New York Knicks
Odds of winning the lottery: 8.8 percent
This is a really tough call. What the Knicks need more than anything else is chemistry and a floor leader who can bring all of the egos on the Knicks together. On that account, Rose sounds like the right guy for the job. Furthermore, the Knicks need a point guard much more than they need a 4. Remember, before Zach Randolph was traded to the Knicks, he was considered one of the premier young power forwards in the league. However, would you rather have Randolph or Beasley? In the end, Isiah Thomas and company seems to worship stardom over chemistry and I think they opt for Beasley. On paper, they're right. But on paper, the Knicks have always been better than the product that shows up on the court each night. However, since I'm betting that someone other than Isiah will be calling the shots at this draft … I'm going with Rose. He's the type of player who can turn the culture around.
