Why didn’t the Knicks give Patrick Ewing a call?

First the Knicks trade Patrick Ewing to the Sonics, which was the beginning of the end of their reign as a powerhouse in the East, and now the Knicks don’t even give Patrick Ewing an call for an interview for the recently filled Head Coaching position.

Besides the fact the Patrick Ewing is one of the greatest Knicks of all time, he has actually been a pretty good assistant Coach in Orlando working with Magic. He works closely with Dwight Howard and Dwight has made considerable improvement over the years. With Ewing’s help, the sky is the limit for Dwight now:

Mike D’Antoni was put on the spot about the issue and he said t hat he’d consider Ewing for an assistant position but I wouldn’t hold me breathe.Ewing shared his feelings about the whole situation:

“There’s nobody who is an assistant coach who doesn’t want to be a head coach,” said Ewing, who has been an assistant for five seasons and is credited with lifting center Dwight Howard to the next level. “Unless you’ve already been a head coach and you’re older and you’re just putting in hours until you retire. I’m young. I’d definitely want to be a head coach one day. And I’m disappointed I didn’t get a call, yeah.

“I think I’m an up and coming coach. I think I’m going to be a good head coach one day. Even if I don’t get the job, I felt I deserved at least to get an interview.”

What goes around comes around for the Knicks though. After they traded him they just haven’t been able to get things together. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to the Knicks again but don’t be surprised if it does. Karma is a bitch.
