My favourite player. From 36 games at Golden State to the CBA, he rose against the odds to get drafted by New York in October, 1990. During the final cut at summer camp, he went all-out on a dunk on Ewing. Needless to say, he broke his arm but at least he landed a place in the team. From there he just blossomed to become an All Star guard for New York.

Fearless and bold, this streaky outside shooter can match anyone trey-for-trey and dunk-for-dunk. Last year he became the first NBA player in history to can more than 200 from downtown (217). And we all know he can dunk, as he taught a flying lesson with that huge monster of a dunk he dealt to Horace Grant and Michael Jordan in the 1993 Playoffs... Ouch!
