NBA legend Patrick Ewing admitted he wanted the Golden State Warriors to pick him in the 1985 NBA Draft.
Instead, Ewing was selected first overall by the New York Knicks.
“We were all there watching and waiting. First I wanted to go to Golden State because Eric Floyd played there and he was a teammate of mine at Georgetown.
And the next one was the Knicks. Once Golden State didn’t win, I definitely wanted to go to the Knicks,” Ewing said on SiriusXM NBA Radio, via Bleacher Report.
Ewing spent 15 years in New York, making the playoffs 13 straight years and reaching the NBA Finals twice in the 1990s.
