Before Madison Square Garden hosted televised train wrecks on a weekly basis, 2x NBA All Star Larry Johnson helped lead the Knicks to the 1999 NBA Finals. His 4-point play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals is one of the greatest moments in NBA playoff history and helped cement LJ's place #knickstape lore forever. Now, with the team on a seemingly concerted effort to redefine rock bottom (at time of print, the Knicks are 5-35), Johnson is frustrated.
In anticipation of this week's Knicks game in London, Delta Air Lines, the official airline of the New York Knicks and a partner of the NBA Global Games London 2015, hosted the ‘Free Throw to Heathrow’ pop-a-shot event where they rewarded one fan with a trip for two to London to see the Knicks and Bucks play at O2 Arena on Thursday. Complex News had the opportunity to speak with Johnson at the event. Here's LJ on the state of the Knicks, his glory days with the Charlotte Hornets, and that time he played Grandmama on "Family Matters." Check it out.
