For Old Time’s Sake: Patrick Ewing
It seems as though Patrick Ewing has been on the receiving end of some of the filthiest dunks in NBA history. I’ve learned this by scouring youtube for videos to share with you basketball nuts. I grew up in NY, so being a fan of #33 was natural. While he may not be the greatest center of all time, he is certainly among the greatest. He led the Knicks to the Finals twice (’94 & ’99) and represents the glory days of New York basketball for anyone not around in the early 70s. Ewing won a National Championship at Georgetown in ’84 and was the National Player Of The Year in ’85. You can imagine how ecstatic New York was when they landed him with the first pick in the ’86 draft. He went on to win the ’86 ROY, become an 11x NBA All Star, win a Gold medal with the original Dream Team, and be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Not too shabby.
