Smh.. Kendall Williams is nice, Tony Snell can get hot. Like Hugh Greenwood too, he doesn’t do anything flashy but he steady’s their team. Alex Kirk has improved also.

That South Dakota team just got destroyed by Belmont by close to 30 the game before, but they will probably be a tourney team. That Nate Walters kid can play


I guess Alford had to stay true to team policy and benched Williams and Adams.. Meh.. things get pretty festive out here for the holidays (partying).. the team looked liked it wanted to be elsewhere doing other things.

Trey Burke would be a good pick for us. Our pg's are old and Felton is Felton. I wouldn't mind having a young pg stud like Burke getting mentored by Jason Kidd.

Guys that have been on the radar for a bit now
Nemanja Nedovic- Would be an awesome chip to have overseas.
Lucas Nogueira- Still sucks offensively, but defensively he's putting it together.

If Myck Kabongo would actually declare for the draft, it would be awesome to see him fall to us. Would be exactly what this team needs long term.

Burke is going to end pretty high, top10 lock.

I don’t think he goes top 10 tbh… I think at the end of the day his lack of size (6ft in shoes) gets him in the 10-25 range

Whaaaaaaaaat?? Frontier not opened 24hrs, where are people going to go to watch a brawl after the club gets out now??

Nah in all seriousness the Frontier's Green Chile Stew late night was my hangover cure the summer I was out there

Wouldn't mind the Knicks picking up Patric Young, Jeff Withey, Phil Pressey or Kabongo. Young would be that young, athletic big that could back-up Amar'e However, I feel like he'll move up the boards during/after the combine. Withey could be a nice replacement for Chandler down the line. He's a great defensively, pretty athletic and explosive around the rim. He could learn a lot from Chandler in his first few years. Of course, Pressey and Kabongo speak for themselves. Kabongo would likely be out of our range, but who knows.

I dunno about Young moving up to much. Everyone knows how strong/athletic he is, the reason why he is so low is because his skills aren't all that appealing. He can't shoot, his post game is basic ( mostly uses a hook shot over either shoulder), until this year despite his physical tools he was never much of a shot blocker, and he isn't a great defender. (BUT if he was available at our pick I'd be fine taking him, just based on that if he improves defensively he could guard 4s and some 5s)

I forgot about Young, u're right I would be fine if we took him. Solid role player for a late 1st round pick, think his NBA comparison is like Jason Maxiell. I got a feeling the Heat will draft him, they love athleticism and small big men.

We need to draft a shooter or a dribble guard.

Canaan/Crabbe for me.

They would but I believe the Suns have the Heat pick (via Lakers from the sessions trade with the Cavs)

Tbh I want no parts of Phil Pressey… I loooove his game, but not for my team. He’s simply too small and he can’t finish at the rim. He’s shooting something like 20% in those shots. Defensively he would struggle against Nba point guards, and if he had to switch? Yikes..

Obviously his ability to create for others is appealing but I think those other things cancel that out…

What do you guys think about TJ Warren (Nc State)? Kid makes it look easy on offense..

SMDH... one loss to a scrub team for their first loss and the Lobos drop from 17 to out of the top 25...

Anyways VS 8 Cincinatti tonight on ESPN could be a good game.

Alex Kirk looks a lot quicker and in better shape. Pretty big win for them getting #8 on the road..
