nba knicks teenager 1990s presentation

We have one ritual in my new job.

Every other Friday afternoon, one of us has to present a non-work related topic of its interest (usually 10-15 minutes). There is no limitation for that and we can cover whatever we want. The only detail is we usually bring a couple of nerf guns so things can get crazy in one way of the other. Anyway, it’s really good fun.

I recycled an old presentation for my first round so no big surprises there (it’s also a subject I covered so many times in my previous jobs).

However, for my 2nd round, I wanted to be bit more creative. I ended up picking the 1990s NBA, some of the rivalries during that era, the dramatic Cinderella run of New York Knicks in 1999 and the Ewing Theory that followed.

I’m not a sport analyst, but I tried to put some very limited understanding and my basic intepretation so apologize for any approximation. Also please bear in mind this was a 15 minutes presentation long for most of completely NBA ignorant people.

It was lots of fun though so I figure out I’d put my slides here too (and also trying to keep the bi-weekly blog post rythm).
