As for this thread, it's right about the impact of bad GM'ing; but curses are supernatural, juju, karma snit. The curse of crapping on Ewing will only be broken, when we recognize the importance of a great big and sign [or trade for] someone on the level of Ewing.
Im not going to go there with u .. I go way back to Ewing Freshmen yr at Georgetown, in the NCAA championship game with North Carolina, when Sleepy Floyd threw a direct pass to Worthy in the final seconds of the game for NC win.
So far Ewing and Charlie Ward were the only two drafted Knicks this organization was willing to let retire.
If u dont know the reason why Ewing DEMANDED to be traded, then ask someone...
