    Default 2019 Draft lottery Prayer circle

    Whew site back up in time Iíve been checking all day. Draft is here in the CHI. Beautiful day here!!! I have on my Knicks socks and I have two Knicks beanies. Trying to decide which is the luckiest of the two. I will be watching the lottery at work. Matter of fact I know which hat Iím wearing: the same one I was wearing when a get a bad yelp complaint from a ďcustomerĒ. They didnít cop nothing and didnít even know my name but they remembered my Knicks beanie. Store owner was laughing 😂. Hopefully itís a winner🤞

    Here we go. Hoping for the best but braced for the worst. Positive thoughts though.

    Obviously, our pick is a big deal. Other big deal is if Mavs move up to top 5 pick. If they do, it protects their pick going to Atlanta which then delays the picks we get from them from 2021 and 2023.

    I wore my NYK tee under my work shirt today.... letís go!

    Not liking these reports about trading Zion to NO. Now, if itís Zion and Knits... and I can get KD plus a Rozier type free agent... well, then you have to consider.

    But no way am i trading Zion, Robinson, Knox and Knits for a guy about to become a free agent.

    Anyway.... tonight is about praying for 3 things.

    1- We get Zion
    2- We at least stay in top 4
    3 - No team other than SAC, PHO, ATL, MEM get top pick.

    I just canít imagine winning Zion lottery,
    Signing KD plus 1, and having 6 first rounders next 4 years. If this happens, build Perry a freaking statue.

    Oh, how funny was the report that KP got beat up by a group of Russians!

    Woj says that he doesnít think that any team will plan on trading Zion to get AD. The appeal of Zion is too high.

    Woj reiterating a minute ago live on ESPN that the Knicks will explore multiple options to try to trade for AD, but will not trade Zion if they are lucky enough to get him.

    I have a feeling Lakers get #1 because this whole thing is rigged and the NBA needs to save Lebron and LA.

    Oh well. Partyís over. Zion will be a Pelican.

    Great news is that Ja Morant or RJ Barrett will be a Knick!

    Obvious Mock Draft:

    1. New Orleans - Zion
    2. Memphis - Ja Morant (replacement for Conley)
    3. Knicks - RJ Barrett
    4. Lakers - get ****ed, thinking about who should go 4th and 5th is no longer our problem

    We only had a 14% at #1 and only had a 27% chance at top 2. We had a 60% chance to fall to #4 or #5. Could have gone a lot worse than #3.

    Mavs didnít move up so we get their unprotected 2021 and protected 2023 1st round picks.

    No one else who is going to try to trade for AD has a higher pick than us in the upcoming draft. New Orleans could reunite Zion and Barrett and send us AD.

    This night could have gone a lot worse for us.

    Last but not least, believe in the tank.

    Worst record got us #3 pick. 2nd worst record got the Suns the #6 pick. That could have been us.

    Well, the good news is we averted disaster. When I saw 3 teams jumped up I just assumed Knicks would pick 5th. I felt like it was Xmas when they didnít select NYk fifth...

    ESPN cuts to commercial... Iím still hopeful but rife with doubt...

    They donít fall to 4th... this was the first moment all week I believed in the possibility... then, before I know it... we are announced 3rd.

    Itís the most emotionless spot to be in. Youíre not angry bc we didnít fall to 4 or 5, and a ďbadĒ team didnít leap ahead of us... but you miss out on Zion and the ability to choose between Ja or RJ.

    The good news: Zion and RJ are best pals. What better way to rebuild then to draft Zion and trade AD for for RJ. I do this in a heartbeat as long as we donít have to mortgage half our assets to get him.

    NO can rebuild around Zion and RJ... NY gets to place KD and AD together.

    Not happy, but not upset.

    And, hey, maybe we flip RJ to ATL for their 2 lottery picks?
