Growing up in the 90’s the Knicks were awesome- they’re my second favorite team and I haven’t watched them in a decade. Unfortunately I can’t do that with the Jets.

The New York Knicks select (also pick #23). Let's go Knicks!

You're right almost every mock draft had him top 5!

There are draft sites on the internet that had Obi rated over Wiseman 

 

He’s an Amare clone. Offensively he’s going to be special but his defense meh

Wow did NYK just land a 6'3 PG out of KENTUCKY?!?!?

I don't know too much about Immanuel Quickley but I do know that if he's good enough for John Calipari he's good enough for me as an NY fan!

Anthony Edwards may have went #1 overall as a Second-team All-SEC player however I just heard John Calipari mentioning how not only was this kid last year's First-team All-SEC PG but also the SEC Conference Player of the year?!?!?

Anthony Edwards who?!?

We just got a 20 points/10 rebound/2 blocked shots Center one of only three players to ever average 20/10/2; one of them being Tim Duncan lol looking like Tom T is getting some fire power!

You’re very good at repeating exactly what the analysts say as soon as they say it.

One small note FWIW...

Rose traded 27 and 38 to move up to 23.  Then traded 23 to move back down to 25 and 33.

So in effect, he moved 27 and 38 up to 25 and 33.

That's Kevin Costner - Draft Day stuff.  Regardless of who he picked, he seemed to have a good feel for the value of the picks.

So, if you look at a traditional lineup what does the Knicks lineup look like?

C  - Robinson; Taj Gibson (color me surprised that they basically gave away Oturu)

PF - Randle; Toppin (Do they intend to trade Randle or have him play some C?)

SF - Brezdekias, Knox; Harkless (or just put Randle and Toppin in at Forward together)

SG - Barret; Dotson 

PG - Quickley; Smith, Jr; Nitlikina

It seems like a messy hodgepodge of players that just don't fit together in a traditional lineup unless they just intend to put their best player on the court regardless of position? And doing that requires Toppin, Randle and Robinson to be on the floor together. So, the lineup would be:

C - Robinson

F - Randle (C when Robinson on the bench)

F - Toppin

G - Barret

G - Quickley; Smith, Jr

Defensive specialist - Nitlikina

Shooting/Small Forwards - Knox and Brezdikias

Anyone tripping on Obi needs their head checked, dude is absolutely electric. 

Go get Westbrook and field and exciting team.

I'd be fine with Westbrook but just as a straight salary dump.  Do not give up assets
