Patrick Ewing Jr. is a YouTube star
Patrick Ewing Sr. may have led the Hoyas to a national championship and dominated the NBA for 17 years. As of today, though, Patrick Ewing Jr. has surpassed his father in at least one area: YouTube stardom. Ewing Jr.’s ludicrous behind-the-back dunk in the 2008 NCAA Dunk Contest wasn’t enough to win the contest, but it has received over 1,200,000 hits in just over a day, making it today’s most viewed video on YouTube. It’d be nicer to see the entire Hoya squad down in San Antonio, but I guess Hoya fans will have to accept the video as a small consolation prize as they wait for Greg “the Doctrine” Monroe and Co. to arrive next year.
