John Starks is the star of arguably the most famous play in the history of the Knicks. In 1993 the Knickerbockers hosted the Bulls in the playoffs as they so often did. Starks would be the beneficiary of a screen by Patrick Ewing that led to a massive dunk. The dunk happened to be over Horace Grant and Michael Jordan. Now this is made extra special by the fact Jordan had done this to the Knicks on several occasions, one of which being the low point in Patrick Ewings career. A highlight he can not escape. Luckily Knicks fans have this play in their back pocket if a Bulls fan ever tries talking trash.

 

I was going to use I believe I can fly, but that would be way too easy. I did not go with the cliche song, somehow I have a friend that likes Creed. And somehow I have to admit they have quite the catchy rock ballad from 1999. So that is how I found the song I really wanted to go with. Higher goes perfectly with the Starks Dunk. The chorus is simple, “can you take me higher?” I am quite sure that Starks could not have taken his team any higher then he did on that dunk.
