3. Walt Bellamy
Walt Bellamy also spent three seasons with the Knicks, but his statistical numbers were amazing enough to earn him a spot in the top 5. Before his stint with the Knicks, Bellamy was shocking the world with his tenacity on the boards and his ability to score the ball. In his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls, Bellamy recorded an amazing 69 consecutive double-doubles.
With the Knicks, Bellamy averaged 19.0 points per game, 12.9 rebounds per game and he helped the team make multiple playoff runs during his time. Although the Knicks eventually traded Bellamy for future hall-of-famer Dave DeBusschere, the team was grateful for his performances and services. The Knicks were a struggling team before the acquisition of Walt Bellamy, and he was one of the main reasons why the franchise was turned around in the 1970s.
