With no Nike deal, I do it, a beast in the paint like Pat Ewing
Pat or Patrick Ewing is a Jamaican-American retired Hall of Fame basketball player. He was selected as one of the top 50 greatest basketball players of all time.
Most all stars are signed to a certain brand (Ex: Nike, Jordan, Adidas, etc..). But Ewing started his own brand so he never needed a deal.
Roddy is saying that he’ll do it like Patrick. He doesn’t need a Nike deal to just do it.
