4. Larry Johnson
Larry Johnson was originally drafted by the Charlotte Hornets, but he was traded to the Knicks in the summer of 1996. Johnson spent the last five seasons of his career with the Knicks and he was a key contributor to the last Knicks team to make it to the NBA Finals.
Johnson will be remembered for one moment, and one moment only. During Game 3 of 1999 Eastern Conference Finals versus the Indiana Pacers, the Knicks found themselves down by three points with 11 seconds left in the game. Just when it seemed as though the Knicks would fall to their arch rivals, Larry Johnson was fouled on a three point shot and still managed to hit the three. Once Johnson hit his one free-throw, he completed the four-point play and gave the Knicks the win.
As a Knickerbocker, Larry Johnson averaged 12.2 ppg, 2.2 apg and 4.3 rpg.
