New York Knicks: 25 Greatest Players of All-Time

13 of 27

15. Harry Gallatin

Harry Gallatin was one of the true stars of the 1950s. He made seven All-Star Game appearances and led the New York Knicks to a significant measure of postseason success.

Gallatin’s overall numbers may not blow contemporary fans away, but he’s still No. 4 on the Knicks’ all-time rebounding list.

From 1951 to 1953, Gallatin led New York to three consecutive NBA Finals appearances. He failed to win a ring, but that string of consistent contention has been since unmatched by Knicks teams or players.

That alone puts him on this list.

Perhaps most significantly, Gallatin set an NBA record by playing in 682 consecutive games. 621 were as a member of the Knicks, which is a powerful claim to fame.

Tragically, Gallatin recently passed away. As his peers and fans have echoed, he will be dearly missed.
