Zion reallys growing on me.

Can he be a better version of draymond green??

I think so.

Frank-Knox-zion-kp-mrob i like it.


Doesn't have the passing or defensive IQ that Green has. You're not on the right path with that comparison. If you want someone to compare him to, think of a more athletic / aggressive Randle without the passing.

Zions size and vertical make him an intriguing front court player to go with KP and Knox.
Way too early for this though

Id love to say Ive heard good things about his jumper and this video is a great sign. But I havent heard great things and this video was just set shots where his feet barely leave the ground. The dude's jumper is a long long long long ways away.

Also not for nothing the Knicks could just sign Randle in 2019 and probably have enough money left over to keep Mario if he plays well.....

My Dream is that they pick up Cam. He has this PG feel to his game, while Knox has a Danny Granger feel to him as well. Imagine getting a set of wings like that in their prime :o

Though I agree with this...can't you just see Atlanta being thirsty to get "their" version of Draymond after drafting "their" version of Steph this year :lol:

I'd prefer Little or Sekou, but I've warmed up to Reddish if we can't get one of those two.

I think the way the draft is going to go most teams are going to say the reverse in that they prefer Reddish but have warmed up to Little or Sekou.

Regardless I hope the knicks get a pick to make that decision. Its been over 30 years since they moved up in the draft. They deserve a little luck.

That was due to bad scouting from the rest of the league. That success was based more on the Knicks FO hard work and preparation. Props to them, but I want lotto luck!

You add a Cam Reddish or RJ to our young core and we got something special.

I hope so, but I'm pretty sure that if the draft was today Little would go top 3...top 2 if Anthony doesn't reclassify...and I'd take him over Barrett; who's too mechanical for me. Teams are going to see Kawhi 2.0 in Nassir with that amazing perimeter D, exceptional length & athleticism, smooth jumper, and the way he comes up big in big games.

Doumbouya might not get the PT in France to build huge hype, but he doesn't have any big question marks about his game like Reddish does. Sekou's basically a more powerfully built Knox with more advanced playmaking.

Whereas Reddish has those motor questions to answer...plus with Barrett & Zion going to Duke to, he could have a really hard time asserting himself. That's why I'm thinking Cam is the most like of this trio to slip out of the top 5 for us, if our kids over-achieve & we don't get any lotto-luck.

Not sure how bad we really are. A lot depends on when KP comes back. How much does Frank improve? Do Knox and/or Mitch have any immediate impact? What does Hezonja bring? Burke? Timmy? Mudiay? Kanter? Etc etc. What can Fiz and friends do?

Atlanta will most likely have the worst record. After that I don't know. What teams are in the tank brigade? Brooklyn? Orlando? We could be top 5 bad. Then we have to nail the pick.

I can't wait to see what we have this year. Who knows what's going to happen. I'm going to enjoy watching kids develop. The more we have that stick...the better we should be. The tank is not on my mind at all. We should lose just on having so many projects naturally. Inexperience. New coach and all that brings. The better the coach and his staff...the better the team. I will except the W/L record and the draft position. It will be a product of coaching and talent developing. That's all I can ask for after 18 years of misery.

Is he even gunna play in college? He's the top recruit in the country & isn't even looking at schools now. I've got a feel we'll see him reclassify for the 2019 draft to take advantage of the weak PG class.

23 minutes per game overseas last year. As for the comp, nope. He absolutely has question marks about his game. Trust me, I've seen them and watched every Synergy clip on him there was.
