    Iím ecstatic with the pick. I would have loved Deni as well, but there is considerable more risk there IMO.

    Obi is going to prove a lot of doubters wrong. Heís extremely talented. Hopefully Randle can be moved.

    For #8 Obi is a good pick.

    Also frees us to trade Randle for Westbrook

    Obi Toppin is the oldest rookie in the draft. He's older than Mitchell Robinson, Frank Ntilikina, Dennis Smith Jr, RJ Barrett, Kevin Knox, Julius Randle, Scott Perry....

    The loser with this pick is Mitchell Robinson who will be face palming with Julius Randle and Obi Toppin's horrific defensive lapses.

    The Knicks have a scorer who likes to dunk, alongside ball dominant RJ Barrett, and Mitchell Robinson.

    Gonna need a top flight point guard to get that spacing right.

    I donít like this idea if JR being ball dominate and everyone being ok with it. If he canít play off ball he needs to become a lot better shooter and finisher. Personally I think he can. He just got to get used to it and Thibs has ask him too.

    Guess a trade for Russ is looking more likely

    Itíll at least be fun to watch. More than willing to give him a chance. Donít understand all the hate.

    We need a PG pretty badly. Plus where will Toppin play? Do we have to trade Randle now and did we lose our leverage? Look I'm rooting for Obi to crush it but I'm concerned about our starting 5. Do you trust Frank or Payton all year

    Randle is gone, this year or next.

    Itís only a matter of time.

    There is no way the Knicks go into next year with Frank and Payton at PG. They will upgrade, even if we don't get a star there we will have an upgrade.

    If Thibs can get him to play D, he could be the steal of the draft. It's a big "if" but if there is a coach who can do it, I think Thibs is one of them
