    Knicks legend, Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing tests positive for coronavirus

    Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing has tested positive for the coronavirus, the school announced Friday. The Hall of Famer is under care and isolated at a local hospital


    "I want to share that I have tested positive for COVID-19. This virus is serious and should not be taken lightly," Ewing said in a statement. "I want to encourage everyone to stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Now more than ever, I want to thank the healthcare workers and everyone on the front lines. I'll be fine and we will all get through this."


    The school said Ewing is the only member of the Georgetown men's basketball program to have tested positive for the virus.


    Following his famed NBA playing career, Ewing took over as Georgetown's head coach in 2017 after spending 15 years as an assistant coach for four different NBA franchises.


    Arguably the best player in Georgetown history, Ewing led the Hoyas to their only national championship in 1984 and won Naismith Player of the Year award honors in 1985. He earned first-team All-American honors three straight years from 1983-85.


    Ewing was an 11-time NBA All-Star with the New York Knicks, averaging 22.8 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.7 blocks during his 15-year career with the Knicks, Seattle SuperSonics and Orlando Magic.


    He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008.

    If Tom Hanks and his wife can make it with no symptoms and totally be cured today, Ewing with his millions can too.. Like I said best healthcare at his disposal for the rich and famous.

    Corona gonna be an old poor man disease killer IMO in the end only.. That's it.

    Ewing Survive -950

    Die + 1150

    If he didn't start smoking crack or have to many health issues I think Patrick will be fine.. Corona attacks the lungs, I think Patrick will be find if he didn't start smoking shiiiit. If he still has his wind he's good then in other words.

    He was never lazy running up and down the court like Kareem was ..

    Had a 5 bypass in 2015. I'm out almost everyday whether I'm shopping, exercising, or at work. If the Lord is ready to take me, he'll take me.

    ya, these types of articles continue to try and push the narrative that it is a death sentence when in reality most wouldn't ever know they had it unless tested because it doesn't do shit to almost everyone walking the planet.

    "isolated at a local hospital"

    so care provided at the hospital depends on your income?

    Just like boris Johnson likely received the best care in the UK.

    Status and money matter all around the world.

    If you're famous and or rich, you'll be cared for better than anyone else. If you're not, itll be all over the 6 o clock news which the facility and caretakers do not want.

    It is fascinating how obsessed some people are with skin color and how much control is has inside your head. Literally the very fist thing you wrote when it has virtually nothing to do with this topic, nor nothing to add to it.

    Yep Jibby figured it out. It's a ghetto thing. That's why NBA legend Patrick Ewing got the virus. There is definitely a big void between Jibby's ears.

    So did he have a bad case or did he just sneeze a couple of times?

    3 day hospital stay isn't long at all.

    Maybe he just wanted to get back home for memorial day BBQ
