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!
What I don’t get is that the NBA wouldn’t let the Knicks have Spike Lee represent them back in 2009, because he didn’t work for the Knicks, but…huh? Don’t we see the kids of owners all the time? It must be that they changed that rule. Anyhow, good news either way.
