      I told him first. I really didn’t want him finding out in some heartless way. So fragile.

      It’s time like this that bring us closer together.

      “Forwards, who needs them?”

    Must be either he didn’t show up in great shape or in a great state of mind or, more likely, someone from the D-League really caught their eye. So let the speculation begin! Who could that be?

    Former Dukie Lance Thomas who put some D-League polish on top of all of his four years at Duke polish? He certainly came from a college program with values our San Antonio front office wants in their players.

    Someone else who has already caught the staff’s eye in a short period of time? Any guesses?

    Patrick Ewing Jr graduated from Georgetown University not Indiana University. He transferred from IU after his sophomore year. Please rectify this mistake.

      That’s a Hornets Press Release and it’s not a mistake, they just didn’t choose to include that fact, along with 1,000 others. I tend to think of him as a Hoya as well, as does his jersey there. But where did he come from before Georgetown? Indiana.

        Just correct the posting. He is a Georgetown Product. No one should care where is first school was. If a similar article comes to press down the road pertaining to say … Dahntay Jones are you telling me you are going to have the article read Rutgers University product???

        Ewing is a Hoya!! Print it!!

        Agreed. Not my place to cchange the copy of ot

        hers. I even did the research before publishing it.

    2.7 average minutes…. 7 games all last season…. I mean it didnt shpwhe was completely useless in the very little time he had to play… But his worth ethic must not have been anywhere at his fathers level in practice for them to not even give him much of a chance during show time.
