Forward, 1977-79, 1992-93
A year after the debacle of the Dr. J sale, when the team fled Long Island for Rutgers, King was the star that made the Nets worth watching. He averaged 24.2 and 21.6 points in his first two seasons, gave them a foothold in the NBA and led them into their first NBA playoff in 1978-79. Even though he’s better known as a Knick, King has been a big advocate of the Nets’ move to Brooklyn, the home borough for him and his brother Albert, another Nets alumnus. (Credit: AP)
