Kevin Durant is going to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, along with Kyrie Irving and Durant’s tagalong pal, Deandre Jordan. So now that Plan A (also known as “The plan where the GM really doesn’t have to do anything except let the star player choose his team”) has flopped, we get to finally see what kind of GM Scott Perry is. If he signs a bunch of one-year deals, he’s probably just another dumb Knick decision-maker (just not as dumb as Phil Jackson, who was the worst). If he doesn’t, then the Knicks might finally have a good GM. Let …continue reading
By Kyle Boone The New York Knicks have selected Duke one-and-done star RJ Barrett with the No. 3 overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft. As a freshman last season, Barrett led the Blue Devils in scoring and set a new ACC freshman scoring record with 860 total points while averaging 22.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. Barrett had long been linked to the Knicks when the lottery was sorted out in May, so Barrett falling to No. 3 was not a surprise. Initially, his teammate, Zion Williamson, was considered to be the target for New York going into …continue reading
Woj tweeted out the results for the All-Rookie Team! Wow, the first five picks all made the first team of the All-Rookie team! That must be the first time that that has ever happened, right? Mitch should be first team, but hey, better than not being on the team at all! How grainy is that photo? Weird to see Woj tweet out such a grainy photo.
I am a big Patrick Ewing fan and I am thrilled that he is the Knicks’ representative tonight. I am such a Ewing fan that I held off on “Can Patrick Ewing finally win something for the Knicks?” as the title of this thread. Anyways, here we are, twenty minutes away from the start of perhaps the most important Draft Lottery in the Knicks’ history. Let’s go, Knicks!
In case you happen to check out Knickerblogger, I thought it’d be fun to show you what posters here had to say when you were drafted last June. People were very much into you from the start. Frank had some pre-pick thoughts… There really are some interesting names left. 9 picks left. I’d be super happy with: Frazier Okobo Melton Jacob Evans KBD Mitchell robinson Khyri Thomas Bruce Brown Justin Jackson Silky Johnson, Fleet Admiral of the Tank Armada announced the pick… Mitchell Robinson, not Deanthony Melton….. The reactions began… Frank Mitchell Robinson? I can roll with that. Brian Cronin …continue reading
Wow, what a get by the Knicks! Here is the list of representatives that the Knicks have had over the years for the Draft Lottery. Lots of uninspired choices over the years (and some really good ones, like Walt Frazier in 2017 and Reggie Jackson joining Houston in 2009)… Dave DeBusschere (1985) Scott Stirling (1986) Scott Layden (2002) Allan Houston (2003) John Starks (2005) Mike D’Antoni (2008) Allan Houston and Reggie Jackson (2009) Steve Mills (2015) Walt Frazier (2017) Scott Perry (2018) So this is a big get for the Knicks. It obviously doesn’t really matter, but it’s still nice! …continue reading
I thought this might be a fun thing to do… Warriors vs. Clippers Nuggets vs. Spurs Blazers vs. Thunder Rockets vs Jazz Since the polls don’t track who voted for what, feel free to make a comment, as well, to take credit for your predictions. The site seems to have problems with too much script, so I split the conferences up.
