Bernard King Biography
Bernard King was born December 4, 1956 in Brooklyn, New York and is a retired American professional basketball player at the small forward position in the NBA and one of the league's all-time greatest scorers. He played all or part of 14 seasons with the New Jersey Nets (19771979, 1992-93), Utah Jazz (1979-80), Golden State Warriors, (19811982), New York Knicks (19821987), and the Washington Bullets (19871991).
Bernard King attended college at the University of Tennessee and was selected 7th overall in the 1977 NBA Draft by the New York Nets, who months later relocated from Uniondale, New York to New Jersey and became known as the New Jersey Nets.
At 6'7 and 205 pounds, Bernard King epitomized the NBA small forward of the 1980s. Long arms and a quick release, King was explosive runner on the fast-break, King was known as a tremendous scorer, leading the NBA in scoring in 1985 with 32.9 points per game. He was twice selected to the All-NBA First Team and three times to the NBA All-Star Game.
In 2004, King was nominated for election into the Basketball Hall Of Fame. However, he has not yet been elected. Some say his candidacy is handicapped by the relatively small number of games he played (874) and the abundance of high-scoring small forwards of the era such as Adrian Dantley and Mark Aguirre, of whom only Dantley has been elected to the hall-of-fame.
