  • 1949-57

  • 9th in franchise history with 5.7 assists per game
  • No. 15 jersey retired, Basketball Hall of Famer

“Tricky Dick” – yes that was actually the man’s nickname – was the first true Knickerbocker.

Of course those eight points per game won’t blow anybody away, but remember the era for which the guy played in. It was a completely different game when the NBA officially opened for business and Dick McGuire was balling.
