View Full Version : BCP Mock Draft Pick #8 (New York Knicks)
05-27-2009, 08:52 PM
With 5 out of the first 7 picks being Guards, do we see the Knicks pick Jordan Hill after amazingly falling this low, or do they stay true to their promise and take Steph Curry?
I say Steph...sorry Jordan.

NY gets Lebrons favorite prospect & a player perfect for their offence.

ESPN Depth Chart
PG: Chris Duhon / Nate Robinson
SG: Larry Hughes / Quentin Richardson
SF: Wilson Chandler / Joe Crawford / Danilo Gallinari
PF: Al Harrington / Jared Jeffries / Chris Wilcox
C: David Lee / Eddy Curry / Courtney Sims
Not a very strong point for the Knicks. Nate is a good energy man but he's not big enough to be a full time guy getting heavy minutes. Duhon has pretty good assist numbers but doesn't really bring much to the table as far as scoring goes
Another weak(er) position for the Knicks. Neither Hughes nor Richardson are high level scorers like you would imagine from a D'Antoni offense. SG is the likeliest choice for this team.
Wilson Chandler was one of the most impressive guys for the Knicks last year. He's a big strong guy that plays solid defense and is a fan favorite. Crawford isn't anything special and Danilo is looking like a marginal talent at best.
Al Harrington is a 20pt scorer--exactly what D'Antoni wants. He's better than people give him credit for. Wilcox is another guy I've liked for awhile and is a capable backup. Jeffries is a nice energy guy off the bench.
David Lee is their starter here even though he's a PF. Dude is a double-double machine and one of the most popular guys to hear about in trade rumors. Eddy Curry is a black hole (literally) and Courtney SIms is nothing special either.
Stephen Curry. No, I don't think he's good enough to go this high. But he's basically the perfect guy for this system. High scorer, 3 point shooter, weak defense. They could use depth at any position and Jordan Hill would be really nice--making David Lee expendable for some added depth at other positions but I doubt the Knicks are that smart. Earl Clark would also be a really good choice for them but they'll draft Curry and he'll average around 20 points next year with the Knicks scoring over 105 points a night.

I have to go Curry here. One, he fits the Coach's system. And two, King James is a fan and NY will do anything possible to lure him after 2010.

I voted Curry... now I feel dirty.

Okay with the slim margin of victory, the Knicks select Stephen Curry!
#9 will be up shortly
