Patrick Ewing: I Never Had a Co-Star Like Carmelo Anthony
I see this as the convenient excuse for some of the retired superstars with no rings. They will just say they never had a “SuperFriends” team and that is the reason why they couldn’t win a Championship.
Ewing who had a strong supporting cast even if he didn’t have another superstar, weighs in on the Carmelo Anthony trade.
“A great player. A great player,” Ewing said of Anthony yesterday before the Magic beat the Knicks 116-110 last night at Amway Center. “New York hasn’t had two bona fide superstars since Willis [Reed] and Earl [Monroe] and Clyde [Frazier]. Those guys are two bona fide superstars.”
Asked who was the best player he ever played with, Ewing said, “Second-best teammate? John Starks, Allan [Houston], Spree [Latrell Sprewell], Oak [Charles Oakley]. But they’re not Carmelo. They’re not Carmelo.
You know Ewing is still salty at John Starks, for possibly costing him his best and only chance at a NBA title. With that being said he should have grab Starks by the throat (Sprewell style) and told him to stop shooting in Game 7 of 94 Finals.
