John Schmeelk’s running diary of last night’s NBA Draft and a detailed analysis of the Knicks picks.
The NBA Draft was taking its sweet time on Thursday night, so by the time Steve Somers hit the airwaves the Knicks were still a few picks away. But that didn’t stop the Schmoozer from breaking down the early first-round picks in a way only he can.
With Boomer out taking a day to himself ( translation: a reprieve from his radio partner), Craig was on his own to cover a whole myriad of topics, beginning with the Knicks using the 17th selection in last night’s NBA draft to take guard Iman Shumpert out of Georgia Tech.
As the Knicks count down the hours to the NBA draft, they can’t help but feel somewhat powerless. The one sure-fire way the team can get who they really want? By trading up.
Sorry, Knicks fans. The Suns are again shooting down Steve Nash trade rumors. In an email on Wednesday, Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said: “We are not trading Steve Nash, period, exclamation point.”
The Nets are heading into the NBA Draft having taken much of the uncertainty out of the event. While they will have the 27th and 36th picks Thursday night, the Nets made their big move four months ago when they dealt for All Star point guard Deron Williams.
The NBA will hold its annual draft tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, and Craig admitted to Boomer that he is not all that into it. Why? He said this year’s draft lacks any kind of juice.
If he had to choose between the Jazz and Knicks, BYU standout Jimmer Fredette says it’s New York by a narrow margin.
Which frontcourt players might be available for the Knicks to draft at No. 17? Between small forwards, power forwards and centers, there are quite a few players that might still be on the board.
Which backcourt players might be available for the Knicks to draft at No. 17? John Schmeelk has scoured the scouting reports and consolidated all the information in one neat package for you die-hard Knicks fans.
Newark’s Prudential center is a gorgeous new building — one that will soon be without an NBA franchise. The search is on for Mayor Cory Booker.
On Monday, as the Nets hosted their final workout prior to Thursday’s NBA draft, two rivals found themselves battling once again, this time for attention from the handful of scouts and Nets brass watching their every move.
The Knicks don’t have a draft pick in the top half of the first round this year (finally), yet this selection will be as important as any in recent memory.
With a new arena and a new fan base, Johnson isn’t exactly looking for a new start – just to build on the progress his team has already begun to make.
Jimmer Fredette likes the Knicks’ run-and-gun system. Too bad he might not fall to New York at No. 17 in this month’s NBA draft.
