The idea of a New York City guard first came into being with players like Dick McGuire.

As old as I am, I don't remember Dick as a player. But he was coach of the Knicks when I first became aware of them.

And he'll be remembered by some as the coach who preceded Red Holtzman, who would lead the Knicks champions who captivated the city in the late 60s and early 70s.

Remarkably, McGuire stayed in the Knicks organization for the rest of his life, which ended this week.

I had a chance to meet him on a couple of occasions when he was scouting area colleges for the team and he was a down-to-earth, friendly man.
