I as a true Knicks fan have been thinking of what would be are best option for this upcoming draft to help us turn things around!
Well even though I am not an Isiah hater ( I actually still believe his some of his moves will turn out) getting Walsh might have started the Perfect Storm for us! We are never in the mix for D'Atoni if he is not in charge!
D'Atoni will bring a winning mentality to a team in desperate need of a change in our mental thinking! He fell in our lap! Think about it when the Suns played the Spurs last month we were talking Markie J for coach! Now we have a coach who turned the Suns around and made them the most exciting team in the league in one season!
He traded there best player at the time(Starbury) and yet still made the playoffs! Is that happening again now!
With some luck I think it could!
We missed out at the lottery as far as getting sixth pick but maybe that could somehow be a part of the Storm too! If we never move up the age in the draft Mayo would of outright been # 1 last year no doubt! Over Oden! But 1 great season on a subpar NCAA team yet Rose or Beasley ( not convinced Rose goes 1) get picked 1 & 2! Now mayo is there available!
First he is told from Coach Floyde he must look more for his shot then getting his team involved! Now he has been labeled not a good enough passer! Yeah right! Then the agent thing! Off court problem! The credit card thing! Now he works out for only the big markets ! Snubs everyone picking 3 -5!! Minny picks @ 3 and look like they want a big!! Bayless is a lock for Seattle and Memphis have drafted mayo types the last 2 years!
Can it be? Can we get him?( Maimi seems interested but if Mayo is not there that means Beasley or Rose drop! Doubt it!!)
Maybe not at six but with some creative maneuvers we should be able to get the # 3 pick from Minnesota or the # 4 from Seattle ! Cant see Memphis drafting Mayo with the Guards they have!!
From what I have read Mchale is in love with Love!! He believes he would be the smartest pick for them! Love should be there for sure @ 6!
Now just give them what else they want and # 6 and get Mayo!
Or trade Crawford to Seatle and swap picks with them then swap picks with the Wolves again throwing in something they want to make it work!
Draft Mayo trade Randolph to 1 of the many teams that seam interested in him and add another pick in this draft! Philly @ 19 would get us a young big with some talent! Koufos comes to mind! If he aint there Abika or Jordan Mcgee anyone of them can pan out!
If all this can just come together maybe we can form a squad with a potential superstar on it! Which since Ewing we have not had!! Mix some Mayo with some D'Atoni add a little Walsh and we might have the recipe for a Perfect Storm...........
