Patrick Ewing put the Knicks on his back every time he stepped out onto the court. He played most of his career with bad knees, but he never complained and played through it. Ask any player and they'll tell you, Ewing was a warrior. He battled Jordan's Bulls to the death and was only able to beat them when Jordan left the game the first time. Known mostly as a gritty defender, Pat added a money jumper to his game. Surprisingly, Ewing never won a DPOY award even though the defenses he anchored were consistently in the top three during his career.
