Among Lee’s acquisitions was the used original net from Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals, won by the Knicks, and Holzman’s NBA coach of the year trophy that season. Lee paid $69,184 for the net and $31,517 for the trophy, according to the auction house in Laguna Niguel, California.
Lee attended Game 7 at Madison Square Garden as a 13-year-old. “It was a memory I will never forget,” he said in a statement from SCP Auctions. “Willis Reed coming back and the Garden went nuts. It was a very special moment in Knicks history.”
Holzman’s championship ring from 1970 went to a bidder for $107,482.
