Well, you do need rotation players.
Personally, I really have no idea if knicks made right choice, but I don't like the rationale for decision. Knicks need lots of player. They gave away all their talent to Denver. So the Knicks shouldn't be picking for need....just talent mainly. So to hear Grunwald say "we are picking for defense", I think that's a bad sign.....just pick the best talent.
I mean, Shumpert could be good, but, of course, he was the first pick in the draft where the analysts were saying "Shumpert's a reach at this draft spot."
We'll see. Usually you have to wait 2 years to see how these picks pan out anyway. I personally wanted Knicks to try to get more size, but whatever.
