When was the last time you heard Charles Oakley comment on something? Man, I miss reading these brazen controversy filled quotes from the Oak tree LOL

He got that Bill Walton opinion. LMAO

As [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] was leaving the practice gym Wednesday in Greenburgh, he was stopped by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and according to Curry, was told by the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] coach that he doesn't have a future in New York.
"(He) walked up to me and told me, 'We can't draft you,'" Curry said. "And I was like, 'Oh, why?' And he was like, 'Because [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] doesn't want to be the second-best shooter in Knicks history.'"

There is no question that Curry leads all draft prospects in confidence and hype, much of it generated by himself. When asked Wednesday what type of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] player he expects to be, Curry answered, "A great one."
Despite what Curry says about himself, he won't be the top pick in the June25 NBA draft. Whether he will be available when the Knicks pick at No. 8 remains to be seen.

Curry, a 6-4 converted point guard, is scheduled to work out for the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] next week. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] holds the fifth pick. There are whispers that Curry could even go as high as fourth, to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] owns the seventh pick, but Curry said that he isn't planning on giving the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] a private workout. That could mean that the Wolves have no interest in Curry, or that Curry and his representatives don't want Minnesota to pick him.

The Knicks are looking to upgrade their point guard position, and there is talk that they already have a draft deal trade in place with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to acquire [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who has not established himself as a starting-caliber player. If the Knicks were to acquire Rodriguez, they still may draft a point guard.

Curry worked out with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] freshman [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who also could go in the top seven. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'s [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] point guard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] were in on Monday.

Holiday played under [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who is regarded as one of the nation's top coaches and who has a habit of turning out decent pros. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] all played under Howland.

"He puts a lot of emphasis on defense," Holiday said. "There are a lot of people in the league who don't play defense like UCLA does."

The Knicks under D'Antoni are not known for their defense. It's one reason why Curry feels he is ideal for D'Antoni's up-tempo system. He is regarded as the best shooter in the draft. In fact, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who played with Curry's father, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], calls Stephen the best shooter in the world today.

But can Curry play point guard? Davidson made the Final Eight of the 2008 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Tournament with Curry at shooting guard. With Curry running the point, Davidson failed to make the 65-team field this year.

Curry did manage to strike up a friendship with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this past season, and says they text-message regularly.

"He's helped me with what to expect, as well, with the draft process ... with the hype about the draft, how to handle the pressure and workouts," Curry said. "I'll be dropping him lines if I'm here, trying to get him to come (in 2010)."
