Knicks legend, Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing tests positive for coronavirus

"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.

The NBA Hall of Famer adds.

Ewing, who won an NCAA championship in 1984 as a Georgetown player, said he wanted to thank health care workers and everyone on the front lines of the pandemic. "I'll be fine and get through this".

Ewing is under care at a local hospital, according to the school, and is the only member of the Hoyas men's basketball program to have tested positive. Ewing was a legend with the New York Knicks and was one of the greatest players of his generation. An 11-time All-Star, Ewing was known as one of the best centers of his time along with Hakeem Olajuwon (his 1994 NBA Finals matchup) and the San Antonio Spurs' David Robinson.

Patrick Ewing has tested positive for coronavirus, and is sharing his diagnosis to raise public awareness.

The 57-year-old spent over a decade coaching on various National Basketball Association teams, having served as an assistant for the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, Magic, and Charlotte Hornets before accepting a job at his alma mater, Georgetown, in 2017.

While Ewing is now in the hospital with the disease, it appears as though he is stable and is being properly isolated from other people. Under his watch, the Hoyas have combined to go 49-46 in three seasons, missing the NCAA Tournament in all three years.

In 2019-20, Georgetown finished the season with seven consecutive losses and a 15-17 record.
