The New York Knicks have had very little luck regarding the NBA Draft during these past decades, making some mistakes that might haunt them forever.
Where to begin, am I right? Unfortunately, the New York Knicks seem to have become an NBA laughing stock. From ownership drama all the way to free agency blunders, the entire situation in New York appears to be dysfunctional.
The cherry on top is that the New York Knicks have done a terrible job at drafting their future organizational pieces. Whether you call it poor scouting or simply getting caught in the hype bubble that some players carry, the lack of young stars has always been apparent.
But, as with every other aspect in life, optimism is still the key for the almighty Knicks. Since they are in a rebuilding phase, top picks will keep on coming their way. They just have to find a better way of utilizing them.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the biggest draft mistakes the organization has made in the past. You know, a tutorial of what NOT to do.
