"I hope that one day I get to come back home because I do live in this area, I still consider this my area, I still consider myself a Knick. Hopefully one day I?ll be brought back here," Ewing, the Knicks' career scoring leader, said in response to a question from Lupica.Now I have to be fair here. No one is a bigger fan or defends the big fella as much as yours truly. That said, I talked to several people familiar with Ewing's situation in Orlando and there are questions about his preparation during practices and a lot of that talk is the reasoning behind him not getting head coaching interviews from what I understand.
When asked about the lack of big men as head coaches in the NBA, Ewing said: "If you look at most of the guys who have gotten the jobs, most of them have been guards. Very few big guys have gotten the opportunity."
