Yup

That's why Ainge is a genius. Why give up the pick for a guy like Butler or Paul George when you can draft a stud like Jackson and still have enough cap space in the summer to go after a mega max free agent

Why? Don't their fans think it will be fultz? Do you see Jackson as the #1 or just best fit for Boston? Jaylen Brown and Jackson would be a tough 2/3 combo to cover. Both being able to play both spots themselves.

This franchise may or may not be mentally challenged.


KP has said this multiple times now.. how he could tell the team wouldn't be good from the beginning. He seems so disgusted with the whole situation. This was supposed to be a huge year for his career and for the Knicks, and I know he feels like he didn't get a fair chance to be that guy.

But man, I love KP and I love the way he speaks and I love the determination he has. He said he's learning how to be a leader which is great to hear. Hang in there, Zinger!

Ture knicks fans would be jumping up and down if Knicks somehow lost all the remaining games and ended up in top 3 draft position...


Could you imagine pairing Porzingis with either Ball/Fultz/Jackson...? :D :D :D :D

Because George and Butler are proven players, would fit in with the rest of the team's timeline well, and max free agents aren't switching teams anyways

It wasn't common sense to all the people that were putting pressure on Ainge to deal the pick for one of those star players that was on the market. They made it seem as if he had to do it in order to take his team to the next level. Ainge is a genius because he's not chasing the Cavs or Warriors even though a lot of people felt like he should because they don't think the Celtics are winning in the playoffs. Although that may be true and Celtics don't look like a team that is going to make a lot of noise in the post season, Ainge has remained calm and hasn't made any panic moves to sacrifice the future of his team even though he easily could have.

So what? They got the best chance of landing him. Much better chance of them winning the lotto than them winning a title with Butler or PG.
