boy those clowns in the audience made Knick fans look real stupid. Yea lets boo a guy weve never seen play and know nothing about because hes not a big name. The new regime is in place, can we give them a chance before we start booing and get negative! If mayo was there they wouldnt of taken him, but he wasnt so get over it. the Kid could be the next Dirk or he could be the next bust,but at least he has a high ceiling, unlike the other guys we could of drafted who may have been solid, but you knew what you were getting, the Knicks dont need another solid player they need a star and face to the franchise.

This was the right pick. Gordon will be a bust. Bayless doesn't have Gallinari's upside.

Fixing the Knicks will mean two more years of losing, then adding Lebron James.

The key now is moving the bad contracts.(Jeffries, Richardson) and the expensive big guys (Randolph, Curry)

A team like Milwaukee would benefit from Randolph. Chicago could use Curry back.

Good job. The team isn't set- let's give it some time. Why take a guard that doesn't fit for the sake of taking a guard?

Well N.Y. that's Donnie Walsh for ya. All he does is takes SF's in the draft even though in this years draft that was clearly the Knicks least biggest need!!!!!!!!

And don't worry, he did the exact same thing in Indiana. One year after he'd just gotten the steal of the draft in SF Danny Granger he did exactly what he did in this draft. Picked up another young small forward. Then he got the Pacers stuck with 4 small forwards.
