The Core and the Mets vs. Patrick Ewing and the Knicks

Reading through a lot of the media drivel that's been written about the Mets over the past few weeks, is anyone else having flashbacks to the way that the media treated Patrick Ewing during his time with the Knicks? Much like, say, David Wright/Carlos Beltran/Jose Reyes, Ewing was an outstanding player who, for most of his career, was never surrounded with an adequate supporting cast, yet was consistently blamed when things didn't work out the way fans hoped they would. Like Beltran, he wasn't the most outgoing guy and didn't have the greatest relationship with the fans and/or the media, and that seemed to affect the way he was treated. Ewing was never truly appreciated after he was long gone and the fans recognized just how much of a hole he left. No real analysis here, just musing...
