It's too much to hope that Josh Jackson falls to the Knicks right?

JJ and Ball go 2 or 3. I think Tatum 4. So at 5 let's get DSJ. Finally have a spark plug, scoring point.

I can't pretend to know a whole lot. I barely watch college ball, but I have been following much more closely the last month. Are we really sure Fultz is going before both of those guys? Clearly a very talented kid, but both Ball and Jackson are proving to be big time players on a big time stage. I can't imagine Fultz maintaining that 1st overall status unless he blows people away pre-draft. The tournament is doing wonders for good players on good teams..

I'm not giving up hope til the bitter end. Just thank our lucky stars the Knicks are even in a reasonable position to get lucky in the lottery.

In hindsight, I'm so glad the team crumbled this year even though I was so excited after the Rose trade. Why delay the inevitable? This was a great year to tank, and I can't imagine how terrible we'd all feel watching the Knicks get bounced quickly in the first round while Boston and LA each land another huge piece.

Please, basketball gods. Please bless us just once more. KP needs a buddy.

I don't think he is a given at 1. Seems likely.

Tatum nearly killed himself there. Good pro baseline drive.

You can see Tatum has no real instincts for loose balls or anything much besides on ball D or scoring. He must idolize Melo.

I'm a biased UK fan but I want Fox and think he could be Westbrook lite

yeah i agree he look totally uninterested in defense and box out. like he's coasting which is disappointing. so far bridges looks like a better all round player for knicks.
Draft Justin Jackson or Frank Ntilikina!!

Absolutely the tournament has helped.
Both Fox and Monk shined today. Fox was the consummate point guard, played non stop defense and showed serious hops on a couple of dunks.

Monk with an impressive block of a 3 point shot late, key free throws and a jumper. Wouldn't be mad if he comes here.

Issacs looked real fluid and active yesterday and reminds me alot of Rip Hamilton.

Fultz has that easy game, like he's not even trying hard. Right now he possibly has another level to go to.

As you mentioned in another post, the Knicks picked a great year to be in the lottery.

I'm not digging Monk, but Fox seems to be a nice player. Monk is everything we don't need in a point guard and he's undersized to be a SG in the NBA which is his position. I just don't see that GO GET Em in his play to be a top 6th/ 7th pick. I don't see a Curry, Harden, Westbrook, Beal, Thompson, or Burks. I see a Seth Curry, Rivers, B. Jennings........

Cincinnati players are trying their hardest to find whomever Ball is guarding trying to get him in foul trouble. :rofl:

I see Ball and I see a dominant college player but a guy who's game might not translate to pro level.

I think it'll translate, but I don't think he's going to be a generational talent like he's being hyped as. His playmaking and length alone make him bust proof.

There's a big range there though.

Ball, at worst, will be a good floor general

If he's just a good player at #2 that's a slight bust.
