Carl Braun, was the first superstar of the NY Knicks, a five time All-Star, first teenager in the BAA/NBA, the man who coined the term “Swish” and who held the NBA single game scoring record until broken by Wilt Chamberlain. He is the 5th all-time leading scorer in Knicks history.
Congratulations to The Braun family for this achievement.
