Former Knicks star Patrick Ewing recently revealed that his two gold medals from the Olympics and the NCAA championship ring he won while playing for Georgetown were once stolen.
"My house got broken into in New York, and at one point they stole my medals," Ewing said on The Dan Patrick Show. "So I called Jerry Colangelo, and he was great to be able to get me two replacement medals."
Ewing won the medals playing on the original Dream Team for the United States in 1992 in Barcelona and playing for the United States in the 1984 games in Los Angeles.
When it comes to the championship ring, Ewing was able to get it back.
"They did take my college championship ring, but someone tried to sell it on eBay and I was able to get that back," Ewing said.
The 57-year-old Ewing, who is now the head coach at Georgetown, played for the Knicks from 1985 to 2000, helping guide the team to the NBA Finals in 1994 and 1999.
