I've heard of bone spurs on the heels, but can someone get bone spurs in the knees?

In brief: Yes.
Bony spurs develop as one gets older, from wear and tear on joints, etc.
These are bony projections that form along joint margins. This can also happen in the neck and spinal column. Spurs can also appear on the feet, along toes, the heel, as well as on the hands. They can grow along a person's entire skeletal structure, including the knees. They're important since they can be near nerves.
