So I'm down for:

1.  Edwards / Ball

3. Okongwu
4. Vassell
5. Avidja
6. Halliburton

Edwards seems dynamic and a Day one starter, possible all star, but we'd still need a PG.  Ball seems like a terrific PG but he's very young, and you have to wonder if NYC and our team is a good spot for him to develop.  I'd probably go Edwards because he seems more of a sure thing.  But damn we need a PG.

Maybe a possibility of trading down to get Vassell and pick up some sweetener for helping another team lower down get Wiseman(?)



yep

Brad gave his friend Kam(s)ter a gift today. Was the Kanter DNP a Birthday Present?

Happy Birthday Kamster!!! 🎂 🎁 🍰 🎈

After Edwards/Ball, I'm interested in Okongwu.  Seems like a winner.  An energy Big you can start for a decade.  Don't think I even saw video on Vassell yet, but interested in anyone considered the best shooter in the draft.

Avidja and Halliburton probably my next two.
But I'm not a draftnik and have only seen a few minutes of vid on most the Top 7 guys.

I keep hoping that Obi Topcat and Wiseman James, both at times listed at #1 overall in the past, go high, moving more G's and talent we want down to us.

Vassel is the sleeper stud....forget the shooting for a moment...his defense is straight out of the pack elite..here's some footage:

Pharoah, who are your Top 6/Top 7 picks for the Knix?


While excising the bottom 8 means better matchups, it's also the end of the season and teams have started sitting out guys.
LeBJ didn't play the other night.
Clips played the last 3 minutes without a starter (and beat the Blazers).
POR needed the W, LAC didn't.

Down all game, DEN with a 4Q comeback capped by Jamal Murray heroics.
The Donovan decides he can do that too, scoring 5 in the last 10 secs for OT.
(also credit Jingles for stealing an inbounds pass)

Donovan Mitch made some clutch-ass shots (and played 47 mins).
Jamal Murray in his first game back played 39 mins and nearly had a trip-dub.
Was terrific late 4Q and OT's.

Porter Jr. had a bad 1st half, but battled back and had a nice 2nd half. 
Finished 23 & 11 and a team high +/-.

Love to have guys like Torrey Craig and Royce O'Neal on my team.
And I'll take Jerami Grant as my starting PF instead of Randle.
Wonder how much Grant will earn as a FA?

I love it when we agree.

Well, Steve Mills' legacy is set in stone, right up their with the trade that sent Nolan Ryan packing in exchange for Jim Fregosi. 

Otherwise, while I was waiting for Bo to say something snarky about Trey Burke, he drained another trey.

Indeed, he and Hardaway are often feast or famine.  True dat.

Trey's post-bubble three point percentage is a mere 41%. 

Apparently his feast is an all you can eat salad bar.

They are Mark Cuban’s children now. Knicks pre-playoff elimination allows us to root promiscuously through the bubble.

Don’t know that we ever had a real shot at him, but damn, T.J. Warren doing all the T.J. Warren things. Vic and Brogdon set the table. Turner has his back. Warren is rolling and carrying his team.

The Raps and Clips seem all about business. Jackson is having a revival of sorts in L.A.

Milwaukee and Boston are serious and deep. Miami seems right there as well.

Philly the Lakers and Houston seem beset by drama.

Denver and Portland are tough.

It’s very good to have basketball back, even without the Knicks.
