“This is some real s—,” Klempner says as he continues to rifle through the foot-high stack, flinging contracts and letters signed by the likes of George Gervin, Larry Bird and LeBron James. Some papers have historical significance: docs connected to the league’s first collective bargaining agreement, salary cap and drug program, plus records from lockouts and lawsuits past. A manila folder emerges with a JOHNSON MAGIC sticker attached. Other pieces veer towards esoterica. There is a stack of signatures from players who came together to protest the changing of the regulation basketball in 2006. A collection of 1990s Knicks stars—Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Latrell Sprewell—signed a sheet to verify they’d received 1099s. On top of it is a hot pink sticky note, addressed to Klempner and signed by Chris Dudley, who wrote, “Didn’t realize I still had these… Hope it didn’t cause too much of a problem.”
“I’m rooting for Coach Popovich and the U.S. Team,’’ Ewing told The Post in an emailed interview. “It’s an unfortunate time we’re living in right now — losing players to COVID-19 protocols. It’s harder to play now because of the Dream Team. All of the current players grew up looking up to us and watching us dominate the rest of the world.

Wanna have the same Olympic gold medal as Michael Jordan?! A player from the Team USA hoops squad in 1984 is parting ways with their memento … and it can be yours if you have a huge chunk of change lying around!!

The 11-time All-Star appeared on The Post’s “Big Apple Buckets” podcast this week and discussed an array of topics, revealing he “broke down” on the team bus when forced to sit out the Knicks’ five-game loss to the San Antonio Spurs in the ’99 Finals due to an Achilles injury he suffered earlier in the postseason. “It definitely would have been a tougher series for them [if I was healthy],” Ewing said. “Marcus [Camby] and myself would have been a formidable duo to go against both Tim [Duncan] and David [Robinson], but that was tough because to have to sit there and listen to all the noise that those fans were talking about, it was hard to take. I actually broke down.
