During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, LeBron James revealed that, before the end of his career, he would like to play on the same team as Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul. During an interview with ESPN’s Hannah Storm yesterday, Patrick Ewing was asked if he ever would have considered trying to do the same thing—Storm threw out the names Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird—and he revealed that it wouldn’t have interested him. In his mind, the rivalries that he had with those three guys would have made it difficult for him to team up with one or all of them.

“Probably not because we have so much of a great rivalry going against one another,” he said. “Larry with his trash talking. Magic also with trash talking, also a great player. To win a championship, a lot of people are willing to do that.”

Ewing also said that he doesn’t see LeBron’s dream of playing with his three BFFs ever coming true.

“He befriended them or whatever you want to call it, that’s his prerogative,” he said. “Even if he wants and thinks that he could play with those guys, I don’t see it happening. We all have dreams, and that’s his dream.”
