Isaiah Briscoe just made a move to the basket and made a shot through contact with to defenders in the air on him. I hope we get this kid in the 2nd round.

Monk and Fox aren't really blowing me away, but they have the whole tournament to do it.

Monk struggling. I think Don Che said it but when Monk's shots not falling, he's not really helping the team in any other way. 2 rebs, 1 asst. Briscoe got 17pts, 7rebs, 2asts, 2stls, 1blk, 1to.

Considering Frank's Euroball background, I can believe this one at least. Frank isn't only just a hidden stud of a point guard, but he also knows how to adjust him game to a system because of his Euro-based fundamental learnings.

And we know how Phil has been with Euro players lately

True. But if New York ends up with the 4th or 5th pick, wouldn't it be "too early" to pick Ntilikina?

True, but Frank hasn't been to the draft combine and workouts yet. His scouting report is low due to his "international scouting unknowns." His stock could rise to that Top 5 via workouts, I have a feeling it could.

That being said, I also agree with you........if any of the other Top 3 PGs are the board at 5, I'll consider them first

I agree with big j, Frank has been impressive but his stock will depend largely on combine results. His athleticism is his biggest question mark so he could really skyrocket. I hadn't heard of KP in March 2015.

I'd love to see KU and Kentucky play in the tournament. KU's backcourt looked incredible in this second half.

I would say so. If the Knicks want him maybe trade back and get another asset especially since teams at 4 will be salivating over Tatum

Frank in these highlights I've seen looks slow and will struggle to get past NBA level defenders . Workouts will be huge

Yea two best back courts in the tourney. I think Kansas is the better overall team, but it would be great to watch

I don't like the idea of trading back (within the lottery) if there's a guy you like. If Frank is the guy then take him with your pick and don't mess around, if there's someone better on the board then take them.

I was speaking more as a Knicks fan than an NCAA fan, I'd love to see it for scouting reasons.

If they like Frank I'd still trade back. For example if it is to move back 1 spot and get frank there. Knicks have leverage here. Say if a team wants tatum scare them off and have them give up a lot while moving back a spot. for example a team like Orlando gets pick 5 they need a scorer somebody who can get there own shot so I think they'd rate Tatum very high. Get back pick 5 and somethign else really good future 1st maybe
