1986 Rookie of the Year
Compared to today's standards, there appeared to be a surplus of elite centers. The New York Knicks' Patrick Ewing was one of those elite centers, and was the last player to make the franchise relevant until Amare Stoudemire joined the team this off season.
Ewing was one of the best post players in the league for his time, and was a prolific scorer, rebounder, and defender. If not for Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, and Hakeem Olajuwon standing in his way, Ewing would have the hardware to make himself a top ten worthy player. Alas, all he has are his very impressive stats to back up a very impressive career.
Career averages: 21 ppg, 10 rpg, 2 bpg, and 2 apg.
