Patrick Ewing Enters Hall With Legacy But No Ring

The Hall-Of-Fame has called out Patrick Ewing for the top honor in basketball, and rightfully so. History will remember Ewing as a passionate great, but still, something will always be missing.

That missing piece will be an NBA Title. Ewing does not stand alone in this arena, but that still does not change the facts in the case. Sure, plenty of great one in the 1990's walk away from the NBA without rings, thanks in large measure to Michael Jordan running wild, winning six times, leaving dust in the wake of his Nike's.

The cast surrounding Ewing also left much to be desired. Should he have had a big-time guard to feed him the ball during his time in the Garden, things may have been different. Still, there were years when Jordan called a time out in his NBA career. Ewing and the Knicks could not take advantage, then falling again into the pattern of afterthought once Jordan returned to prominence.

It would have been nice to see Patrick Ewing, one time at least, take the Knicks on his shoulders, and blast through Jordan, proving that he, Ewing, was indeed the best in the NBA. Even when Jordan was away, to get past the Rockets in the NBA Finals, or the Indiana Pacers in the East.

Patrick Ewing goes down as the best player ever for the New York Knicks, a terrific feat in itself. He now joins a team in the Hall befitting a player of his talents, something that could not be said during his tenure with the Knicks.
