HoopsHype Patrick Ewing Jr rumors

July 9, 2013 Updates

Some West Virginia basketball fans learned as much when they constantly badgered Ewing, Jr., while he played for Georgetown. “The whole pregame they were heckling me and heckling me. I blocked a shot to win that game,’’ said the 6-8 Ewing, on the Charlotte Bobcats’ summer-league roster. “My favorite part of the game was me waving at the guys who heckled at me, ‘Goodbye!’’ as I’m running off the court.’’ It was hard growing up with that name, particularly when he made basketball his sport, too. But he’s better for the experience. “I had to live up to an expectation, something unrealistic, but something for me to stride for,’’ said Patrick, Jr., who played for Indiana before transferring to his father’s alma mater. “It wasn’t easy, but it made me push myself harder than I would have.’’ Raleigh News & Observer

This isn’t the first time they’ve been in this situation: Ewing, Jr., played for the Orlando Magic summer team in 2010 when his father coached there, too. “I curse him when he needs it and pat him on the back when he needs it, same as any player,’’ said Patrick, Sr. “But the emotion is always going to be there. You want the best for him.’’ Patrick, Jr., was a second-round pick of the Sacramento Kings in the 2008 draft. He’s bounced around the Development League and European basketball, looking to get back to the NBA. His longest NBA experience was in the winter and spring of the 2010-11 season, filling in for the injured David West as a New Orleans Hornet. Raleigh News & Observer

Forward Patrick Ewing Jr. has demonstrated his competitive nature as the teams leading scorer (63) and rebounder (27). Ewing says he “always played with a lot of intensity,” and his emotion has shown over the course of three games, as he nearly never sits down while he’s on the bench and it seems he has something to say after nearly every play. “My teammates sometimes will make fun of me because I listen to R and B and gospel before games to calm myself down,” Ewing said. “They’re like, ‘why don’t you listen to some hip-hop or something,’ but I’d have five fouls in like two minutes if I did.” Examiner
