Earlier today the Knicks held a workout for Texas Tech’s two-way wing, Jarrett Culver. Here at Posting & Toasting we’ve done all we can to show that both he and R.J. Barrett are talented players. By and large we seem to think the edge goes to Culver, in part because he brings the effort on both sides of the ball. It’s hardly unanimous for all of us, but we like what we see from each kid.
After the workout there was a media scrum where Culver immediately took an inadvertent pot shot at Barrett when asked what he would focus in on as a rookie.

Here he's talking about how he'd be able to contribute as a rookie and how his jumper is coming along: pic.twitter.com/dlGNkFkpF8— Mike Vorkunov (@MikeVorkunov) June 5, 2019
If you didn’t know, Barrett doesn’t really give much effort on the defensive end (hold on to your “but’s”). New Yorkers used to identify with that type of energy. I guess now that no one that lives in the city is from the city, things done changed. Despite the dog in our attitude, New Yorkers remain a chivalrous bunch. As such I think we all want to do whatever it takes to have Jarrett reunited with his EYBL teammate, Mitchell Robinson. The Block-ness Monster and The Pulverizer. Streets are in need.

In addition, I selfishly need Culver to the Knicks at three because I need the crying Knicks kid to cry his pathetic tears until his eyes flow completely free of his theatrical skull. Anyone else that wants to cry about Culver can meet me at the changing table, where I will personally change your diaper.
He would certainly add a lot of pop to a team in desperate need of... everything. He’s also no stranger to the electricity of that iconic floor. So don’t treat him like one, Scott Perry.
Culver has a few more meetings coming up with the top seven teams. If I haven’t made my thoughts clear all season: draft this man!
