Carmelo Anthony might one day be considered the greatest All-Star in New York Knicks history. He scored 29 points in last year’s NBA All-Star Game, tied for second most by a Knick in All-Star history (with 2011’s Amar’e Stoudemire).
In 2013, Anthony will be the Eastern Conference starting small forward for the second time in as many years and, barring injury, is a veritable lock to do it the remaining two years of his Knicks’ contract.
He still has some All-Star dues to pay, though, before cracking the rankings of all-time Knicks All-Stars.
One Knick, for example, was selected 11 times. Two other Knicks won the All-Star Game MVP. Eight Knicks made at least five trips apiece. There are a handful of double-doubles in there and a 30-point outing, too.
In all, 31 different Knicks have been named to the East’s All-Star team. Which five represented New York the best over their careers?
