"Now, this is quite an idea!" I thought to myself. "I should steal this shit!"
So I did. Although I'm saying that I did, so is that really stealing?
The NBA draft is approaching fast, and every year there are a handful of players who fall farther than they should, and end up making a team with a pick in the 20-40 range very happy. It's easy to say, "Oh man, this kid Ricky Rubio is going to be a stud." Duh, but what about some of the lesser known guys -- sleepers if you will. There is no better feeling than 'pimping your sleeper' before the draft and either a) seeing him drafted by your team and succeeding, or b) drafted by another team and succeeding, prompting the "I told ya so" statement a year later.
So, this is your forum. This is your stage to "Pimp Your Prospect" before the draft. If you drop a sleeper's name in the comment box, they will live forever in the Liberty Ballers archives. A year or two down the road we can come here and say, "Wow, the Legend was on the money about Dionte Christmas!"
Why not do the same thing over here? Us Knicks fans are pretty NCAA savvy. I know most of you out there have a favorite sleeper from a mid major or your favorite NCAA team or even just someone that you have a man-crush on. Pimp them here. Let the rest of us know who you'd like to see in that oh-so-beautiful blue and orange come October.
(Of course, you Posting and Toasting faithful, this is going to be mostly hypothetical. No second round pick (for now) means none of these guys will be playing in MSG next year. But hey. It's still fun.)
I suppose I shall start. I'd personally love to see Jeff Pendergraph become a Knick.
