New York Knicks history is littered with...mediocrity. Lots and lots of mediocrity. Outside of a glorious four-season period between 1969-1973, the New York Knicks have won zero NBA championships and made just five Finals series in 61 years.

Thus, making a list of the best 50 players in New York Knicks history presents a challenge no man can meet.

Well, scratch that. I just made that list, but I was crying for help after 15. In a 50-man slideshow, Trent Tucker, Stephon Marbury, Charlie Ward and Vince Boryla found themselves aboard.

However, the cream rises to the top, and a surprise awaits in the top five. I also await the inevitable fights with the Anthony Mason Fan Club.

Let's get to it, starting with the man who has the best nickname in New York Knicks history.

Note: I am abiding by the Bernard King Rule here. A player has to have participated in at least parts of three seasons with the Knicks to be on this list. So no Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony yet. It would be very difficult to place them anyway.
