    Sep 11, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    UPDATE 10:42 am: ESPNNewYork took this one step further, saying that not only did Ewing turn down the D-League job, he was pretty ticked that’s all the franchise ever offered. One source close to Ewing said the Hall of Famer felt a bit slighted by the Knicks’ offer to coach the Erie Bayhawks because he…

  2. Inside ‘Dream Team': A Conversation with Jack McCallum

    1992-dreamteam

    There exist books on most every subject written from most every angle imaginable. There are do-it-yourself guides to construct your vessel to the afterlife. There is a definitive handbook on colloquial speech on the high seas. There are memoirs filled with irredeemable drivel, helpful travel guides written in anapestic tetrameter, and dizzying, sprawling novels drowned…

    When he first took the job, new Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey called interim Portland coach Kaleb Canales the “in-house favorite” for the job. That was just Olshey being polite. The reality is the search is wide open and Canales should be polishing his resume. Here is what Olshey told the Columbian. Olshey didn’t…

    May 17, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Mr. Ewing, Mr. Cho will see you now. We knew that Patrick Ewing, and Orlando Magic assistant coach, was among the number of good young coaches going to interview for the vacant Charlotte Bobcats coaching gig. Turns out, Ewing is up on Thursday, according to the AP. So far the Bobcats also have interviewed Mike…

  5. LeBron thinks London Olympic team compares to Dream Team, too

    Jan 3, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA is not backing away from filling the big shoes. Last week USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said he thought the upcoming USA Olympic team was a “fair comparison” with the 1992 Dream team that featured Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and others. LeBron James thinks Colangelo is right,…

  6. Video history lesson: Top 10 plays from Patrick Ewing

    Nov 2, 2011, 9:29 PM EDT

    Alonzo Mourning, Patrick Ewing

    We’ve been running a Friday Nights Video segment to get you flowing into the weekend here at PBT, but we stumbled across this today and thought it couldn’t wait. In case you forgot how athletic Patrick Ewing was, or how he balled at both ends of the court, here is the video proof. Has to…

  7. Video: NBA stars head to Africa for Basketball without Borders

    Sep 19, 2011, 9:06 AM EDT

    Dikembe Mutombo Africa

    Growing basketball — and in the NBA’s eyes it’s brand of basketball — in Africa is rife with challenges. But for a decade now the NBA has been trying through its Basketball Without Borders program. Trying to find something through sport that can help unite people all over the continent that has been ravaged by…

  8. Winderman: Former Georgetown brawlers Ewing, Mourning unite for South Africa

    Aug 23, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    Alonzo Mourning, Patrick Ewing

    The enduring memory of Alonzo Mourning and Patrick Ewing is of Georgetown alums who didn’t allow their Hoya loyalties to get in the way of a healthy scrum. See: Heat-Knicks, circa late-’90s. Yet Tuesday, as the two spoke on an NBA-arranged conference call to detail their participation, along with fellow former Hoya Dikembe Mutombo, on…

  9. Video: NBA 2K12 trailer, where you can be Charles Oakley

    Aug 22, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    nba2k12

    It’s the video game player you have been praying to unlock forever — you can have a team with Charles Oakley. Or Dikembe Mutombo. There is also Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson and so many more of the game’s greats in the new trailer for NBA 2K12. But what is really intriguing…

  10. Patrick Ewing: “I still consider myself a Knick”

    Aug 11, 2011, 11:20 AM EDT

    NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Patrick Ewing — currently a Magic assistant coach — wants a head coaching job. He’s had a few interviews (most recently with the Pistons) but has yet to win the gig. But is dream job? That is with the New York Knicks, he said on the Mike Lupica show on ESPN New York. “I hope…

  11. RetroBall: Knicks-Pacers ’95, the night of the finger roll

    Jul 25, 2011, 4:24 PM EDT

    Since billionaire owners and millionaire players are bitterly divided over how much money they’ll be splitting over the coming years and have locked us out of actual basketball to talk about, PBT will be regaling you this summer  with RetroBall. Using the advanced powers of the internet and NBATV, we’ll bring you interesting stories from years gone…

  12. Pistons bring in Mike Woodson for second interview

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:18 PM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Detroit fans want Bill Laimbeer, and other names have been mentioned, but former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson has always been the frontrunner to be the next coach of the Detroit Pistons. Thursday Woodson will be brought in for a second interview with Pistons management, the first guy to get one, according to the Detroit Free…

  13. Report: Former Knicks president Checketts advising Pistons

    Jun 27, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Dave Checketts was the New York Knicks president the last time they were good — back when the Knicks were built around Patrick Ewing and they were flirting with a title (they never got), Checkets was steering the ship. Now he is advising Tom Gores, the new Detroit Pistons owner, according to Marc Stein at…

  14. Patrick Ewing to interview for Pistons head coaching job

    Jun 24, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Up until now, Kim Hughes — the interim coach with the Los Angeles Clippers before Vinny Del Negro was hired — was the tallest NBA coach I remember seeing. A former NBA player, he is a legit 6’10’. But if the Detroit Pistons hire Orlando assistant Patrick Ewing, all bets are off. And Ewing will…

  15. “Go New York Go” 2011 vs. 1994

    Apr 19, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS

    We bring a brief musical interlude to your day. Somehow, “Go New York Go” has become sort of a Knicks anthem despite being pretty much a musical marshmallow. As opposed to Los Angeles, which uses the very sarcastic Randy Newman “I Love L.A.” as a theme song (for the record, nobody loves Victory Boulevard), but…

  16. Patrick Ewing may get his head coaching shot in Charlotte

    Dec 31, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Right next to Paul Silas’ name as the head coach in Charlotte is the word “interim.” And so long as that is there the speculation on who gets the job full time will take place. Clearly, Silas gets first crack. Turn the ship around enough this season and he gets to stay on as captain.…

  17. A look back at a goofier, meaner Knicks

    Sep 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    NBA Tumblr Fat Shawn Kemp posted this video this morning, and as it harkens back to the days of the NBA on NBC, features a truly vicious Knicks team in a completely goofy way, and Danny Aiello, I thought it might bring some joy to you heart. After all, how much would you give to…

  18. Oh yes, Scottie Pippen could dunk

    Aug 5, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    Fun little trip down memory lane courtesy NBATV, some highlight dunks of Scottie Pippen. Over Patrick Ewing, over Charles Barkley, over anyone and everyone who got in his way. Pippen continues to get cast as simply Jordan’s sidekick, but Pippen could flat out ball.

  19. What can we really expect from Shaq this year?

    Aug 1, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal is still looking for a team. August has arrived, and the FMD (Former Most Dominant) is unemployed. It seems reasonable that Shaq would be towards the end of the free agent acquisitions. He’s in the awkward cross-section of expensive and old, both of which are in the short list of words that make…
