ANALYSIS: You know what they say: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Ewing could never lift the Knicks to a title during Jordan's reign so he's agreed to work for him.
We wonder how the Knicks feel about this move. Ewing attended a ton of Knicks games last season and even sat next to owner James Dolan during one of them, fueling speculation that the Knicks were thinking of offering Ewing a job.
Ewing turned down the opportunity to coach the Knicks' D-League team, the Erie BayHawks, last summer. According to a league source, he still desires a head coaching gig in the NBA. The Bobcats' job under first-year coach Clifford is a good step toward that goal.
