He only played 40 games for the Celtics during that infamous 1978-79 NBA season, but you can see from this bio, he had some decent years before joining Boston:Named an NBA All-Star in the Pacers’ inaugural season in the league (1976-77), Knight finished that year as the league’s second-leading scorer (behind Pete Maravich) with an average of 26.6 points per game. Over his 11 pro seasons he averaged 16.9 ppg as a player with Boston, Buffalo (Braves), Kansas City (Kings) and San Antonio, as well as Indiana. He earned two other berths on the NBA All-Star team and one appearance in the ABA All-Star game. In 1975, Knight was selected to the ABA’s All-Rookie team.
