Like a week ago, I got really curious. I wanted to find a list of who has worn which numbers on the Knicks. I didn't think it was going to be hard, I've seen lists like that for other teams, there's like 10 pages that just have Yankees uniform numbers and nothing else.
But I couldn't find one for the Knicks.
And since uniform numbers are a common topic here, or at least I remember discussing them once or twice, I wanna get a Knicks uniform number listing.
Here's how this is going to work: I'm going to list as many players for each number I can think of off the top of my head, and then, you guys figure out what I missed, and comment, and then hopefully Seth will figure out how to edit it to have what you suggested. Then, this can be a debate-ending machine, so like if you and your friend get into an argument about Tim Thomas' uni number, you can come here, and be like "HAH!" Trust me, that's going to happen.
And when someone gets traded and gets a new number, we can be like "these are the players that had that number previously". Simple shit like that.
I'm going with chronological order, from most recent to least recent.
And don't criticize how sucky my list is. I almost forgot Anthony Mason. And I'm not old enough to remember Rory Sparrow, or his uniform number, although, if I had to guess, I'd say 2. So we need help from the elders. In fact, most of what I got is from the years since 2000.

I doubt I even got all the current Knicks on there. Together, we can make a semi-definitive list of uniform numbers of players who have been on the Knicks, since, oh, I don't know, the early 1990's, or possibly late 80's. So mark down what I missed in the comments, because I want this to be good.
