"I honestly didn’t even know who the coach was when I was coming to New York. I just wanted to win a championship; I didn’t even know who was coaching. I didn’t care. It could have been Aunt Jemima. They could have had the syrup coaching. I was coming here regardless. I just wanted to win a championship." - Metta World Peace

June 26, 1991 - The Hornets selected Larry Johnson with the first overall pick of the NBA Draft

The 1991 NBA Draft took place in in New York City, New York. Dikembe Mutombo is regarded as the best overall pick in this draft, becoming one of the greatest defensive centers in the history of the league. He was a four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year award winner and an eight-time All-Star, and played in the league for 18 seasons.

Larry Johnson won the 1992 NBA Rookie of the Year award and was a two-time All-Star, the first player to represent the Charlotte Hornets franchise at an All Star game. However, a trade to the New York #Knicks caused his numbers to decline dramatically and ongoing back problems further decreased his effectiveness. Due to his chronic back problems, he retired in 2001.

Congratulations Carmelo Anthony on winning the 2012-13 NBA Scoring Title

Carmelo Anthony averaged 28.7 points per game.

This is the the first scoring title of Anthony’s 10-year NBA career. However, weirdly enough, this is not Anthony’s highest scoring average of his career. That came during the 2006-07 season, when he averaged 28.9 points per game for George Karl’s Denver Nuggets. Anthony is the first Knick to win the league scoring title since Bernard King led the league during the 1984-85 season.

Lenny Wilkins was the first to achieve the record.

Nelson coached the Milwaukee Bucks, the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Golden State Warriors.

An innovator, Nelson is credited with, among other things, inventing the concept of the point forward, a tactic which is frequently employed by teams at every level today. His unique brand of basketball is often referred to as Nellie Ball. He was named one of the Top 10 coaches in NBA history. On April 7, 2010, he passed Lenny Wilkens for first place on the all-time NBA wins list with 1,333 wins. His all-time record is 1,335–1,063 (.557).
