At 23 years of age i have only seen a little over half of the 90’s. I want to start by saying that is why i chose the players i chose for the Knicks overall dream team.
At starting Point Guard: Stephon Marbury (03-08)
Although the early 90’s had John Starks, i feel like Marbury did more for the franchise then Starks did. Honestly though im more then likely being bias due to the fact that i watched more of Marbury being that i was older when he was on the Knicks. Defensively he has 277 steals in only his 4 seasons with the knicks. Although i think the clear starter hear is either Marbury or Starks, the Knicks went on a tear were they had a bunch of point guard legends in Baron Davis, Jason Kidd, and Mike Bibby just to name a few.
At starting Shooting Guard: Allan Houston (96-05)
Not alot of competition for Houston being as though he was the Knicks main guy for nearly a decade. Needless to say id say his closest competition would have to be my all time favorite NBA player Jr Smith. His short lived Knicks Career was filled with 6th man of the year awards and highlight reels.
At starting Small Forward: Carmelo Anthony(11-17)
Easily argued that he is one of the best scorers to ever put on a Knicks uniform. Defineitely a shoe-in for the Knicks dream team. Never averaged 20 points or under in any season he played with the Knicks. He was also the scoring champ for the entire NBA for the 2012-2013 season. The only other SF i would put in a class with Melo is Anthony Mason (RIP). Anthony Mason is a Knicks Legend who did not play far into the 90’s but i still felt the need too put him on this list as a notable mention.
At Starting Power Forward: Charles Oakley (92-98)
In his six years for the Knicks Charles brought a bad boy persona for the New York Knicks. Never being much of a scoring threat, he was a nightmare defensively. You did not want to come in the paint in the garden because if you did you were in for a very long night. One notable mention i will say is Kristaps Porzingis. Although he has only been with the team for 3 seasons he is a future star of the league. In five years i personally believe that we will be talking about Porzingis in the same conversation with Lebron James If given the option id for sure have Kristaps as the Knicks dream team 6th man.
At starting Center: Big Patrick Ewing (92-00)
Patrick was one of few Knicks stars that was actually drafted by the Knicks. Ewing averaged a double-double for the first 6 seasons of him playing on the Knicks. Also never averaging below 22 points per game in his first 6 seasons with the team. Ewing was the face of the knicks for almost a decade same as Houston. One honorable mention id say for center would be Tyson Chandler. Chandler was a great compliment to Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudmire during their run in blue and orange. He brought alot of defensive play along with great rebounding kind of like the great Pat Ewing.
I know im a knicks fan and all, but id have to say this team all the players in their prime id say could beat any team any amount of times on any day. Truly unstoppable, the ultimate dream team.
