I guess that's fair... it's not that I'm against adding Tatum, but they'd have to throw in Jaylen Brown too

What are ya'll smoking? 9th pick for Giannis or Tatum??? Come on!... even if we had the 1st overall pick, those teams are unlikely to make that move

Sarcasm.

Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Typical Knicks fans always going for the starfukk, I say we hold on to the first rounder.

personally, since steph curry was picked #7 and we have #9 so we should be able to package noah and #9 for steph.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

A nice fun thread...but I'll say what we are all thinking... It is about time that we have some bloody luck in the picking of the balls... Not saying we have a shot for 1-3, but why can't we move up a couple of slots for once.

Yeah, I realize we might have lucked out in the KP draft by dropping, but aren't we due to move up at some point?

EnySpree: Can we agree to agree not to mention Phil Jackson and triangle for the rest of our lives?

The way it works, you can move into the top 3 if you get lucky or you can move down. So if you are ranked sixth, you can pick between 1-3 and then 6-9 nothing else. You can't live up to anything inbetween

You think Boston would actually do that. We would have to at minimum, take Gordon Hayward off their hands. He’s injury proneafterall. They’d require us to pay half of his salary as well.

Title odds are 200:1. So you're saying there's a chance!

I saw him in person at last years ACC tournament. I wanted him right then. Awesome talent.

Boston has tons of talent.

Yet another mistake by Dolan. When will it end?

Because Boston uses something other than PPG to evaluate talent and overall value??

Boston can control Brown and Tatum and trade one or the other at the right time to either get a finishing piece or reconstitute into picks. A proven talent is worth more than one pick.
Smart team can extend a winning era if handled correct. Sometimes you cash them in for a chip.
OKC had the pieces but did not play it correct.
Wiggins thus far has not proven worthy of his status/contract yet. Bennet was a bust and Kyrie lived up the the expectation. One out of three.
Draft is no joke. We throw around players for picks assuming we are able to draft correct.
Im not advocating we don't draft, the opposite, I advocate we continue but increase our frequency. THis takes time.

The only spots the Knicks are able to get in this draft are 1,2,3,9,10,11,12
