A lot of you may be wondering how Bernard King cracks this list with the epic accolades and support he receives from Knick fans regularly. But what many forget is that King had five of his 14 years in the NBA cut short due to injuries which included a torn ACL in 1986 when he was at the peak of his powers in New York. A scoring beast, King managed to still have a few more good years playing for the Bullets after the Knicks released him, but he was still never himself and eventually was forced into retirement. We don't have to wonder what he could have done statistically had he played a full 14 seasons anymore. Bernard the King was inducted into the Hall of Fame earlier this year.
