    I proposed the same idea in another thread. Some users pointed out that it would be very hard.

    I have to agree, since it has been stated this is a weak draft class. Most teams would probably avoid curry's contract to get the 8th pick. My only hope would be there is a team that really have a belief in X player at the 8th spot being something huge.

    So we have a 28 out of 1000 chance of getting the 1st pick! We're ****ed!

    There's a 3.26% of 2nd pick & a 3.87% of landing 3rd!

    Unless there's some sort of intervention we'll be picking between 7 & 10.

    If we can't get either Lawson or Thabeet in that range, I can't see the worth in the pick to a degree. Unless of course we land a Van Exel-esque steal.

    I hope the management aren't riding on this too much.

    i still remember how hyped every1 was last year thinking tht was our year to get rose or beasly. but all we can do is hope to get a top 2 pick. i read on a si.com rumor that the knicks value rubio higher than griffen so much that if they got the number one pick, theyd chose rubio. quite interesting

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] New York will get in the top three this year, the NBA needs their market, and the lottery hasnt exactly looked far in the past. If they do there board should go, Blake Griffin, Ricky Rubio, than Hasheem Thabeet. Check this site out, really good for draft info like the knicks have a 72.4% chance of picking 8th.

    "Unless there's some sort of intervention we'll be picking between 7 & 10."

    Just to clear things up on the chances of where we'll pick. Here are the exact percentage chances.

    8th pick - 72.4%
    9th pick - 16.8%
    3rd pick - 3.9%
    2nd pick - 3.3%
    1st pick - 2.8%
    10th pick - .8%

    jst a thought, but if the knicks cant get a first or second pick wud it be smart to root for the wizards to get the second pick? they only want griffen and with agent zero there, getting rubio wud be pointless. the knicks cud offer a trade like this

    Wizards Get

    Larry Hughes
    David Lee
    Draft Pick?

    Knicks Get

    Etan Thomas
    Darius Songalia
    some1 else who doesnt make a lotta money
    Wizards first round pick

    knicks give the wizards some luxury tax relief, and a promising young player. we **** our 2010 plan, but i really like rubio, as do a lot on this forum, and the knicks seem to be infatuated with him also.

    wat u guys think? wud it work?

    Since none of my other good luck charms/traditions have worked, I will be watching this Draft Lottery in the nude.

    I think the worst case scenario would be to see Toronto get lucky and move into the top 3. Then it would really make you think if the Knicks won 1 or 2 more games they would have been able to get Rubio or Griffin.

    Seeing NJ move up would be a nightmare too..
