I've met (----) from the New York Knicks {my claim to fame, lol}.


Ever run into an athlete, celebrity or semi-celebrity?  We all have our "claim to fame" stories to tell, and i thought i'd get the ball rolling with my own.  Silly post, but what the hey, we live in an Age of Celebrity anyway!

 

As you know, New York Knick Numero Uno Pat Ewing is here in Orlando coaching up Dwight Howard.  Every Magic game i attend, i make it a point to give Pat a shout before the game during the warmups.  Sucks how after 6 or 7 years Dwight stil hasan't developed a solid midrange or post jumpshot (which Pat was lethal with), but hey, it is what it is.

Before every game, Dwight and Pat are usually the only ones on the court, with Dwight goofing around and playing with fans, and Pat is usually trying to lasso Dwight down to toss him passes into the post and work on his game.  This particular game, before the NY vs ORL game this season, I yelled a hello at Pat, and he heard me and glanced.  He searched for a second in the crowd, found me, and lofted the ball to me in the stands.  After i caught it, he motioned for  me to shoot it (i looked like what?! how?!) and then he motioned for me to pass it to Dwight.  So i 1-armed it to Dwight who did his litte silly fake turnaround jumper routine and banked it off the glass...it was too funny, yo. 

So, my claim to fame is i received a pass from Patrick Ewing!  The NBA ball feels freaking great, man. Most happy about my pass from Pat, but my assist to Dwight was kind of an add-on, haha.  Dwight is cool, but Pat's game still commands my respect, yo.
