I hate to say it but Ewing brought this on himself. He demanded a trade just before his contract was up when he knew that it would hurt his Knicks. That trade put us on the road to cap he.ll. We are still paying for that trade.

Ewing will always be one of the best to ever wear a Knicks uniform, some say they greatest, hard to argue with that but he gave his former team the royal shaft and never showed any remorse for it.

It might speed his return if he were more upfront about the way he left and showed some regret for his hasty decision.

Regardless, I still would love to see the big fella come back. His contributions to
the team far outweigh the negatives so I hope we can see him on the sidelines next season an assistant coach.

"Despite an outcry from fans to bring back the franchise's greatest player"
When I read this I thought the fans wanted Walt Frazier to coach but I then remembered the article is about Ewing.
Bring in Mark Jackson and let Ewing be where he is.
He left NY content to be gone...stay gone.

PS - I really appreciated Patrick as a player but he did force his trade away from NY and was more focused on playing a longer career than suiting up for the San Antonio series. His career was almost up at that point and I am sorry to say but he was no Willis Reed at that point and time. Then again there is only one Willis.

Ewing would be a waste to even bring in untill we have a real big man. Curry is another one of Isiah's brilliant manuevers that we will pay for.

they should publically humiliate isiah outside msg. hang him atop the garden. give him the biggest wedgee the world has ever seen. he should be castrated. he should not be able to reproduce. he is a pile of human excrement. other than that, he's not a bad guy, imo.

The present Knicks can choke on their own. They don't need Ewing teaching them how to guarantee championships and then hope someone else actually gets it done.

These Knicks need a short-fused, foul mouthed hothead as a coach ... jumping up & down on the sidelines.
The players would no longer fart around in practice.
