    Analytics in basketball is not to a point where the whole story or predictions can be made simply because of stats. Baseball is the furthest along when it comes to analytics in sports and itís still...
  2. The Knicks like Ball and wonít be able to get him...

    The Knicks like Ball and wonít be able to get him if they donít move up. How is this a similar comparison to wanting a player that you know you can get later?!
  3. My post clearly went over your head.

    My post clearly went over your head.

    Neither were viewed as high level/slam dunk prospects, especially Westbrook who was the third wheel behind Jrue Holiday and Darren Collison.

    Both trades were within the top 5 and thereís a reason...
  5. Cool, point still remains.

    Cool, point still remains.

    Do you really think a rookie Jamal Murray was better than RJ as a rookie? You canít possibly believe that...

    DíAngelo Russell? Because they both were better three point shooters?

    You feel this way because you think that a team can be built with a spreadsheet. Let me know the next time that works.
  8. Again, youíre just focused on the rare outcome....

    Again, youíre just focused on the rare outcome. Also, we are talking about the top talent in the draft. The thread isnít letís trade up for a PG, itís letís trade up for LaMelo Ball.

    We can play...

    I understand that, but those players are replaceable.

    Losing Fields or Hardaway didnít hurt the Knicks. Mitch is the only one that has the potential to be more.

    Solid players donít do much...

    Itís not PG vs. QB, itís a top talent vs. QB. You need blue chip talents to even have a shot at winning. They are typically found higher in the draft, which is why trading back isnít really a thing...
  11. Youíre talking about exceptions. Iím talking...

    Youíre talking about exceptions. Iím talking about the most likely occurrence.

    Also, trading down from even 6 to go down more than just a couple spots is different than trading down from 9.

    The value of picks 27 and 38 is minimal. DeíAndre Hunter was essentially traded for that last year.

    Sure, itís another dart throw, but itís a dart throw with one eye closed and while stepping...
  13. The goal is to add on, not just replace players....

    The goal is to add on, not just replace players. Youíre also basically saying that LaMelo and number 6 in this draft is better than LaMelo and RJ. Thatís nuts.
  14. Not one person has mentioned trading an...

    Not one person has mentioned trading an additional lottery pick. We are talking about late first round picks and second round picks.
  15. When has that ever proven to work in the NBA if...

    When has that ever proven to work in the NBA if itís more than 1 or 2 spots? Thereís a reason that it doesnít happen often.

    In the NFL itís considered good practice to trade down, but yet...

    5 to 3 and weíre talking about something similar. LaMelo can be had at 3 or 4.
  17. Iím more worried that Edwards is a more...

    Iím more worried that Edwards is a more physically gifted Dion Waiters than LaMelo completely flaming out. LaMelo is at least a high IQ player whose game isnít reliant on scoring. There are things...

    I think he would go 4. He would likely go top 5 in most years which is both of our points. Meanwhile people are arguing for players that are all over the board in a weak draft. Where would those guys...

    How many times has the consensus top guy or someone who most feel is an absolute game changer for a franchise ever been traded? Yet, draft trades happen and the team trading up benefits a lot of the...

    They are going to resume, but it doesnít seem like non playoff teams will be included.

    The issue that I have with a lot of these opinions that the Knicks shouldnít trade up is that the Doncic situation is rare.

    Teams do not trade picks when the player is a slam dunk future HOF,...

    I would trade up for him if his worst possible outcome is Rubio, which is exactly what I think it is right now.
