Hate Hard Now, But Appreciate The Greats Later

Tim Branch Standard 0 Comments

As an NBA fan since 1980, I always hated Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. Why did I hate three of the game’s best players of all time? Each of these NBA stars caused me great pain as a Philadelphia 76ers and Julius Erving fan. The guy was my hoop idol and these guys got in his way; Kareem’s unstoppable skyhook, Magic’s rookie NBA Finals performance, and Larry Bird’s jump shooting all destroyed …

The Knicks’ Best-Case Scenario On Draft Day

Alex Lessard Standard 0 Comments

For the Knicks, any good outcome at the NBA Draft on June 22 involves acquiring as many picks as possible. The group Derrick Rose called a “superteam” last offseason finished with one of the worst records in the league, and New York needs as many young bodies as possible to spark a rebuild.

The Knicks Should Move Down In The Draft and Take Donovan Mitchell

Max Urbahn Standard 0 Comments

Donovan Mitchell is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard that took his game to another level this season at Louisville. He averaged 15.6 points, 2.7 assists, 4.9 rebounds and shot 35 percent from 3. His coach, Rick Pitino, said that Mitchell was one of the best rebounding guards he’s ever had — his wingspan measures in at a ridiculous 6-foot-10. Mitchell is incredibly underrated, likely because he’s not a player that went one-and-done. He stayed a year at Louisville to work on his …

If they do, how would he fit with other pieces on the roster? First off, Rubio would immediately plug a huge hole in the roster at the point guard position.

His article mentions the Knicks interest in the Blazers’ No. 15, 20 and 26 picks. Additionally, rumors say that Portland could possibly send another player alongside a pick in a trade.

The reason Teams are Tanking

   Scouting Analysis: The Top Point Guards By. Daniel M. As most of you Knicks fans know it is highly unlikely that the Knicks land a top 3 pick. However, that being said I feel it is important to always be prepared. The Lottery system guarantees nothing in this league and that means there is potential to move up.
