US Naturalized Citizen of the Day- Patrick Ewing
Patrick Aloysius Ewing was born August 5, 1962 in Kingston Jamaica. He was descibed as a Warrior. That is the one-word description often applied to Patrick Ewing. He was indefatigable and relentless in pursuit of an NBA championship despite being denied on an annual basis. Bold predictions did not always materialize and some took them as empty promises, while others as a will to succeed. One of the finest shooting centers to play, he left the game as the New York Knicks' all-time leader in nearly every significant category and the game's 13th all-time scorer with 24,815 points.
