Patrick Ewing, Jr is a Knick.
Frederick Weis, the worst draft pick in this generation of Knicks basketball that I am aware of, is finally gone.
Today is a good day.
Thanks to Paulnoize for breaking it here on Knicksdefense in the last post.
I have not seen very much of Ew2’s game, but for those of you that have, is he any better than Malik Rose? If so, we’ll take him.
This sort of reminds me of when Allan Houston announced that comeback at this time last season. There were defenders that considered it nothing more than a publicity stunt, and for all intensive purposes they were right. Who knows if this latest move will result in a spike in season ticket sales. If they really wanted my money all they had to do was get the OG Ewing and Oakley on that bench as assistants to teach Eddy Curry and Zach Randolph how to play Knick basketball.
Imagine if Houston makes his second comeback attempt with the Knicks? Maybe if we could have sent Zbo packing earlier this summer we could have had Camby back as well. Houston, Camby, Ewing, throw in a Spree and a JVG and you’ve got nostalgia, if not another lottery team…
But I say give the kid a chance, if he at least has the heart and hustle that his father brought to the basketball court every night for 15 years, he may earn a spot on this roster ahead of career underachievers such as Jerome James.
Oh, did you guys hear? I heard Marbury is buying a jet of some kind. Whatever.
Goodbye Freddy… We should have drafted Artest, but you already knew that, didn’t you?
Jacked this clip from Berman’s. Enjoy.
