Nobody is talking bull sh*t about balkman now right
 
i knew this was a good pick. people was talking mad sh*t about balkman. look how he played in the summer league. u mean to tell me this wasnt a good pick. i knew this was a good pick. he was playin with a lot of energy and he was playin good defense during the summer league. they didnt draft him to score buckets.he is exactly what the knicks need. if isiah is smart he should give him a good amount of minutes during the season.

Let the man play a Regular Season game before you start slobbing his nob. Seriously. That goes for all the picks in the draft. Show and Prove.

brooklynchild155 07-14-2006 02:16 PM

trust me he's goin to do his thing in the regular season. and all the people that was bashing him is goin to take back what they said.

Balkman didnt do much that was impressive in the SL. Even if he did, it wasnt a good pick because he was not going to be picked in the first round. On top of that, a lot of players that were picked after him are killing in the SL like Leon Powe and Marcus Williams. Balkman will never be a star. He will be nothing more than an energy bench player, which is always good to have, but it certainly wasnt worth the pick. They could have gotten him later and picked some one much better instead.

So far so good with Balkman. Hopefully him and David Lee can get some real play time this year. It will be hard but not impossible.

Playing good in the SL doesn't mean anything. Lets just wait and see how he plays during the regular season.

trade down
 
He may be a good talent and a great fit for the Knicks but Isiah could have picked him at 29 so why not try to trade down?

shafir 07-31-2006 02:45 PM

Isiah was under the impression that Phoenix was going to take him, before 29.

Did I ever say that AB is not going to be a bust? I didn't really like the pick that much myself. I would rather have Morrison. I think that there is a good chance that AB will be a bust. On the other hand though if he pans out then the Raps will have a top team in the East while the Knicks are still a lottery team.

How are the Raps gonna have the top team in the East because of AB? Because Mike James left, you guys really didnt gain anything, you lost James and traded V and got in return TJ Ford, and AB. You didnt get any better, you might have even gotten worse, considering how injury prone TJ is, and the risk you took with AB.
