Richie Guerin elected to HOF

By Ian Begley

Richie Guerin is a Hall of Famer.

Bernard King may not be far behind.

Guerin, the former Knick great, was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame via the Veteran’s Committee.

Guerin, whose franchise record of 29 straight games of scoring at least 20 points was broken by Carmelo Anthony this season, was born in the Bronx.

The point guard played seven years with the Knicks and was named an All-Star in six of them.

King, a Brooklyn native and former Knick great, was named one of 12 finalists for this year’s induction class.

The Brooklyn-bred King averaged 22 points over a 15-year career. He scored an eye-popping 34.8 points per game for the Knicks in the 1984 playoffs.

The Class of 2013 will be unveiled at the NCAA Final Four in April.
