Anyone who is at least a fairweather fan of the NBA knows of the exploits of Willis Reed and how his career can be measured in one defining moment during the 1970 NBA Finals. He suffered a critical injury in game six and was ruled out for a defining game seven. He surprised everyone though, when he walked out during shoot-around in full uniform. He scored the first two baskets for the Knicks, his only points of the game, and inspired New York to go on to win game seven and their first championship.
Career Averages: 19 ppg, 13 rpg, and 2 apg.
