hate would be a strong word...pretty meh on him from his college days...but yes so far in summer league Knox at 7 could have been my pick (but he went 15 so its not like people were banging down his door - you even picked troy brown over him) - now troy brown has been really good but has he been knox good
. Not writing MPjr off just yet but yes Knox with AD and Jaylen brown and lonnie walker would have a been a really nice core...
You hated the dude and its obvious. You picked Broke Back Jr over him. When you did not even want MPJ on the Knicks
Also I did not pick Troy Brown "over" him. I HAVE TWO HIGH-LEVEL WINGS ALREADY And Just Picked Bagley. Why pick Knox. Troy Brown Jr is BALLING in summer league if dont know.I need a back up play for Fultz and Brown Jr is that answer. Trust me. If I never already had Ingram and Middleton, I would have Picked Easily. I was a Knox supporter for a min my dude and was getting in wars defending him pre draft. Even you was commenting to me and showing shade when I showed Knox love. I remember everything. You were more than Meh on him. You wanted NO PARTS OF HIM ON THE KNICKS IN ANY FORM.
this is a SIM so I was shooting my shot with MPjr at the time as the highest boom or bust pick.
As far as real life...I wanted no parts of him because I wanted Mikal and he was on the board. Which I believe if you had the choice you were going Mikal over Knox as well. You just had Knox as a close second...but if you were picking would you have made that call too? I had MY choice...and my choice was on the board. I can't have like 10 choices...if my main choice was on the board.
To be fair to all of us...none of us saw those workouts that sold the knicks on Knox...so I can't hate on anyone because a lot of us had Mikal over Knox and I don't know why many people would have seen it differently if you compared there seasons last year. It does seem like workouts are becoming more and more important in the pre-draft process though.
And we do have to also realize this is summer league, guys careers aren't made or broken by summer league.
My dude stop using me and everyone else as crutches for the fact you was SUPER sour on Knox.
You can have 3 choices and pretty much like the all equally to me. You think Melo really had much difference with Tatum or DSJ last year? By the time the draft came, I was not even pushing Mikal anymore like early in the season cause I would have been fine with either one and I told you that a million times.
After Last year with Frank, I said mad time in the draft thread I won't be locked in on one player over the other why? CAUSE I HAVE NO CONTROL. Knox was not as close second, he damn near was equal to Mikal to me. Its the reason why I DEFENDED him. He was not a fall back player. He was a player I would have loved to have.
Will all confirm I was Team Knox well before the draft.
Im the one who said well befor ethe draft MPJ is the POOR MANS KNOX. People thought I was bugging.
The fact of the matter is YOU passed on Knox cause you did NOT LIKE HIM.
I LIKED HIM. Get yo Facts straight.
