The Almost Knicks

As I watch highlights of Ricky Rubio doing all we dreamed he would do in another uniform, I just went back to think about all the guys we almost drafted the past couple years... just to have them be whisked away just before we can get our hands on them.

I dont watch college ball other then some tourney games... so for me to know about a player, it means that the knicks are very much thinking about drafting them

2011: too soon to tell anything
2010: was there even a draft this year? I dont remember.
2009: Knicks were targeting Rubio and Curry and they got picked right before our picks. Both of which are now awesome.
2008: aside from Gallo we were also targeting Westbrook. Who is pretty awesome.

There isnt much of a point to this. Other then to give some credit to Donnie Walsh and Co for really picking it in the drafts they were in. They swung and missed on Hill... but the rest have all worked out and if they had gotten who they really wanted in some of those others (none of which were players that were expected to be stars. they all were thought to still be around when the knicks picked).

I wish we had gotten rubio.
