Moments in the history of the New York Knicks. These two Hall of Famers are the best to put on this uniform, standing far ahead of their positional peers. Unfortunately, nothing else is too simple. A contributor of John Starks' caliber typically wouldn't be a 13th man. Ditto for Allan Houston and Bill Cartwright serving as end-of-bench players. And yet, tough omissions still exist. Kenny Sears, Dick Barnett, Bill Bradley, Anthony Mason, Mark Jackson, Dick McGuire, Walt Bellamy and others all deserve recognition, but none more so than Carl Braun. In fact, he made the All-Star team during each of his full campaigns there. He won two titles alongside some of the other legends populating this star-studded roster. He even continued to show off his defensive chops by making the All-Defensive First Team in every one of those five seasons.
The latter power forward retired in 1974 after spending the last 5.5 seasons of his career playing in Madison Square Garden, and it's not like he was operating at some low level.
