Last week, former Chicago Bulls and current Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge laid out to him from Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees and Jordan challenged the entire 1992 Dream Team, plus Knicks president Phil Jackson.

Part of that historic Olympic team was former New York Knicks center and current Hornets assistant coach Patrick Ewing, who accepted and completed Jordan's challenge.

In Ewing's video and challenge, he nominated his former college coach from Georgetown, John Thompson as well as current New York Knicks and New York Rangers owner James Dolan.

Since the Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral to create awareness and donations for ALS, over $55 million has been raised from athletes, celebrities and people all around the word to help end Lou Gehrig's Disease.
