    Default Knicks failing to obtain Mayo on Draft Nite 08 will set the franchise back a decade.



    Mayo is the best rookie from this draft class.
    Followed by Rose
    followed by Lopez
    followed by Augustin
    Followed by Randolph
    Followed by Beasley
    Followed by Westbrook
    Followed by Gallinari
    Followed by Gordon
    and finally followed by Love

    I remember there was a potential trend that would send Lee to Memphis + the Knicks 1st for Memphis 1st....I understand Memphis got Love @ 5...but Minnesota wanted LOVE badly....so we could of swapped Love for Mayo and get a sweet deal...also send Crawford as a filler since to replace Mayo @ SG.

    Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal, and Jason Collins.

    Yo....we could of offered way better than that...eh.

    Knicks could of been

    Duhon
    Mayo
    Chandler
    ????
    ????

    Who cares.

    Mayo is a guy you could build around.

    Very Kobe-esqe.

    87 FT shooter

    One of the best jumpshots in the NBA.

    38% 3pt shooter on his first year.

    Averages more assist than TO'S

    almost 19 ppg under 3 TO's per game.

    Excellent defender.
    Excellent PG skills at the SG position.
    Excellent athlete who doen't rely on his athelism, more on his agility(which is why he would have a career like Kobe and won't break down like Carter or Wade last year)

    Damn...we always settle for medicore ****...its so lame.


    There won't be a player of Mayo's caliber for a while...Mayo > Griffin, Rubio, Jennings, etc...

    Mayo will be a top 3 player...guranteed.

    I agree. I really wanted us to get Mayo. If I remember right, I think Lee ruined that trade. His agent told Memphis that he wouldn't resign with them, thus killing the deal.

    Default Mayo

    I recall the proposed trade of Lee to Memphis as straight up for the fifth pick. We would have kept the 6th pick. I do not believe that we proposed to give up Lee solely to move up one spot. At the time, everyone knew that Rose, Beasley and Mayo would comprise the top three and that they were well ahead of the rest of the pack.

    Default Gallinari will be better.

    Mayo is older and has a mature body. Gallo shoots better (much), plays very good defense (especially the all important help defense), is at least as good a passer and offers more versatility. Three years down the road you will see. The kid is just 19. If it turns out that he is the best player in the draft, I won't be surprised.

    If we nagged OJ MAYO

    and kept the 6th pick and drafted B. Lopez

    we would be making the playoffs this season.

    We'd have a shotblocking center and a SG who no doubt will be Kobe-esque in the clutch, thus getting rid of our main problems

    We could still acquire him sometime down the road. I don't think he wants to stay in Memphis too long, who would?

    Good thinking. We could very easily deal Lee or Nate for him or Rudy Gay. Or maybe even lil' Gasol.

    I'm not talking straight up, but in package deals.

    Exactly. People on this site need to stop looking at a stupid 2010 plan. Not drafting Lopez and not attempting to trade for Mayo was a stupid move that will haunt the Knicks for years to come.

    Just like trading for Marbury.

    For once we are on the same page.

    We did attempt a trade for Mayo. Lee and his agent ruined it. He was really our only trading chip at the time of the draft.

    "Exactly. People on this site need to stop looking at a stupid 2010 plan"

    That's what the reality is abcd. The 2010 plan, Management have indicate all along that we will dump salary for a big FA in 2010. Should we stop looking at reality and start if if if just like you?

    i remember that, i made a thread right after sayin we should trade Lee for doing that. If he didnt open his mouth we might have Mayo. Its hard to find shooting guards like him..
