Hanging high atop the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, is the name “Holzman” and the number “613.” That is the total number of wins by former New York Knicks head coach Red Holzman and amounts to the most in franchise history. While he spent six years as a player and another six as an executive, he’s most famous for his time at the helm of the Knickerbockers, where he led the team to their only two championships: the first in 1969–70 and the second in 1972–73. He coached the team for fourteen seasons during his illustrious career, was named one of the top ten coaches in NBA history, and was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1986.  Up for auction as part of the Red Holzman collection is a presentation plate the Knicks gave to Red for his exemplary career with the organization. It is made of sterling silver and is engraved with signatures of the greatest players he coached. These include Willis Reed at center; Bill Bradley, Dave DeBusschere, Cazzie Russell and Jerry Lucas at the forwards, and Walt Frazier, Earl Monroe and Dick Barnett as the guards. This plate is a great piece of memorabilia showcasing the amazing career of a coaching legend.
