    Didnít listen to the whole thing but one thing I like about him so far is that he seems greatful. He fell to 8 and I havenít heard him talk about ďthe hatersĒ once. Thank Goodness

    What are people saying about his passing? He makes some nice looks in highlights.

    Nice write up. Say his most under noticed skill is his court vision. Thatís nice. His ability to rim run and score in general will collapse defenses some

    Hmm...

    PG: E. Payton
    SG: F. Ntilikina
    C: Mitchell Robinson
    PF: Obi Toppin
    SF: RJ Barrett

    Hmm...something is missing here. Oh that's right. No one can shoot. Spacing. Gonna be a problem. Otherwise this is another 10 win team.

    No complains with this pick. I wonder if we come to regret passing on Avdija. But we need talent everywhere, I was pleasantly surprised he was there at 8. Good pick

    This is clearly a tanking team. The Knicks better win the lottery and draft Cade Cunningham or Assault on MSG 2021.

    I'm serious.

    My problem with this pick is the fact, the Knicks new Front Office clearly overvalued what they had. If you look how teams are giving up 3-4 future First Rounders for a good player, the Knicks had to have known there was NO WAY a team would let go of Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, James Harden unless the Knicks pony'd up 3-4 future first rounders (to start).

    So instead of making point guard a priority, they drafted a guy who is older than all their draft picks over the last 3 years!!!!!

    I hope there is MORE to this kid than Tobias Harris w/o a jump shot.

    But you don't pick a 22-year old kid who will peak in 3 seasons unless you had a plan to win now.

    I know...another workout video

    I wanted to post this because it seems like people are having a hard time with Obi saying thereís much more to his game that he wasnít able to show and with draft experts not putting a question mark next to his shot.

    If the man can shoot heís gonna be a very good offensive player and thatís something to be excited about

    Thatís where Iím at also. Seeing playoff game scores at 135-130 in regulation, Iím not freaking out about subpar defense right now. Letís see what happens when he gets with Thibs and how the Knicks build the roster around him before determining that heís so bad that it canít work. We needed offense, we got offense. Letís see where they go from here in terms of putting the pieces together.

    If heís averaging 22 and 8( in his prime ) on 48/75/38 splits I donít give a **** about his defense. As long as itís not the worst in the world (which I canít imagine heís worse than Randle/Kanter) itíll be fine especially with Mitch behind him. We need to hope we can find a PG they can make it easier on him RJ and Mitch

    This team is going to be pretty bad.

    It's really on young, flawed players who can't shoot nor hit free throws.

    Obi Toppin's rookie season will look Amar'e -esque: 13.5 ppg and 6-7 rpg. Once the Knicks actually get a legit superstar point guard, you're going to see his numbers explode.
