One of the beauties of social media is the friendships you can make. John Henson is a big time Knicks fan and he sent me this tweet yesterday, "#knicks have won 11 of 15, tied for 3rd in east, on pace for 47.5 wins w/ 1st rd pick & room for max FA next yr"
It was so spot on that I had to write about it.
Seriously, what more could you ask for as we speak right now when talking about the New York Knicks? They've drafted the franchise player in Kristaps Porzingis, they have a player in Carmelo Anthony who can still be a top 10-15 player in the entire league on any given night and they have a former MVP in Derrick Rose who is starting to show signs of his former self. They have a bench filled with players who can come in and contribute at a moment's notice and a coach who is pressing all the right buttons.
Moving forward, they have all of their first round draft picks if they want to get aggressive and make an upgrade trade, and they have three picks in this upcoming draft, which may be as deep 1-50 as the 2015 draft that saw them land Porzingis, Jerian Grant and Willy Hernangomez.
