Marking the New York Knicks and NBA’s 75th anniversary, FOCO launched five bobbleheads featuring their current and past stars.
RJ Barrett and Julius Randle represent the current Knicks generation. Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, and Willis Reed — three of the greatest players ever to wear the orange and blue jersey — complete the collection.
Barrett and Randle’s bobbleheads are portrayed in an action pose wearing their alternate city jersey with the cityscape in a thematic, team-colored as backdrop. Both bobbleheads stand atop a Madison Square Garden-themed base with the Knicks logo (circa 1995-96, 2010-11) displayed in front.
Ewing, Frazier, and Willis bobbleheads have a distinct feature of a diamond-themed base to show off their exclusive status as being named to the NBA 75th Anniversary team. All three legends are in an action pose wearing the classic orange and blue Knicks jersey with a diamond basketball. While Ewing and Reed sport the present Knicks logo, Frazier has the 1964-65, 1978-79 Knicks logo in front of his diamond-themed base.
Each bobblehead is individually numbered, handcrafted, and hand-painted. They are now available for pre-order at FOCO’s official website.
Extension eligible this summer, Barrett has recently inked a three-year commitment to represent Canada in all FIBA tournaments with an eye on the 2024 Paris Olympics. His goal next season is to become an All-Star.
On the other hand, Randle hopes to bounce back from a lackluster season after leading the Knicks to their first playoff appearance since 2013 in the previous season as the Most Improved Player, All-Star and an All-NBA Second Team member.
Ewing was the last Knicks’ first overall pick and carried the franchise to their only successful stretch over the previous four decades. Frazier and Reed are vital cogs of the Knicks’ two championship teams in the early 70s.
