Screw LeBron James! Where will Patrick Ewing, Jr. play?

 Interesting piece in The Canadian Press about Patrick Ewing Jr's attempt to make the Orlando Magic this summer, where his father is currently an assistant.

Ewing Jr. has been one of the best players on the Magic's summer squad — that includes draft picks Daniel Orton and Stanley Robinson — but has no contract for this season. He said he won't go back to the developmental league, and would instead go to Europe or somewhere overseas if he doesn't make an NBA roster.

"He's not that far away from being an NBA player. He's shown that in the last few days," Magic general manager Otis Smith said.

His father believes he's ready for the NBA — and now.

More Ewing Jr. after The Jump: 

I still can't believe Ewing Jr. didn't make the Knicks after this display he put on in the preseason a couple of years ago (2:30 mark for the upside):

 

No wonder LeBron wants to go to Miami.

I hate the Knicks.

(Note: I reserve to change the above comment at approximately 9:10 eastern this evening)
