Patrick Ewing bothered by Knicks not calling him
Patrick Ewing spoke to his old coach, John Thompson, on TNT Saturday about the vacant Knicks job and the team's apparent lack of interest in him. Patrick is unamused.
Ewing on whether or not he wanted to be considered for the New York Knicks head coaching position: Definitely. Obviously I played in New York, I know the area, I know the team, I know the fans, I know everybody. I know the media. So naturally I would have loved to interview.
Ewing on being contacted about the Knicks coaching job: No, no ones contacted me It did (bother me), but I guess thats life. Im in a great situation here in Orlando working with (Dwight Howard). If it doesnt happen it doesnt happen. But yes, it did bother me.
