New York Knicks and MSG Declare Celebrations to Honor Patrick Ewing’s NBA Career

By 1 month ago

The NBA community has celebrated several legends over the years. The most recent Hall of Famer to join this list is Patrick Ewing, a New York Knicks’ star. The Knicks have decided to honor Ewing by naming a week after him. Here are the details.

How the New York Knicks plan to celebrate Patrick Ewing’s career

The New York Knicks drafted Patrick Ewing, a decorated college basketball player, back in 1985. Ewing spent almost his entire career with the Kicks, before joining the Seattle Supersonics and the Orlando Magic, later on.

At his peak, before his Achilles tendon and his wrist injury, Ewing posted 23.5 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.7 blocks, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

After retiring from the league, Ewing went back to base, this time as a coach for the Georgetown Hoyas. Very recently, the 57-year-old Hall of Famer also battled COVID-19, and has now recovered.

Now, the New York Knicks and the MSG Networks seem to have taken it upon themselves to make sure Ewing’s decorated career remains in people’s minds. Together, the two companies recently declared that the upcoming week will be known as the ‘Patrick Ewing Week’.
