Basketball Hall of Fame
King was slowed by a serious knee injury in 1990. But he averaged 22.5 points in his 15-year career with five teams that ended in 1993. Now, he’s a Hall of Famer.
The White House says North Korea’s government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on “celebrity sporting events” to entertain the country’s elite.
King played with the Nets from 1977-1979 and with the Knicks from 1982-1987. He finished his career with New Jersey in 1993. The Brooklyn native was a four-time NBA All-Star and the 1985 NBA scoring champion.
The Knicks superstar, who called Bernard King a “no-brainer” for the Hall of Fame during All-Star weekend, doesn’t get why his idol has been snubbed again and again.
It appears Bernard King will have to wait yet another year for his chance at Hall of Fame immortality.
Tomorrow at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, the MAAC Coach of the Year will be named. I’ll be up there co-hosting the event – and here are my thoughts about the award this year.
