Could we see Ewing on the Knicks' bench one day?
"I hope that one day I get to come back home because I do live in this area, I still consider this my area, I still consider myself a Knick. Hopefully one day I’ll be brought back here," Ewing, the Knicks' career scoring leader, said in response to a question from Lupica.
i know i would love him back. he also goes on about the lack of centers as coaches in the NBA:
"People think that just because you're a center, you're not as smart as the guards or the smaller guys. I think that's a load of crap. When I played with the Knicks, I was just as important or just as smart as any other of the guards I played with. I still had to call out plays, notice schemes, know the systems, do everything they had to do."
and then he embraces the talent of stat and melo:
"I can't speak bad about my teammates. I think my teammates were great guys, they were great teammates, I had fun playing with them," he said. "[But] when I look at [Amare] Stoudemire and Carmelo [Anthony], I've said it before, I never played with that kind of caliber.
"It is what it is. Like I said before, I love my teammates, we did the best that we could for the city of New York, but it just wasn’t in the cards for us."
please, can ewing atleast be our D. Assistant. i guarantee it will spark dwights interest in NY. and well, he knows what he's talking about. so why not?
