Him and Frank will make for a sharp shooting unselfish back court. I made the comparison bc I am ignorant to Bagley. When someone is compared to Lamar Odom I think its a fair question, especially when im not familiar.


Well if someone made the comparison to Lamar Odom they are OFF. He is nowhere near Lamar Odom in terms of Ball Handling Ability and playmaking.


Jarred Vanderbilt is way closer to Lamar than Bagley is, and even that's not a perfect one because I think Vanderbilt is more aggressive and his vision isn't fully there (yet?).



Vanderbilt is the sleeper. Sucks he won't prob play until January. But no question he is the closest thing LO in this draft.I agree Vanderbilt is a more aggressive scorer, but his Handle and Vision is somewhat below LO.

Who would you compare him to? also opinions on Porter?



Bagley? Tough. I would have a better scope of his full game seeing him College to say who he reminds me of.He is one of those players that has a mix of a few cats in his game.


Porter? I'm not really a Fan of him. I personally would not want him on the Knicks as of right now. Like I said earlier in this thread he is the one top American prospect that will have to wow me in college to want him. What i saw from in HS does not make say oooohhh I want him. So my true opinions on him are TBD.

going to be fun watching these guys.

Doncic is not a generational talent lol Bagley is the guy I really want to pair with KP. He would allow KP to play the 5 on offense and the 4 on Defense.

I don't even know how to approach this season, should I watch or not. I want to see Frank Play and see if KP progresses, but I also hate watching ugly Knicks Basketball. Its burns like poison to me, I hate to root to lose if I am watching the action. I mean its critical we get the best pick possible since its the last year of the old rules. Im really stuck.... :lol:

Im just hoping its watchable. The first 6 minutes of preseason was exciting. This whole preseason was all over the place. Nothing is set in stone.

Bagley All Day. Best Player in the Draft Hands Down to me.


I have it Doncic #1 and bagley #2...now I wouldn't be upset with either :lol: :lol:

but if we had #1 im going Doncic having a playmaking wing that does a little of everything is exactly what we need. Having him and Frank interchangeable setting up KP in spots would be my dream. Frank makes up for some of Doncic defensive short comings as well.



I dont care what anyone says. Doncic will be suspect in the NBA on defense. Knicks Lack athletes, in an athletic NBA. I highly doubt Doncic will be the 2 on the squad. They gave Tim Hardaway all that money to be the 2. Doncic will get burned at the 3 in the NBA.


Yeah, I'm a huge Doncic fan but he is a "3" in the NBA (point forward). No way he can guard SG's with the league trending down in size. Picture Doncic guarding J'rue Holiday.
