Bruh I am mad cause we didn't take Jamaal franklin who is better than Tim in about every way possible....
but look at our team... we need SHOOTERS who can catch and shoot. its not always about who's better. its making things pieces fit. a shooter is a shooter. it doesnt matter what level you are at. college, overseas, d league, pros. it doesnt matter if u can catch and shoot u can catch and shoot. he can impact our team faster then someone else who is a better player who may need time for his game to adjust. well in our short window we dont have anytime for that. btw i wanted jamaal as well
Hmmm....That's it huh? I'm not mad just not inspired

That's the problem we're still in win now when we should be on that 2015 plan..... Ah well hopefully Knicks get some damn second rounders
There's nothing wrong with this pick. Hardaway can shoot the ball. He's a good defender and he can get to the basket. I also consider him a high IQ player and he's a good guy.
We need to drop JR like a bad habit. Now that we drafted Hardaway the writing is on the wall. Lates Swish... Go stink it up when it matters for whomever is dumb enough to give you your next contract.
Now we have another Jr, one I can really be a fan of.
why? so when 2015 comes we get on the 2017 plan
I told dad around pic 7 or something that I would love to see my knicks draft tim Hardaway Jr just to see how his father reacts.He wasn't there and even thow im sure he is proud of his son it is killing him that his son is now a KNICK LOL.
GREATEST KNICK EVER!!!!
10.6 RSB40 and 3.3 S40 in college and was rightfully underrated. Bum Hardaway Jr has never scored over 20 P40 or posted an RSB40 over 7.0. His S40 has been below 1.0. He is a significantly inferior player to Iman and the only draft pick the knicks will have until 2015. Bruh's Grunwald f*cked up and used the pick on a good character player.... He's not JR he will likely take the role Ronnie Brewer had (half decent defense and the 3 shot) on the team.
F*cking only good thing about this draft is the Nyets set themselves up to suck more than us in the upcoming years....
No evidence that proves Tim is a good defender. He gets beat one on one, especially against slashers and he doesn't close out against 3pt shooters. Dude is 100% crap defensive.
His shooting isn't even that great.
42% FG 36% 3pt 75% FT
41% FG 28% 3pt 71% FT
43% FG 37% 3pt 69% FT
He has no mid range game or no slashing game and his 3pt game isn't that strong enough for him to be a threat...He can develop things as he grows but Hardaway wasn't a need.
Shumpert can fill the void that is JR Smith by playing 10-12 extra minutes and play 34 minutes per game. We didn't need a SG that desperately...
if we did, Ledo would of been a superior option. By far.
good pick up
will bring a very nice flow to our team
