Seeing Patrick Ewing so expressive is a strange and wonderful thing.
Here’s this man who, by far, was the best player on the team in the biggest city in the country, and is, to many, a bonafide legend.
Modern history, though, mostly ignores him. Partially because of his lack of rings, partially for how comically close, yet so far away from a title his Knicks were, and partially because there were arguably better centers than him in his prime.
He averaged at least 20 points a game in his first 13 years. 11 straight seasons of 10 or more rebounds per game. His best season was the 1989-90 campaign, during which he averaged 28 points, 11 rebounds, and a startling 4 blocks per game. For people to remember this man as a shiller of Snickers, an expressionless assistant coach, and a punchline to a joke about Atlanta strip clubs is a travesty.
Patrick Ewing, you’re a legend. Come and get your dap.

If I may: The Knicks are in a desert. The Knicks have a bottle of water. They dump the water in the sand because fuck the water. They become thirsty. Luckily, there is an oasis with more water. But fuck the water. The Knicks insist on having champagne airlifted in from thousands of miles away even though champagne is extremely expensive and might not last the trip intact and might make them drunk and disoriented and doesn’t necessarily even quench thirst. This is how this feels to me. Any other team drinks water when its thirsty. If they need a GM, they grab a The Knicks won’t do that. They refuse to behave like a normal team.

J.R. Smith was raised in a suburban, middle-class home with two good parents and access to an excellent education. He had a tremendous high school coaching mentor – Dan Hurley at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, N.J. – and he has long been taught the difference of right and wrong. Smith’s always loved to play the part of a tough city kid, but truth be told, he’s a soft, spoiled, suburban jump-shooter.
