    Mike D'antoni on Hill:
    “Our scouts had him rated as the second best player in the draft,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said, according to the News. “I don’t want to get ahead of myself but I think he can be a really good player. He’s long. He can really run the floor. He’s got range and he can block shots.”

    He might be decent, but I don't think he'll ever be more than a role player.

    I've been hoping we take Hill (or take Lee and make Hill the official replacement)....and powermove into a Rubio. If we don't.....this pick strikes me has heinously underwhelming....and with Isiah bitch slapping us one more time next year w/ our unprotected pick....christ...

    In and of Hill himself I've tried to be optimistic and think he's an interesting player who can run, be quick, and have the potential to be solid starter; and we coulda done worse (lol) getting trapped with like Holliday....but we need BIG, BOLD, DECISIVE moves -- a' la the Jets this past draft -- to get us out of the quicksand nightmare Isiah has delivered to us, and build a CHAMPION-caliber franchise.

    We needed a PG for the present and future. This draft was rich with PGs. We fail (until further notice), imo, by just sticking and settling with Hill @ 8.

    I'm tight I'm still banking on the chance we get rubio and from what I hear talks are serious and I hope we can land him.

    Jordan hill won't be more than a role player at best. I tried to open up to him and after watching videos on him its just not there hell be a better version of wilcox which still isn't much.

    I hope we get rubio there's still a chance so go out and do it walsh.

    Dantoni hasnt got over his breakup with Amare and is looking at Hill to fill the void.

    I swear this guy makes me think Chris Wilcox... maybe Walsh has something up his sleeve involving Lee by mid july

    this is why i usually dont get involved in discussions with any of you anymore. there are a few that got my respect around here but the rest are like the knicks fans showed on tv during the draft. whining. crying. dont know anything about the guy so automatically hate him cause his name isnt Curry. watch footage on this guy please. please. please. please. then talk. same old knicks fans, disgraced to be one on days like these.

    David Lee will be gone. like it or not he will be gone! and to have a big who can run, BLOCK!!!!!!!!, and shoot at what 53% is a HUGE plus.

    get over it people.

    i read his flaws and i think the same can be said about most knick fans. POOR BASKETBALL IQ.

    yeah haha, if you took all of david lees flaws it would double that. this guy is the real deal, well coached, and will fit in perfectly for what we want to do. I am not sweating him saying hes the next big thing, but in all honesty he was the best player available at that point in the draft.

    Default Big Bigger BBall

    PROS outweigh CONS, Hill was solid choice to add big man off/def
    presence, and replace DLee's rebounding/inside game. After StephCurry,
    Flynn, Rubio and Evans were gone, Hill was the way to go. I didn't see Hill
    any lower than 7 on dozens of mock drafts, and saw him as high as 3 on
    quite a few; hence, lotsa NBA folks think Hill is a good player, and well
    worthy of #8 pick. The fact he can run, shoot from the inside at a high
    percentage, and BLOCK is more than you can say about DLee...

    Donnie's doing a good job gettin the Knicks bigger and better, adding
    Darko and Hill made 2/3 of the team over 6-9. Donnie's got some major
    moves up his sleeves, wait till next week, when other teams start offering
    DLee and N8 contracts, we'll be signing and trading, and maybe Senor
    Rubio will be doing his thing in MSG...

    poor mans chris bosh

    i really didnt get this draft. the glaring weakness coming in was center and 2 guard and we ended up with a backup combo guard not really starting material and created yet another log jam at forward

    were potentially losing a 4 and 1 so we draft to replace the 4 and 1 spots. but fail to adress the missing pieces at the 2 and 5 positions

    were just telling everyone sit back and wait for 2010 yet were going to potentially yield a worse team then this season without the reward of a pick. then were gonna expect a superstar to want to come and play here with what we have

    we better have enough bread to sign 2 stars for sure cause if not no one is gonna be eager to come. and even if they 1 star wont make with what is left into a legit team
