Reed now serves as VP of Basketball Operations for the Hornets.
Welcome to The Show! On Wednesday, NBA Hall of Famer and former New York Knick Willis Reed will stop by to take your questions!

Reed's heroic performance in the 1970 NBA Finals, particularly Game 7, is included in ESPN.com's NBA Greatest Moments bracket. After suffering a thigh injury in Game 5, Reed's availability for Game 7 was in serious doubt. Teammate Bill Bradley revealed that the team was still uncertain of his status as they ran out to the court. Reed, like a knight in shining armor, limped his way from the lockerroom and managed to score the first two baskets of the game. He wouldn't score again but his courage propelled the Knicks to their first championship.

Reed would lead the Knicks to another championship in 1973. He played 10 seasons in the Big Apple and appeared in seven All-Star Games, won Rookie of the Year in 1964-65, Most Valuable Player in 1969-70 and was named Finals MVP in both 1970 and 1973.

Send your questions now and join Willis in The Show on Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET!
