Before becoming a professional, Patrick dominated the collegiate ranks and wound up going to New York as the top pick in the 1985 draft. The most revered and beloved player in New York history, Patrick was voted as one of the 50 greatest players of all time and his career accomplishments read as such. They include 1986 Rookie of the Year, 11 time All-Star, two time Olympic Gold Medalist (1984 and 1992) and finally, being voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. In the 2000's as the Internet Age dawned, there became a huge online cult following and demand increased for vintage Ewing shoes from all over the world and in 2012 Patrick relaunched Ewing Athletics to great success. Years later we are still here continuing the relaunch and keeping the first independent basketball brand going strong.
