Larry Johnson was the 1st overall selection by the Charlotte Hornets on the 1991 NBA Draft after a stellar collegiate career at UNLV. He played in Charlotte until 1996 when he was traded the the New York Knicks.
He joined Boomer & Craig in the Allstate Studio this morning to talk about the old days with the Knicks and, of course, his famous “4-Point Play” that by the way, Al “Hughes” Dukes knew nothing about it.
Johnson talked about this current version of the Knicks, led by Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, and what he sees this team turning into.
Craig brought up old wounds and asked the man they call “Grandmama” about losing to Duke in the 1991 Final Four after steamrolling the Blue Devils the year before. Johnson talked openly about the defeat, admitting that he choked in the closing seconds.
Johnson did take issue with Craig for calling out Stoudemire for missing time in the playoffs due to back problems and he cleared the air regarding his former teammate Charles Oakley and an altercation he got into in Vegas back in May of 2010.
In the end everyone was on good terms and Johnson agreed to be part of the B&C Celebrity Softball Team that will take on the Yankees Old-Timers on June 27th at the Stadium…
