An Honest Patrick Ewing Review

Written by Juggernaut9848

FOR SOME REASON, THIS WEBSITE DOESN’T LET ME POST A REVIEW SOMETIMES UNLESS IT IS 3 STARS. THIS CARD IS 5 STARS, NOT 3

BOUGHT FOR:

  • 150 Tokens

STRENGTHS:

  • Shooting
  • Post-Scoring
  • Defense
  • Rebounding
  • Athleticism

WEAKNESSES:

  • Steal
  • Lateral Quickness

RECOMMENDED STRATEGY:

  • Post-Scoring
  • Pick & Roll
  • Pick & Pop

USE IF:

  • You want an amazing center who can do everything

DON’T USE IF:

  • There is really no downside to this card.

RECOMMENDED SHOES:

  • He really doesn’t NEED a shoe but if you want to add a 3PT shoe or a speed shoe, that would work well.

RECOMMENDED BADGES:

  • Defensive Stopper (This one is disappointing that he doesn’t even have gold when it should be on Hall of Fame)
  • Limitless Range
  • Deep Range Deadeye
  • Corner Specialist
  • Dimer
  • Pick Pocket

BOTTOM LINE:

  • Patrick Ewing is legitimately one of the best centers in the game. He can literally do anything. If you add the 6 badges I recommended, he transforms to a whole other level of godly. This card doesn’t have a single major flaw. Yes steal and lateral quickness could be higher but they are good enough. He also has fairly nice animations. If you just unlocked the pink Diamond market and are wondering which one to get, Patrick Ewing is by far the best one. In fact, I think that Patrick Ewing is the only one still worth running to be competitive. This card is a must have if you have the tokens to get him.

    Is his shot weird? I had the Pink Diamond in 2k17 and I hated his jumper lol

    Yeah, it's really bad. I haven't used this card but I've seen videos of it and have used his free agent cars, and his shot is probally the worst release in the game lol

    It’s not that bad, but not Great either. It’s sort of like a generic center release but with a twist. If you have used Hakeem or Greg oden, it’s like a slightly quicker version of their release, but kind of awkward. Probably this card’s biggest downside.

    No, it's straight up bad. He has the slowest release in the game. Oden and Hakeem both have quicker shots than this card, I have no idea what you're talking about

    Ewing has always been trash and so has his shot

    Username checks out. I was a pretty big Ewing fan, I was disappointed in the release. Card is unusable in TTO and needs like 20 ft of space to not get closed out and contested by the time you get a shot off in MTU.

    agreed

    I really don’t think the release is unusable. If you gave him an actual chance, and give him Limitless/Deep Range Deadeye, he is a really good shooter and greens a lot of shots. A lot of shots that should be heavily’s are Lightlies. Not the best release but far from the slowest. It’s not that terrible

    I agree his release isn’t that bad. It’s slow but smooth. I had his diamond in the beginning of the year, and he was straight cash from everywhere. You just can’t expect to start pulling in people’s faces, and honestly you be be anyway considering he is a dog in the paint

    I sniped my Porzingis about a week ago for 47k with a diamond 3pt shoe and contract, with all the best badges. He doesn’t miss.

    Yea ik his cards good but I’m a Knicks fan...I actually had his amethyst when he requested a trade and I quicksold his card :P

    I mean you can’t blame him for wanting out of NY

    0

    Nah of course I can. We gave this man nothing but love while he was in NY, and he turned his back on us. This clown was really mad that our record sucked because we were TANKING because HE was hurt. We finally got a competent front office and he desires to bail on us. We NY man, we got the luxury of being able to free agents because of the big market and we are gonna end up with a good pick in this years draft. We got a couple young guys with a lot of potential. We made him the face of the franchise, the guy we were gonna build around and he just leaves. Fuck KP and bitch ass brothers too. But fuck him though, if he don’t wanna be here, we don’t want his snake ass. Sorry had to vent

    I did the same thing coming from a fellow Knicks fan as well

    do you know if it is possible to give him slashing or post scoring takeover?

    1

    I’m not sure. Haven’t tested with any shoes yet.

    ah, ok good review btw

    0

    what's his release like?

    1

    Not that great. Probably this card’s biggest downside. Like an awkward, slightly faster version of the Hakeem/Greg oden release.

    1

    Faster than Hakeem? Yeah that ain't it chief

    0

    in freestyle it felt faster but now that ive used him in unlimited he is jumpshot is unusable

    0

    That's a shame. I wanted to get him but will probably pick Grant Hill instead

    0

    Yeah I definitely would get him first. I’m my opinion none of the pink diamond rewards are that great, but grant hill is definitely the best.

    0

    nice review ;) just got him as my 2nd pink diamond reward (1st one was timmy but Patrick wasnt in token reward when i choose tim).
