Whats going to happen?
Quinnen Williams. #3
Memphis traded Mike Conleast yesterday, clearing up a need for Ja Morant "Not Durant" . Meaning I doubt they trade that to the Pels who would love pairing RJ and Zion.
So barring a Pelicans trade for the #2 to pair up witht he #1 selection in tonights NBA draft, the Knicks, picking 3rd, are likely to select RJ Barrett out of Duke.
"Are you all in, Pio"
You know I am.
Although Zion "Toothless from How to Train your Dragon" WIlliamson
isnt going to be a knick. thats ok
At the begnning of the year, RJ was the #1 prospect coming into the NBA.. Obviously Zion did Zion things and he deserves to go 1. My qualm isnt with you, Zion, its with The Pelicans/ NBA owned Pelicans not deserving that #1 spot.. but i digress.
I'll take RJ. I'll take RJ-any-day. He wants to be a new yorker, the guy set a record for points by a freshman in the ACC.. a record that has been in place for nearly 30 years. He put up trip doubles with cheese. Doub Doubs with a chocolate milk. Hes got the size
19 years old, standing tall at 6 7, averaging 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.... Im glad to convince myself to love this guy.
Some other justifiTAKEcions?
He can speak french and his godfather is Steve Nash. And although i grew up hating and still hate French, I do love Steve Nash.
I dont like RJ's 30% from three point nor his 66% from free throws. I also hate his jumper. BUt, hey. Beggers cant be choosers. only Shmoozers. And I can convince myself to look past it all.
Thursday + RJ
better energy tonight.
Fuck you Pelicans and your second first overall draft pick in 8 years. We havent had one in 30+ years. Dont mistake my good energy for a weakness, NBA. Just cause the Knicks can sell out MSG every night, doesnt mean you gotta help the Cans' with their Can(t) do attitude.
I do love that we rejected the Chris Paul trade. Thats a good show of faith. Good show of direction.
Am i still going? You bet your ass.
But what else can you do when all you got is good energy and an uncomfortable pillow keeping you sane.
Love you all.
