Michael Jordan once dunked on Ewing so ferocious that not even he could believe it. A decade after his last game in the NBA, that dunk remains MJ’s favorite. “My most memorable dunk, the one that I think about very, very often is the Patrick Ewing Dunk,” Jordan said “That’s only because Patrick and I are such great friends.” As fans of both the Bulls and Knicks remember, that iconic dunk over Ewing came at Madison Square Garden during the 1991 NBA Playoffs. With the top-seeded Bulls looking to sweep the Knicks out of the first round. “It was one where we got into a screen and roll and then I stepped back,” Jordan said, recalling how he eluded John Starks and Charles Oakley before flying along the baseline into the paint to face Ewing. “And then Patrick — I told him ‘Georgetown guys don’t block shots, all they do is take charges.’ I dunked it so hard on him it was unbelievable.” The dunk cut the Knicks’ lead to 54-52 in the final minute of the first half. Perhaps emboldened by the first half facial, Chicago would outscore New York 30-17 in the third quarter to grab control of the game. A few weeks later, Jordan would win the first of his six career NBA championships. Over his 13 seasons in Chicago, Jordan eliminated Ewing and the Knicks from the playoffs five times. That dunk would become the symbol of Jordan’s dominance of the rivalry and, apparently, Ewing still hasn’t heard the end of it. “Every time I see him that’s the first thing I remind him of,” Jordan crowed. To put that last claim in context, Ewing is currently an assistant coach with the Charlotte Hornets and Jordan, meanwhile, is the team chairman and owner. More than 23 years later, it would seem Ewing is still hearing about this play on a somewhat regular basis.
