Poor Patrick Jr.! Guy's just out of college and is now on his third NBA team. Weird. And even more bizarre is why the Rockets would give away a player for nothing. But in the end, what difference does any of this make since Patrick Jr. is a longshot to make any team.

I want this man (p. ewing jr) to succeed here in new york. We have some young talent to build on. Danilo G. & Chandler plus this kid Ewing jr. is something to look forward, hopefully will bring some good luck to the 'Hurting Knicks'

New York Knicks should start building and training these young guys. By next year we have a chance to get some of the All Star Players.
Get rid of Old Players - they're not gonna get better. Jerome James & Malik Rose in particular, these guys are pretty much done/nothing to improve just taking the time & chances of our young players.
Keep up the "faith" NY KNICKS - It's time to 'REBOUND'. Get Young shot blocker and rebounders - PLEASE !

I can't believe this again we aquire a short player who can't shoot for a big body that has so much potential. Weis will now go on to have a great career.

As a long time fan of the Knicks, I think Patrick Ewing bares alot of the blame for the Knick current salery cap problems. And as such is partly responsible for the Knicks problems. His greed had no bounds. They should have let him leave as a free agent at the end of his career. Instead they give him a huge contract. When he was without talent. Then try to trade him by taking back, huge contacts from no talent stars.

And now we have to keep it going by trading for his no talent son.

Give me a break!!!!!!!!
