Posnack, along with St.John’s teammates  Allie Schuckman, Mac Kinsbrunner, Matty Begovich and Rip Gerson turned professional as as the Brooklyn Jewels, then after three seasons renamed themselves the New York Jewels, although they continued to play all home games in Brooklyn.  In six seasons, they reached three finals and won one championship, the 1932-33 Metropolitan Basketball League title.
