The pro basketball star died in Edwardsville, IL yesterday at 88. He was
a seven-time All Star player nicknamed “The Horse.” Gallatin played for
the Knicks and coached the St. Louis Hawks in 1962. The Roxana, IL
native once commented about today’s soaring salaries: “Gosh,” he said.
“I made $4,500 when I joined the Knicks in 1948 and made $13,500 in my
best season. The money today is amazing.”
