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.
Bernard King is already up in Massachusetts preparing for Sunday, when he will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. So he called in from his hotel room this morning to talk with Boomer and Craig about the momentous occasion…
Craig spoke glowingly about his boyhood idol, revealed that Earl ‘The Pearl’ Monroe will be handling the induction speech, and shared that Bernard lost the keepsake picture of his two duck friends, Aldo and Florence, who helped him get through knee rehab many, many years ago…
Knicks legend Bernard King stops by the Allstate Insurance Studio for the first time a a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Knicks great Bernard King is feeling fantastic. Getting tabbed as a Hall of Famer will do that to you.
Snubbed no longer! The Knicks great will be immortalized as a member of the 2013 class in September.
King was only an All-Star four times. He didn’t score 20,000 points, won just one scoring title, never won league MVP and doesn’t have a championship ring. He’s not a Hall of Famer, and it kills me to say that.
In a weekend filled with the NBA’s greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about.
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 aren’t even the best team in NYC. That handle belongs to a squad in Brooklyn.
Some Knicks fans might be wondering: Who the heck is this guy?
In addition to the state of the current Knicks, Bernard also talked about beating Boomer down in a game of HORSE.
Whenever Bernard King is scheduled to pay a visit, Craig gets understandably excited.
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.
