Our mock drafts are unique in that I will attempt to customize the remarks specifically toward the interest of Knicks fans.
Our official pick is eight. But increasingly speculation is growing that the Knicks have something up their sleeve. Let's specualate based on the latest information.
#1)Lakers from Clips - Blake Griffin. The Lakers dump Bynum on the Clips to retool with a more inexpensive piece allowing for the resigning of Ariza and Odom for Phil Jackson's last year as head coach.
#2) Memphis (to NY) - Stephon Curry. Memphis will trade #2 and Darko for #8 and Mobley realizing a financial windfall in the transaction. Curry joins soon to be signed Steve Nash as NY's new backcourt.
#3) OKC - Hasheem Thabeet. OKC happily sticks.
#4) Sacramento - Ricky Rubio.
#5) Washington (to NY) - James Hardin. NY rebuilds the backcourt. Mike James and #5 swapped for Duhon and cash. Duhon moves closer to the White House. James a buyout.
#6) Dallas via Minnesota - Jordan Hill. Minnesota as usual trades something of worth for crap.
#7) Golden State - Earl Clark. Any taker of Cory Maggette's contract might buy this pick.
#8) Memphis via New York - Tyler Hansbrough. Memphis grabs their PF.
#9) Toronto - James Johnson Toronto bank on size and need. From WY, Johnson might be a great fit in Toronto. This pick could easily be moved.
#10) Milwaukee - Tyreke Evans.
#11) New Jersey - Chase Budinger. Thorn rolls the dice.
#12) Charlotte - Gerald Henderson. Best talent on the board.
#13) Indiana - Jennings.
#14) Phoenix - Eric Maynor. Looking past Nash.
#15) Detroit - Jonny Flynn.
#24) Knicks from Portland) Dejuan Blair. Knicks acquire Sergio Rodriguez and this pick for cash and minor roster fill.
Ye Newe Glory-torium
Here, dear readers, is the final resting place of all weary Knicks fans. Yes, here is where one comes when James Dolan extends yet another contract, when the Knicks trade for yet another ambulatory star, or when said fan simply hits 'rock' bottom. In short, "the ship be" eternally "sinking" here. Welcome aboard, rearrange the deck chairs as you please.
