After Chris Mannix said on a podcast that Kyrie Irving might be interested in joining the Knicks next season, the NBA world went into a bit of a frenzy. When reporters started questioning the very philosophical minded Irving on his contract status for next year, Irving was predictably ominous. That led to lots of speculation that Kyrie would be on his way out of Boston and headed to the Knicks next offseason, but something doesn't add up. And it's the math.
Trae Young may not be the top prospect on any big boards heading into this year’s NBA draft, but he may be the most polarizing.
As the New York Knicks 2017-2018 season unraveled, people began to talk about something that has become a bit of a trend following the all-star break the past few years. Where will they pick in the draft? Knicks fans are some of the most passionate fans in the NBA, and I’m sure they hate the fact that this has become a trend for their team recently. They do have a few things going for them though. One, they are in New York City. It hasn’t been a destination of choice for top free agents as of late, but it could be, should be, and probably will be again very soon. Two, they hired a terrific coach in David Fizdale. He is extremely well-respected amongst the players in the league and could help draw seom top talent that could turn this thing around. Lastly, the Knicks do have some good, young talent, but lack star power, especially with Kristaps Porzingis being sidelined with a knee injury. So where do they go from here?
