Diehard Knicks fans will remember the last time the franchise was awarded the first overall pick in the NBA Draft.
So is Patrick Ewing, the man they took with the infamous pick in the year's first Draft Lottery, going to be there when New York prays they land that pick again? He wouldn't say so, but he hinted that may happen.
"There's a secret that's going to come out in a couple of weeks, but I'm not going to say it yet," Ewing told 247Sports. "They'll see when it happens."
Maybe Ewing will be the Knicks' good luck charm to land PF Zion Williamson, who is expected to go to whoever gets the No. 1 pick. Back in 1985, Ewing was that unanimous pick at No. 1, and there were conspiracy theories that said the NBA fixed the lottery to make sure the big man landed in New York.
The NBA Draft Lottery will take place on May 14, and the Knicks -- as well as the Cavaliers and Suns -- will have a 14 percent chance to land the No. 1 pick.
