Why Patrick Ewing was a failure who couldn't win anything?
- 4 years agoFavorite Answer
Ewing only played in 1 finals, in '94 against one of the greatest centers ever in Hakeem. The other time the Knicks made the finals in '99, Ewing was injured. Duncan and Robinson had a field day with him out.
He also never played alongside another great player his entire career. You can count the players that have won a title w/o other great players on less than one hand. There's a lot of great players that played during the Bird/Magic/Isiah/Jordan era that won nothing.

Pat Ewing is the best center of all time never to win a championship. Dream Teamer and Hall of Famer. He was definitely NOT a failure.

He's not a failure because he didn't win a championship, he's a legend and hall of famer.

No he is not a failure, he also did not live up to his billing, he was supposed to be the next great center, and he won zero titles, zero Mvp's and was only named all NBA frrst team once, and that was kind of iffy

Never had a good enough team around him. He also made 3 Final Fours in college and won a national championship, he proved he could win when the stakes were high.
