John Wallace and Dontae Jones.

Did the Knicks ever screw up that draft.

John Wallace was the TRUTH in college. Cant knock the Knicks for drafting the local hero.

You must not have watched either during the NCAA regular season cause they both were killing people all year.

They both also had poor practice habits and work ethic. Especially Jones.

Wasn't Christian Laettner was drafted 3rd overall for his performance in the tournament?

Bryce Drew from Valpo would have been drafted regardless. Dont think that highlight made him a draft pick. If you watch college bball he made noise. He may have helped himself as far as his stock is concerned but he was a first round prospect before the tourney.




if you dont remember, KVH had a huge tourney. he won a couple games on last second shots so wtf r u talking about

Yeah and thats why he was drafted because if not for the tourney he would be a 2nd round pick, alte first at best.
