Best: New York Knicks — Walt Frazier
Patrick Ewing beats out Frazier in longevity and career numbers, but Walt Frazier is the more beloved Knick thanks to the two NBA championship he brought to New York in the 70s.
Frazier scored 19 points a game over a decade with the Knickerbockers, and he played in seven All Star Games and was named to the All Defense team seven times, too.
Today Clyde is the iconic voice of the Knicks and continues to be beloved for his style and his catchphrases.
Worst: New York Knicks — Jerome James
The Knicks were by far the most difficult choice on the list. Allan Houston signed a contract so bad the league created a rule allowing teams to get out of a terrible deal and named it after him. Charles Smith missed 800 straight shots at the rim to cost the Knicks their one shot to topple Michael Jordan. Eddy Curry was fat. Frederic Weis got dunked into oblivion. Stephon Marbury ate Vaseline. Jared Jeffries and Dontae Jones and Renaldo Balkman were among the many draft busts.
Jerome James is here to represent the entirety of the James Dolan and Isiah Thomas era. Thomas signed James to a horrifying $30 million deal to play only 90 games in four years for the Knicks before being salary dumped. It was one of the worst contracts in NBA history and makes James the perfect placeholder for this disaster of a franchise.
