Signings you irrationally want the Knicks to make

This past College Basketball season, while the world was atwitter with Jimmer fever, I had a different obsession.  And he wasn't a nice little Mormon from upstate New York.  He was a largely unknown PG from Ohio with a high top fade.  A high top fade.

This monster is Norris Cole, and he was the only player I wanted the Knicks to draft this year.  

I came across a Cleveland State game on ESPN 5 one day, with them down by ~10.  Cole told his opponent to stop bringing the Kool-Ade to the adults table, and he started knocking down a whole manner of shots to win the game.  My interest in Norris was piqued, so I searched for Cleveland St. games I could watch, legally or otherwise.  I saw that one was being broadcasted on ESPN 2 the next weekend, so the stage was set.  

In that game, I'm pretty sure he played the entire first half, and he torn shit up.  I wish I could remember when the game was or who they were playing so I could find his exact line, but alas, you'll just have to believe me that he was an absolute beast.  They lost the game late, but that doesn't change his performance.

So I ask you guys, who are some people you'd love to get, but have no rational for it?  Norris displayed so much PutDaTeamOnMyBack in every game of his I watched, I would love to have him on the team.

Some highlights, highlighting both his play and hair.
