10. Allan Houston
Overpaid or otherwise, Allan Houston is one of the greatest players in New York Knicks history. He was an excellent shooter who played a major role on historically significant Knicks teams.
It’s easy to forget that Houston played more postseason minutes than any player during New York’s run to the 1999 NBA Finals.
Houston helped lead the Knicks to their most recent NBA Finals appearance, and that alone earns him a high ranking. He was also the star of the show in 1999-2000, when New York returned to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Houston led that team with 19.7 points per game on 48.3 percent shooting from the field and a mark of 43.6 percent from beyond the arc.
Overall, Houston provided a consistent and efficient scoring punch throughout his Knicks career. He may not have lived up to his contract, and injuries made him un-tradable, but Houston was a Knicks great when healthy.
Once again: overpaid or otherwise, Houston is one of the greatest players in New York Knicks history.
