Patrick Ewing Lobbying for Knicks’ Head Coach Position

on

In between the hugs and embraces that will forever come at the Garden, Patrick Ewing wondered why, despite over a decade as a successful assistant, he hasn’t been offered a head position.

Then he stumped for the job with the most sentimental value before the Knicks’ 111-97 home loss to Charlotte.

“You know, this is a great fit for me. I have my number up there (in the Garden rafters). I still live in the area,” Ewing said. “If I get an opportunity for an interview I’d be happy.”

“I’ve been doing this, what, 13 years now? I see people who don’t have the same amount on their resume as I do and still have gotten opportunities,” Ewing said Wednesday.
