As a player, Allan Houston commuted into the city like most suburbanites, only his night job was knocking down 3-pointers for the Knicks.
Known for his sweet shooting stroke during his the 12-year NBA career, Houston is now the General Manager of the Westchester Knicks by day, and suburban father of seven by night.
“It’s still a crazy schedule,” Houston says. “When I was playing, my oldest two were still a little too young to see me play.”
His kids get to see him in a behind-the-scenes role now, developing future Knicks.
