In his prime (1984-85 with the Knicks, before the knee injury) King was harder to stop than a young Michael Jordan. After the knee injury, King was never the same and Jordan had ascended to the top in his absence.

Hint: The WBB player went to high school in same NYC borough as her mom
Bonus hint: Mom was college roommate with player’s coach

Sheesh, considering Ros is an analyst and sideline reported for various NBA television programs, I’m surprised Phogge hasn’t run into her professionally.

BC

We have a winner! Yes, RG-W. For those who care, Ernie Grunfeld and Pat Gold both attended Russell Sage JHS in Forest Hills, Queens (as I did). My gym teacher used to brag about how he taught Ernie all he needed to know to become all-American.
