    Itís funny how much things have changed with the NBA draft. You draft the best college player at 8 and it seems like a mistake.

    KNicks Just drafted a guy who wasnít even good enough to play college basketball until he grew 7 inches his Jr year. The dude is almost 23? Unbelievable bad pick. Yeah... he feasted on kids 4 years younger at Dayton. A major conference. What an awful pick!!!!

    Thereís a reason teams donít draft 22 yr-olds in the lottery. This isnít 1975 and heís coming out of UCLA.

    Something up with Haliburton. He continues to slide. Spurs grab Vassell.

    We sign Randle, Portis, Morris, Gibson and draft Knox, so naturally letís waste the 8th pick on another PF.

    Knox and Toppin arguably the weakest defensive PF duo in NBA history.

    To be fair, Pascal Siakam was drafted at age 22, so Toppinís age doesnít bother me.

    I guess this means they are trading Randle, maybe?

    Donít love the Obi Toppin pick, but donít hate it as much as others.

    If we get Tyrell Terry or Theo Maledon at 23, Iíll be happier.

    Spurs take Vassell at 11 as predicted for months.

    If they don't get Cole or Terry, Randall for Russ maybe or we roll with DSJ and Nits.

    Tyrese Haliburton goes #12 to Kings. Good chance we might regret passing on him.

    I prepared myself for it for a week, especially al day after CLE rumor surfaced. When Pat and Okoro went, I knew it was coming. I though I was prepared for it. But, then it happened and I am more irate than I ever imagined. Such a freaking waste of a pick.

    Thibs will hate the kid and wonít play him, thatís assuming we trade Randle. It also means we have up on Knox, bc they play the same position. Mostly, tho, it shows Rose is all
    About how ďconnectionsĒ and not finding the best players.

    Sorry, I donít want my freaking GM using a lottery pick on a guy just bc his own son is the playerís agent. Thatís wrong!

    Now, is he BPA? Maybe, if we had the correct roster. But not here...

    22 and from a mid-major! Itís almost like Rose has no clue who to draft, so to avoid perception of a bust heíll take the guy who can be featured on highlight packages.

    You know what you wonít see? Obi finishing games bc he will be out in P&R situations and exposed.

    And, guess what? With no spacing (shooters) and no PG, Toppin wonít be able to get a shot off.

    Like I said, I was prepared to be disappointed.... but this is like when we took Jordan Hill all over again. I have no faith in this pick or this regime. Iím watching Mavs this season.

    Well guys im not the arrogant jerk I once was lol. I thought we did a good thing by drafting Obi but reading responses here it looks like im wrong

    I did think the kid from Israel seemed like he would have been a good pick too as well as Haliburton

    Whats next now?

    Siakum from Africa tho and he was properly
    Developed. We donít develop guys. And Toppin isnít that good a fit for our roster... or our coach... He can dunk. Wow.
