I personally had the privilege & pleasure of meeting John countless number of times over the last 25 plus years. I used to see him after Knick games in the lobby going back to the late 1980's. He was always friendly to me. In fact, when the King & I returned from our dream trip as he called it back in early February 1992, John saw us & said you should frame those ticket stubs.

In 2014, he was honored by the Basketball Hall of Fame when they named him the recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award. I remember the Knicks honoring him on Garden vision against the Dallas Mavericks on February 24, 2014.
My deepest sympathy goes out to your family. I'll never forgot the way you treated me over the years. Thank you for the memories.
Thank you for reading & following along.
