    1983-84 Bernard King Game Worn New York Knicks Jersey.
    If you had to choose one word to describe Hall of Famer Bernard King it would be 'tenacious.' Few players have ever overcome the odds and risen to the heights that King did. After stellar career at Tennessee and two great seasons with the Nets, King's career went into a brief tailspin before he resurrected himself to become an All-Star with the Golden State Warriors. Later, he overcame a major knee injury and two-year absence to average 28.4 points per game and make the All-Star Team at age thirty-four.

    However it was his tenure with the Knicks where King cemented his legend and rose to a level few players have ever attained. In 1983-84 he averaged 26.3 points per game, shot 57.2% and was First Team All-NBA. His quick release, unstoppable post game, and clutch performances are rivaled by only a select few in the annals of the sport.

    The jersey on offer here is from the period when King's powers were at their zenith. Road blue mesh jersey exhibits definite wear with "NEW YORK 30" on front, "KING 30" on back, "Medalist Sand-Knit 46" and 'exclusive' tags in tail, and the necessary "Gerry Cosby" tag in the collar. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
