I didn't watch the end of the game, but checked in here to see the reaction. Saw NoDope with the Pandemic P resurgence post. Checked the box score. 4-17. Thought earnestly, "how does Paul George keep doing this?" Came back to the thread, And-1'd your post.

It really is a legit problem. A great player who folds at the most important moments of the season. Unacceptable. It's just bad, bad, bad.

I had a look at 2017 draft pick. It's between Tatum and Mitch for 1. Not sure if I remembered correctly, apart from Fox, there were like 10 busts up until Donovan and Bam(14th pick).

Its really mortifying how the Knicks failed to get a good player at the upper picks every year....
But they seem to nail it at the 20s -- truly head-scratching

I remember thinking Mitchell would be a Kawhi/PG type of steal in the late lotto. I still think about that ****. :lol:

I don’t remember too many people wanting Mitchell, everyone back then thought we messed up by passing up DSJ.

A lot of teams - 13 to be exact - missed out on Mitchell, c'mon now. He was drafted like no. 14 or something.

Huerter is good for what he is. I really like his length and quickness on defense.

Watching Booker and Mitchell in these playoffs just tells me we need to do whatever to get Beal or Lavine

So whoever drafted Frank over Mitchell needs to be punched in the face.

What's hilarious to me is the crying about not having drafted Mitchell or Doncic while at the same time considering Lonzo Ball a legit NBA point guard. Clearly you miss on some prospects while they've never played in the NBA yet, but how can you still miss on Lonzo? He has been the most underwhelming #2 pick and has been playing in the NBA for years now.

The misses in the draft are painful.

At least we have a new scouting department including the guy responsible for drafting Mitchell. Hopefully they can find a gem or 2 in this draft

Jokic | Mahinmi | Samanic
Giannis | Kleber | Okpala
Mikal Bridges | House | CJ Elleby

Knicks haven't had a legit SG since Allan Houston's heyday. :cry:

No PG since Marbury.

WTH has this organization really been doing to address the Knick's backcourt all these decades? :lol: :lol:
