The New York Knicks have not exactly had the best of luck in these past few NBA Draft nights, as they appear to have missed out on a couple NBA superstars.
It is quite hard to perform below expectations when you set the bar ridiculously low, as the 2018-19 New York Knicks did. After tying their worst ever franchise record, 17-65, it seems like the only way now is up.
Having failed to qualify for the playoffs every season since 2012-13, watching the Knicks play basketball has not been pretty.
On a team where drama never seems to be absent, it would certainly not be an over-exaggeration to call the Knicks the main laughingstock of the NBA world.
The cherry on top would definitely have to be the Kristaps Porzingis trade that occurred this past season. This caused countless reactions from people surrounding the NBA cosmos, most of them hilariously criticizing the Knicks for their actions.
Perhaps the biggest reason behind this mockery is the fact that the Knicks have not drafted well these past few years…or ever, to be exact. You’d think that a team with three top-10 selections in the past four years would be close to being relevant, right? Well, unfortunately not through their own drafting.
As a result, let’s analyze the most recent selections made by the New York Knicks and take a look at who they should’ve drafted instead.
