Oh, Grandmama! Knick fans vividly remember Larry Johnson for his contributions on the court and undoubtedly never being the same guy he was for the Hornets after his back injuries. During his first few years, he was a force at the power forward, averaging 20 PPG and 10 RPG. When his back went, LJ was able to successfully alter his game to be more of a perimeter player and still help his team. He retired after only 10 seasons because of the chronic back problems which possibly cost him a trip to the Hall.
