Great move Isiah, he's a leader and a great shooter.

Hmm...so Isiah basically got 3 picks in this draft...Chandler, Morris, and Nichols. I wonder what Nichols can do but if he can sit at the 3 point line, hit shots, and play defense, he's a welcome addition to the team.

Well I guess I can speak from educated knowledge on this one. I went to SU and watch all the games. Now dont get it twisted I'm not biaised cuz I probably hate on the Orangemen as much as the next man (for their underachieving as of late).

I was highly disappointed when I thought that Portland got our pic at 52. I was like "Damn they got Nichols".

Ladies and Gentleman we've gotten one of the steals of the draft. He's a specialty player. Great shooter. This dude can flat out shoot the lights out. Hes not going to go in the post and bang bodies, nor will he cross you up and take it to the whole. He is a fast break, and spot shooter. Adds a different element to the knicks. Welcome on board.

Quick Question...Why did Alando Tucker drop so low. Did he piss someone off? LOL.

This is a great move.

Nichols went 53rd that proves how deep of a draft this really was. My draft night was awesome!

Thank you Isiah.

From what little I knew about the draft prospects I had Nichols, Chandler, Benelli or whatever his name is and Almond along with a few guys in a cluster.

I think Isiah might have had 3 of the best drafts in a row if you add in the trades and signings we have gotten so far.

Curry
Morris
Lee
Nate
Balkman
Collins
Zach Randolph he's only 26??
Chandler
Nichols

I think that's pretty good if you would have just considered getting those guys in the draft itself.

I'm really sorry to see Frye go, he's a good guy and I wish him well, too bad.

Sounds like we just got the lights-out shooter we needed.

Hopefully we can get rid of the rest of the dead wood in trades - especially Jerome (Jessie _ I stole the money & can't believe I ate the whole thing) James and Jarid (Horrid) Jeffries.

I like Nichols but this kid can do his thing now and should be able to. Id rather see him play then jeffries. Another move is coming.

Either 2 things can happen.

This whole this is just to get Kobe cuz Zach is more valueble then Francis and we have more pieces to get him

OR..

Zeke tries to make it work and get a 2 that can play D and knock down 3's and I feel hes puttin Lee at the 3 as well. Move Q to the bench and Go as follows.




Eddy Curry
Zach Randolph
David Lee
Pietris(this kind of guy)
Marbury

Mardy Jamal and Nate should be gone for next season
Q
Balkman
Jeffries

Reserves
Dan Dickau
Nichols
Chandler

Screw the rest

just wanted to post the link to nbadraft.nets analysis of him, i'll also post a little of his strengths here...He looks like what we need to me.

Strengths: Moves well without the ball working off screens and picks … Has legit NBA three point range on his jumper … Has the potential to be a quality defender … Excels shooting off the dribble from mid-range … Smooth player who makes difficult plays look easy … Solid athlete who has good leaping ability with long arms which allow him to be a adequate shot blocker … Excellent free throw shooter … Does a decent job of using fakes and hesitation shots to draw fouls … Patient player who doesn’t force the action, simply lets the game come to him … Nichols is an explosive scorer capable of putting up big points … Athletically he is sound but not what you would call explosive … Although not dominating, Nichols does a solid job of rebounding the ball … Coachable player with a solid work ethic and has improved greatly over the course of four years … Has really become a much more confident player in his abilities … For his size there are few who have his ability to shoot from the outside …

Ok, so those are all his strengths...basically a very good, 6'8" SF who can shoot the lights out. Also, they rate him an 88 out of 100 overall...just for some comparison...Jared Dudley got an 89, so did Wilson Chandler, Morris Almond and Afflalo were both 90s...obviously this draft was kinda stacked (or nbadraft.net does a somewhat shabby job of the rating system...cuz i don't think i saw anyone under 85 haha). Still, if their ratings are decent, we got a late 1st round value in the 2nd round, via trade. Guess this draft, like most, really just depended on team needs and who they value more. Still, exciting stuff

From what I read those guys were all lumped in the same group and we did get tremendous quality for were we picked.

Guys are going to be out of a job on the Knicks and I expect to see another trade down the road.

I really don't expect to see Nate and Rose on the roster this season.

Maybe Isiah envisions these guys as SG's too and goes with a really big lineup making it impossible to match up against.

Collins at ping 6'6", our SG at 6'8", SF 6'8", PF 6'9" and C at close to 7'. That's a lot of big bodies but not necessarily that much height, it will work if they play more zone D.

Low risk very high reward gettin this guy. I remember saying he'd be a steal in the draft long ago in a previous post.Just didnt think he'd be a steal for us! GO NY GO NY GO. He's improved alot each year he was at CUSE. I hop he kjeeps that trend up. He can flat out score and he fits into our system well.

You think he can make the team?
I think he can grow to be actually start with us bcuz of his shooting ability
and the fact that he is athletic so the desire to defense to make him jump into the rotation later in time.
I might like him more then Chandler.
