Know we know why the Knicks are so bad, Isiah is pretty stupid when it comes to this draft process. Remember balkman? They actually spent a pick on him. If they had the #1 pick they'd chose someone who went back to school! Thats how in the dark this team seems to be!

Can't wait for this new crop to hit cardboard!!!!
