Former New York Knicks stars help Sandy relief efforts – PHOTOS

Former New York Knicks players, John Wallace and Larry Johnson, along with NBA staff members got together in Staten Island to help Sandy relief efforts, according to NBA official website.

On Wednesday a nor’easter with rain and wet snow blustered into New York, plunging homes right back into darkness, stopping commuter trains again and inflicting another round of misery on thousands of people still reeling from superstorm Sandy’s blow more than a week ago.

Wallace played for the Knicks in 1996-1997, and 1999-00 seasons, mostly coming off the bench as a back-up power forward.

He averaged 6.5 ppg for NYK during the 99-00 season. His career averages are 381 games (45 started), 7.6 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 16.1 mpg. Wallace retired from the NBA after the 2003-2004 season.

Larry Johnson, a two-time NBA All-Star (1993, 1995) played 10 years in the NBA, 5 of them with the Knicks. After being traded from the Charlotte Hornets to the Knicks before the 1995-1996 season, Johnson was never the same player he was in Charlotte, because of injuries and back pains.  Johnson averaged his best 15.5 ppg and 5.7 rpg with NYK in 1997-98. He retired after the 2000-2001 season.
