Superhero Basketball Quotes Patrick Ewing Quotes

Patrick Ewing Quotes

Although Patrick Ewing is known for his New York Knicks career, many people forget he also played very briefly for the Seattle SuperSonics and Orlando Magic.

Ewing is also the cause of the NBA Draft Lottery. He was such a hot prospect in 1985 and the NBA didn’t want teams losing on purpose in order to get the 1st pick.

So the league instituted the lottery, which gave each of the 7 teams not in the playoffs an equal chance of securing the first overall pick.

Even though Patrick Ewing never won a championship, he was an eleven time NBA All-Star, was named to the All-NBA First Team once, to the All-NBA Second Team six times, and to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team three times.

His number 33 was also retired by the New York Knicks on February 28, 2003.
