John Starks and the New York Knicks go together like butter and jelly. Starks is one of the most well-known Knickerbockers in the franchise’s storied history, playing for them from 1990-1998. John Starks had to overcome plenty of adversity before getting to the big time though. He bagged groceries year after year before playing ball at some community colleges and finally finding a home at Oklahoma State University. Starks wandered around for a couple years after not being drafted and even spending some time in the CBA. When he finally locked on with the Knicks though, he made it last.
John Starks became the starting shooting guard for the Knicks and helped run the team on the court as one of its leaders. He helped lead the team to the 1994 finals where the Knicks lost in seven games to the Houston Rockets. That series helped Starks make a name for himself on the grand scheme of things, much like his 1992 Dunk Contest performance did. Along with those two shining moments, Starks is mostly remembered for a 1993 playoff game against the Chicago Bulls where he dunked over Horace Grant and Michael Jordan.
John Starks’ career ended without an NBA Championship, but he still lives as a major fan favorite in the hearts of Knicks’ faithful everywhere. Starks won the Sixth Man of the Year Award in 1997 while mentoring Allan Houston and he is the Knicks’ all-time leader in three-pointers made.
