Was such a thrill when we had Patrick Ewing on #TheJump a couple weeks ago - now he's in the hospital with COVID. This virus moves quickly and mercilessly. Please be safe out there, everyone. pic.twitter.com/BPVUhGlrU6— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 22, 2020
Patrick Ewing is my favorite athlete of all time. Here I am with him in 1982 at my brother's Georgetown graduation. I was 8. Pat had just finished his freshman year.— John Biemer (@john_biemer) May 23, 2020
