30. Willis Reed

Willis Reed is the most beloved NBA Hall of Fame basketball player to play for the New York Knicks organization.

Reed made a monumental impact on the Knicks during his tenure with them because he was able to lead the organization to two NBA Championships in 1970 and 1973. These are the only NBA championships that the Knicks ever won, and it was solely do to the brilliant play by this seven-time NBA All-Star.

Reed is a very special NBA star as he was the first player ever to be named the Most Valuable Player in the NBA season, NBA All-Star game, and NBA Finals all in the same season (1969-1970).
