Knicks are basically bringing their entire front office to the Lottery, why would they do this if they are expected to get the #8 overall pick.
This is nothing more than David Stern and Nike's plan to place Ricky Rubio with the Knicks to better promote him in a system where he can flourish and be considered as somewhat of a savior to the Knicks.
Watch the Pete Maravich comparisons return due to the Nike marketing machine.
Ricky also has his own brand of Nike shoes which would probably be coming to a shoe store near you before his rookie season begins.

I dont and never have believed its a true lottery system.
I personally believe David Stern & others decide the Lottery before it takes place to place certain teams and players in good situations.
Seriously how ****ed would the league be if the Suns ended up with the #1 pick?
By drafting Blake Griffin or Ricky Rubio either will be coming off the bench for their first season and its hard for the NBA to promote their #1 pick if hes a 6th Man.
Chances are Knicks get Rubio and Thunder get Griffin because it seems so right.
