High Risers: A History of Tall Sock All-Stars

Earl Monroe

TEAMS: Baltimore Bullets; New York Knicks
CAREER:
1967–1980
COMPLEX SAYS:
The Pearl's phenomenal ball-handling made him one of the flashiest point guards in NBA history (peep the ankle-breakers), he also made four All-Star appearances and won a ring during his Hall of Fame career. Even more legendary than those accolades was his nickname on the Philly playgrounds he grew up on: "Jesus." #nuffsaid
