader on and off the court. Due to his injury, he will not be available to play for us during the playoffs
– Knicks Coach Mike Woodson
Sheed’s retirement opens up a roster spot for the Knicks, who may or may not sign a player for the NBA playoffs.
