1994 was the greatest summer of my life (even with the Knicks loss)

Graduated from High School and had the Knicks and Rangers to watch basically every night.

But Marv and John bring back such great memories of watching Knick games.
RIP

always sounded like he was enjoying himself during the broadcasts ...good natured guy.
He was a teammate

of my mentor, surrogate father, boss & coach-Jim Cunningham-of the Fordham teams from the fifties. Jim (RIP-we lost him to cancer in 91) was a first-round pick of the Celtics. John, I think, was a sophomore when Jim was a senior.

I met him during a couple of reunions at Rose Hill. It was obvious that what Jim said about John was true-nicest guy in the world, although he was a fierce competitor when he was playing . Sad news . RIP
would be nice

if MSG would rebroadcast some of those classic Knick games tomorrow in honor of Andariese
If any of John's family is here

I want to let them know how much Knick fans loved John. He was genuine and the best!
RIP
