      Nice final. I think it’s good news for the Knicks that the Spurs were able to be so competitive. The Knicks are, I think, basically as good as the Spurs. The Spurs, to me, are in a second tier type class that includes the Pacers, Thunder, Knicks, and Grizzlies. I thought all along that MIA’s true competition was the show time Lakers, etc. I thought they might might be “fo, fo, fo (fo)”.

      Smarter folks than me might point out how the Spurs are truly in another class than the Knicks but to me this series, and a little less the IND series, was proof that a well coached, balanced team could make some noise against a top heavy big three type show.

      Kind of gives you hope that if NYK improves somewhat they might get me my championship in this era.

      Uhhh NO. We don’t need that kinda baggage. I’d rather have Shump’s Georgia Tech buddy Gani Lawal brought in from overseas.

      I’d be very happy if Jaamal Franklin slipped to Knicks @24 and JR Bricks left.

      Draft Express has Franklin slipping to Knicks:

      I’d also be satisfied if Knicks took Mike Muscala @24 and tried to steal Erick Green, Nate Wolters, Isaiah Canaan or Pierre Jackson in the 2nd round.

      I also wouldn’t mind if Knicks took Ricardo Ledo @24 and tried to steal Mike Muscala or Jackie Carmichael (PF) in the 2nd round.

    3. Brian Cronin

      Such plans would be better if the Knicks had a second round pick. ;)

      The only second round pick the Knicks have the next few years is a 2014 they acquired from OKC for Ronnie Brewer.

      Jamaal Franklin isn’t gonna make it in the NBA. He’s a 6’5″ SG with poor scoring efficiency and turnover problems. DO NOT WANT

      one major problem with this is that Woodson has shown himself to be a lousy playoff coach, and Popovich is probably the best coach in the league.

      I’ve come back around to wanting Crabbe. Three point shooting is so important, and Crabbe is the best pure shooter in the draft. He’s also a good athlete that plays pretty good man D.
      I think the finals showed us how important outside shooting and efficiency can be.

    7. massive

      Ehh, I think the best pure shooter in the draft is Reggie Bullock. He shot and made more 3s and played in a tougher conference. He might be gone to Brooklyn before we pick, though. I actually think Bullock is a perfect fit there.

      Crabbe is a good player, but I’d rather have a couple guys over him. 3 point shooting is easier to find in this league than a good big or a point guard. I’d prioritize shooting last.

      Right, I think that may be the major difference between the Spurs and Knicks. Pop, and the fact that everyone buys into Pops system. The Knicks have similar talent, maybe even better talent at the top of their roster with the SAS big three now having some miles on them.
