    I love the Rautins pick.. and don't question the system Walsh knows his stuff. Look at Gallo, Douglas, Walker. All questionable at the time. Studs now

    Yes but NOT AT THAT PRICE

    EVERY single 7 footer in the league gets at least a MLE level contract because teams know how important it is to have a big man if you want to go ANYWHERE. That's why bigs like DeSagana Diop and Erick Dampier have such huge contracts despite the fact that well they kinda suck.

    We won't be able to get a big man unless we take on a HUGE contract. Drafting Solomon Alabi and/or Jerome Jordan was our best chance to get a big man for cheap - and their contracts aren't even guaranteed so we can cut them if we want to.

    But no, now we're stuck having to resort to trades that HAVEN'T HAPPENED yet. Where do you propose Walsh is going to get a center from?

    Douglas is not a "stud", Douglas is a "potential" stud that could end up being a dud just like Mardy Collins was.

    Gallo is good, I'll give that to you.

    And Walker wasn't a Walsh pick, Walker was via trading Nate to the Celtics

    as it looks now we'll probably give T.Chandler or Hayward a huge contract cause i dont see why any free agent would wanna come with a bunch of SF'd....smfh

    YO, whats your defintion of stud? STUD? Come on, get real. Come on, the system is no system at all... The knicks SUCK not because our players totally suck, but because the "system" they implement sucks azz... There is no reason the Bucks should have had a better record than the knicks, the only reason that happened, is because they are able to gage talent better and have a better coach who actually has a system...

    Being a dime a dozen doesn't excuse them from neglecting a NEEDED position... TWICE! It only furthers the fact they should have acquired one.

    How bout' the better C's and G's were taken just before us and all we had to do was offer money, which could of happened long ago.

    But you think I should support drafting another G and SF. Not a shooting guard, a point guard is what we needed. We all know the good FA's are shooters, and we've BEEN the Small Forward Depot since...

    How bout' we try something new? Or maybe we could continue to look insane.

    Mike D didn't even talk about the draft picks. I really don't think they care about this draft. Which i think was essential for us. Not only picking up a C but filling our roster with cheap but efficient players.

    People need to chill. I hate the second pick as much as anybody, but after 20 years of bitter disappointment when it comes to the draft.... are we really surprised? The sad thing is.... we traded away 3 first rounders (Hill + 2 future selections) just to dump 6 million bucks off the 2010 payroll.

    Imagine what will happen if we fail to land a big time free agent or two? Complete disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Still, this smells like trading Wilson Chandler is definitely an option. It might not be plan-A, but... POR dealt Webster away. Drafted a PG. I'm just saying.

    Rautins was a good pick. He would fill the JJ Redick role if we get LJ. Just an option to come off the bench, and serve as a sniper. At 38, our options were/are limited.

    I thought we should take one shooter and one big. Alibi, Jordan or Varnado.

    BUT WE HAVE TO SEE THE ROSTER come Sept to judge. Heck, what if we sign Bosh or Amare, and LJ? Keep Curry or deal Eddy for Okefor. Would we really need Jarvis Varnado then?

    BUT, if Walsh gets nothing and swings and misses come free agency.... COMPLETE DISASTER.

    However, only a fool would make the Jeffries deal unless he felt (heard) he had a better than 50/50 chance to land LJ. Say, for example, someone saying LJ will come to NYC ONLY if you can bring Bosh as well? Who knows. Find out next week.
