There’s been a lot of New York Knicks talk after the Charles Oakley debacle at Madison Square Garden last week. Yesterday at MSG, Latrell Sprewell made a cameo at The World’s Most Famous Arena and sat next to a beloved Knick, Larry Johnson.
Johnson, now a Knicks employee, is beloved by all in NYC for the legendary 4- point play that he completed against the Indiana Pacers, which gave the Knicks a 2-1 lead in the series.
Johnson took one dribble left, absorbed contact from Antonio Davis and launched a three-pointer. The whistle blew and the shot went in; tying the game at 91 apiece.
“This is New York, man and everywhere I go here, it’s like I’m a legend,” Johnson told me on Scoop B Radio.
Johnson reflected on how that changed his life in the Big City. “ I done took the nickname Larry Legend,” he said.
“I didn’t think I was that old, really. But that’s what cats have been calling me simply because I believe, the four point play. It’s just one play. It’s the greatest play, I’ve had. I’ve had some pretty good moments in this game: winning a championship in college, being the number one, but making a four point play against one of our arch rivals at Madison Square Garden, that was the craziest.”
