    Cleveland has named all of hits sports disappointments. The shot, the drive, the fumble, the decision….I’m so happy that they took the mental torture of me having to wonder of them drafting Porter Jr and wondering if this choice would infamously be dubbed “the draft”. No let’s see if my Knicks have the minimals to draft him next. This of course can also be a heartache if he turns out to be a superb player.

  2. knickscavsfan

    The Clippers have the 12th and 13th. IF …IF ..Porter slips to them they have to take him. They can get the top guy they want and then gamble on Porter.

    • knickscavsfan

      Porter Jr? Tough choice. Not sure if I trust them to make the right calls but we just have to wait and see. Not mad at the choice.

    • x%sure

      I called it. Knox to Knix.

      Congrats to nbadraft.net on Shamet. Other sources had him in the 40s.

      So much for the Laker promise to Robinson. Probably there was no promise, just a prospect who doesn’t show up.

  3. knickscavsfan

    Would be interesting if Porter Jr slips to Phx at #16. They get the guy who was ranked #1 in Ayton and the guy who most feel would be #1 if he was at full health. I think they can afford to wait for him to heal 100%. That would be amazing for them.

    Clips taking two guards is telling me they do not believe Milos is sticking around

  5. dustin daugherty 824

    Boston… might as well just trade your pick cuz idk who you guys should get.

      • knickscavsfan

        That was a GREAT pick and a nice fit to play opposite of Horford. Williams physicality to Horford’s finesse. Some draft boards had Williams going anywhere from 14-18.

  6. mets2424

    Knicks made a great pick. A 18 year old scorer who’s only going to get better.

      • padam

        ^+1. Porter is worth the gamble. Knox is going to be a bench player after he proves he’s not starter material in a couple of years. Doesn’t matter who the Knicks put in office, they continue to screw up. KP was an accident because the bad decision was taken away before they could make it (Okafor).

        • Z-A

          Ironically Okafor would have been the perfect Triangle Offense pick for Phil.

        • bknowledge

          I wanted Mikal Bridges. There’s no way to make a defense consistently work well with KP and Knox. They’re both weak rebounding offensive minded forwards. Either they’ll have to play with a rebounding meaning either KP or Knox will have to guard small forwards which they won’t be able to do. Or if they don’t play with a rebounding center, either KP or Knox are going to have guard big centers (Aaron Baynes, Drummond, DeAndre Jordan) which they can’t do either. Besides making it next to impossible to build a good defense, it’s also not good that Knox will want to play the same position on offense as KP. They’re gonna wanna play offense from the same spots. They’re gonna fight about this. It will work sometimes, but its not an ideal situation for developing young players.

          • bknowledge

            “Either they’ll have to play with a rebounding center meaning either KP or Knox will have to guard small forwards. Or, they won’t play with a rebounding center and either KP or Knox will have to guard the likes of Drummond, Baynes, DeAndre Jordan”

  7. bknowledge

    Knox is 6’9. I can only name 2 guys taller that tall who spent their career guarding the small forward position (Tayshaun Prince and Paul George). If Knox can’t guard the small forward position, the Knicks won’t be able to play good D.

  8. bknowledge

    I wanted Mikal Bridges. Mikal can guard pg, sg, sf, and small ball fours. Mikal has a bigger wingspan and he’s shorter than Knox. Being shorter has advantages in defense: its easier to get lower in a crouch; shorter people have lower centers of gravity which helps them move better faster laterally. Every championship team has a stud wing defender. The Knicks had a chance to get one but they passed. Big mistake.

  9. bknowledge

    KP already played with combo sf/pf who was good on offense but mediocre on defense and rebounding. And it didn’t work at all. Big failure actually. Ground hog day for the Knicks.

  10. cesc

    In my opinion the big winners are:
    Phoenix – Ayton/Mikal
    Sacramento – MBIII
    Dallas – Doncic
    Atlanta – Young
    Chicago – WCJ
    LAC – SGA/Miles
    But above all for the x factor at #14, with the biggest upside is…
    Denver – MPJ
    You see I think he might very well be the best ever player selected at #14, that has always been for me Clyde Drexler, which I grew up loving how he played, absolutely brilliant player, but MPJ can go even better, maybe no, maybe health… who knows but at #14 no one can ever criticize Denver if it doesn’t pay off… but boy oh boy if it pays off, all the other teams will get a good grilling from their fans.

  11. cesc

    Also I don’t think I have read anything on Chicago picking WCJ, man what a steal, I think they were gonna go wrong, as always picking Bamba, but Orlando saved them from themselves & picked the right man… just sorry for him, coming from Duke to Chicago but… well what can you do, he is gonna be great.

  12. SouthsideSlugger

    I really like what OKC was able to do with this draft. Getting Diallo and picking Hall and Hervey were nice additions.
