Bernard King Sports Illustrated April 2013Bernard King is finally going to get his rightful place in the Hall of Fame, as the New York Post among other reports are indicating that the announcement will be made on Monday.

King is best known for his time with the New York Knicks, for whom he played from 1982-1987, a period during which he averaged 26.5 points per game. He began his career with the Nets in 1979 and finished it with them in 1993.

For his career, King averaged 22.5 points. He had a prolific 1984-85 season, averaging 32.5 points. He was was named to four All-Star Games. King had been nominated six times.

I was lucky enough to watch King in his prime and have a lasting memory of him torching my hometown Detroit Pistons by averaging 43 points per game in a five-game series where the Knicks won.

Even though I'll never factor into a Hall-of-Fame voting, I've long been a supporter of King being in there. It'll be nice to know that he'll finally get in.
