    1981-82 Paul Westphal New York Knicks Uniform. An extremely popular figure in National Basketball Association history, Paul Westphal put together a storied career both as a player and head coach. During his days as a player the Torrance, California native was part of the 1974 world champion Boston Celtics, and was named to the NBA All-Star team five time. As a coach Westphal led the 1993 Phoenix Suns to the NBA Finals, where they would lose in six games to the Chicago Bulls.

    Offered here is an ultra-cool style jersey and pants that Westphal wore with the New York Knicks during the 1981-82 season. This rare style Knicks uniform in midnight navy and maroon was the product of owner Mike Burke's obsession with his alma mater's (University of Pennsylvania) colors. Both pieces present white mesh fabric, with two-color tackle twill identifiers throughout. The jersey has the proper Knicks exclusivity tag, "Cosby" tag and "[size] 42" flap tag in the lower tail, while the shorts also have the exclusivity and Cosby tags, with the flap tag noted as "[size] 36." Exhibiting light use, while all original, this set presents one of the most popular Knickerbocker styles among collectors. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
