He has a very positive attitude even though he’s been losing against me” – When Michael Jordan teased Patrick Ewing for constantly losing against him

During his reign of dominance in the NBA, Michael Jordan was a major roadblock for many stars aiming to win a championship, including Patrick Ewing, who was eliminated from the playoffs five times by Jordan’s Chicago Bulls (excluding the ‘93-94 season). While MJ consistently bested Big Pat when it mattered the most, he recognized that the New York Knicks center hated losing more than anyone,

Nevertheless, Mike trolled Ewing for having a positive attitude despite repeatedly coming up short against him.

In his interview with SLAM Magazine in 1997, right after winning his fifth Larry O’Brien trophy, the five-time MVP was asked to name the players he believed hated to lose the most. In response, Mike mentioned Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Ewing.

However, Jordan couldn’t resist trolling ‘The Big Fella,’ mocking him for having a positive attitude despite never achieving success against him.
