Been my guy for a while but I may have to admit that Barrett is better. I am enamoured with his size. Listed as a 6'8 SG, and Barret a 6'7 SF but you never know. Measurements always screwed up this early. I think both are 6'7 and both can play either wing position.

Agreed though, you get into the top 3 and you got a shot at either of these players. I like Nassid little too. Not as offensively skilled but has a huge motor and developing offensive skill. Probably has more of a Butler or Kuwai learning curve.

I was pretty excited to see what Knox and Frank would do this season, and sure liked Lance, Lee, and Hardaway but, Fuck man- Kawhi AND Butler with KP back in time for the playoffs?!? DYNASTY! I've never been more excited! For all my doubts about Perry making the Knicks a north eastern Magic, he really pulled it together by getting some assets and then trading them for disgruntled All Stars looking to play in the best city with the best fans. Its great that he realized the New York market will always be our biggest draw and the Knicks play by different rules. Way to fucking go!

That's my alternative reality where the Knicks somehow dont suck.

Hopefully, Im proven wrong, and maybe a Butler trade was never going to happen, but the market price for those guys seemed way, way cheaper than it should be based on what they bring to the table. Is Derozan much better than THJ? As good as Marrakennan is, he was really just a pick trade that moved the Bulls up a few slots. I think picks were undervalued up until the Howard, Iggy, Aflalo, Bynum trade or so, but now are overvalued. Most picks turn out like Mario and Noah, far, far below those optimistic projections from draftexpress. While Philly is brought up again, again, and again as a model, it seems to me that the key ingredient to last seasons success was 'shortest arms in the NBA" JJ Reddick finally getting out of CPs shadow and showing himself as one of the craftiest veterans in the league. Just from an age perspective, until you hit 30, its really tough to be a leader and win. Even if your name is Michael Jordan or Lebron James.

And yeah, I do believe the New York market is different. Remember that profile article of Melo chomping on a cigar, talking about his business empire? The chances of that going down anywhere else are pretty nil. To be an All Star you pretty much need to have a super sized ego (unless you have an deep, deep secret that would get you ostracized without the protection of your organization, ahem, Tim Duncan). Soto use the same play book without realizing that, you know, its New fricking York, seems stupid to me.
