The Pearl, Black Jesus. As a member of the Baltimore Bullets and later the New York Knicks, Earl Monroe dazzled fans and opponents alike with streetball dribbling and scoring flair. Monroe was especially adept at the spin move, which he would often use to freeze defenders before blowing past them to the hoop.
"Earl Monroe destroyed me with that spin move tonight. I knew it was coming, but I couldn't stop it." - Jerry West
