Everybody's Got A Record: Patrick Ewing Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball basketball player holds some kind of record.**

Patrick's 1,039 games as a Knick are the most ever for the team.

I really enjoy doing these non-baseball "Everybody's Got A Record" [see my Ed Asner post] and this one is no different. Patrick Ewing was one of my favorite players as a kid because he wasn't a Bull and really I could only take so many Bulls' championships.

I really can't explain how I don't remember this but Patrick was a Seattle Supersonic for the 2000-2001 season [he was also a member of the Magic for 2001-2002]. When I lived in Seattle the Sonics became my adopted NBA team of choice and would have been really great to have Kevin Durant tearing it up as a Sonic instead.

Here are a selection of Patrick as a Sonic cards:

Ewing with the Sonics or Magic reminds me of Robert Parrish with the Bulls.

This is a great series idea. I was a Jordan fan back in the day, but I always had a spot im my heart for the Knicks, "Derek Harper!!!". I wish one of those Knickerbocker teams would have won it all. I don't think there would be a contest if those Knicks teams were in the NBA today. They would dominate in todays laissez faire NBA.
