Happy for him.

He takes high percentage shots.
Robinson shoots 65% FG +
RJ Barrett's shooting is going to improve

We will see a different Knicks team. Toppin can lead an offense and it won't be thirsty.

Toppin can give you 20 ppg without wasting possesions.


He plays with excitement. He has leadership qualities.

We know he will be good offensively.


If he improves his defense, we got a potential best player in the draft.

I’m expecting peeps to be super negative here but I love the pick. I’m loving the RJ, Obi, Mitch core. Just build around that and we may finally have something!

Happy we drafted him. Him & Hayes were my top 2 choices at 8.

He’s gonna be able to score at the next level, and his shooting isn’t gonna be a fluke. Love his ability to make the right pass too. It’s a good value pick at 8.

Kid really wants to be here

I can respect that

But we need to do a lot to fit the roster around him.

Love it!!! They went with BPA instead of another bum ass PG. Ya I know we still need one but you dont take just any PG cuz you can. We should know that by now. Great Pic!!
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take

I'm waiting for all the other shoes to drop. We need more to maximize the type of player Obi is
