Congratulations to Coach George Karl for notching his 1,000th career win last night against the Toronto Raptors.
I was reviewing the list of NBA Coaches who have reached this milestone. 5 out of the 7 NBA Coaches to do so either played for the New York Knicks or coached them at one point and time. See below.
Don Nelson, Lenny Wilkens, Pat Riley & Larry Brown have all had coaching tenures in New York. Phil Jackson obviously was a player not a coach but is still linked to the Knicks.
