New Charlotte Bobcats assistant coach Patrick Ewing joined the show to talk about getting a new job and more.

Ewing said that he didn’t talk to Michael Jordan directly about the job before he got it. Ewing said Jordan stayed out of it.

Ewing said that he will say “no” to Jordan. “[Head coach] Steve Clifford will do all the parlaying with Michael,” Ewing said. “When I parlay with Michael it will be on a friendship basis.”

Ewing said he was surprised that Jason Kidd got a head-coaching job so quickly. “I was very surprised they gave it to him so early,” Ewing said. “I wish him well and nothing but success. … I was very shocked.”

He thinks that he’ll need assistants who help make up for his shortcomings, which is always how it works with a support staff.

Ewing also told a story about why he chose Georgetown over UCLA and North Carolina. He said that the KKK presence near North Carolina bothered him.
