Earl Monroe, affectionately nicknamed “Earl the Pearl”, played in the National Baseball Association for the Baltimore Bullets (1967-1971) and New York Knicks (1971-1980). Monroe was a four-time NBA All-Star and first-team All-NBA selection in 1969. He became a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990 and was named by the NBA to its 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. He was picked by the Bullets with the 2nd selection in the 1967 draft and, in his first season, was named first-team All-Rookie and Rookie of the Year. Monroe’s jersey was retired by both the Knicks and Washington Wizards.

In a rematch of the 1972 NBA Finals, Monroe was a member of the Knicks team along with future Hall of Fame teammates Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley, Jerry Lucas, Willis Reed, Dave DeBusschere and Phil Jackson that won a championship in 1973 after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, 4-1. For the series, Monroe averaged 16 points with 4.2 assists per game. Monroe was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and played collegiately at Winston-Salem State.
