Put me down as against the pick. Really hoping to be proven wrong, but I thought Mikal was a layup. Feels like the Knicks overthought this one.

Make me look like a fool, Kevin.

Welcome Kevin. Wasn't my 1st choice but he's got the upside to be great, hopefully he can play with more aggression, play defense and take his game to another level in the NBA

I'm happy with this pickup. We got a really young kid with a lot of potential. Can't wait to watch him develop over the years.

Yup.

Knox isn't my guy, but I love what drafting him says about our direction.

Hopefully Fiz maximizes this kid. He'd be a fantastic stretch 4.

agreed, a lot of this is now on Fiz....he needs a lot of seasoning and Fiz better get that dog out of him and really improve his defense because with his size he should be able to impact that end.

I watched a ton of Kentucky last year, there my second team after St John's. Knox if he's allowed to be eased into his role should definitely be able score the ball with ease, but it's of utmost importance that Fizdale lights a fire under his butt. He's talented, but he far to often coasted on that. He does a good job of moving without the ball, using screens, but we're the Knicks and that typically hasn't be our MO when we get these type of guys. When Porzingis was drafted, he was excellent at scoring off screens and we barely ever run any for him.

Knox has a ton of talent, it's easy to see why he'd be a better pro than college player. Well he's ours now, so all aboard the Knox train.

High upside. I'm extremely good with this.
