Willis Reed Inspires Knicks to Title – Game 7, 1970 NBA Finals

The sight of Willis Reed — torn muscle in his thigh and all — limping through the Madison Square Garden tunnel onto its court and scoring the New York Knicks’ first two field goals remains one of the most iconic sports sequences of all time. Although he only scored those four points, Reed inspired New York to defeat Wilt Chamberlain and the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 7 of the 1970 Finals, giving the Knicks their first NBA title in franchise history. No Game 7 hoops conversation is complete without a Willis Reed mention. (Photo: Focus on Sport/Getty Images)
