"Go for the moon. If you don't get it you will still be heading for a star."

NBA Great Willis Reed

Sport Quote Photo

In 1997, Willis Reed was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA History.

Willis Reed pulled off a trifecta in 1970 when he was named MVP of the All-Star Game, MVP of the regular season and MVP of the NBA Finals.

That season, Willis led the Knicks to their first NBA Championship as they defeated the Baltimore Bullets, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers in the playoffs.

Reed also was named MVP of the finals three years later when the Knicks defeated the Lakers again to win another Championship.

Reed was a seven time All-Star who played in the NBA for 10 seasons and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1982.

Reed played his college ball at Grambling and was the NBA's Rookie of the Year in 1964-65.

Reed has been both a coach and front office executive during his post-playing days.

book cover
"Howard Kellman has spent a lifetime in baseball, and through the stories in this book he teaches us valuable lessons such as: if a girl in a bar wants you to take her to Midnight Mass - do it, never use gasoline to dry a field, and always let your wife know when a game goes extra innings. Trust me, it will pay off."
- Howie Rose, Broadcaster, New York Mets
