The Knicks drafted Mitchell Robinson with the 36th pick

Welcome, Mitchell! With the 36th pick in the 2018 draft, the New York Knicks selected Mitchell Robinson. Robinson is kind of a mystery man — he committed to Western Kentucky University for his freshman year, but dropped out of school just before the season to instead focus on training for the draft. It was an eyebrow-raiser at the time, and quite frankly kind of unprecedented, considering he didn’t even opt to play professionally overseas a la Brandon Jennings or Emmanuel Mudiay. Here’s the good things: he was ranked 11th in the 2017 ESPN basketball recruiting rankings out of high...

2018 NBA Draft Diary

Dear Diary... “It is the longest day of the year.” That’s how Rece Davis greeted viewers at the start of last night’s NBA Draft. It was a longer day for some people (Michael Porter Jr.; Robert Williams III) than others, including Knick fans like me, for whom draft night is our playoffs. Once Kristaps Porzingis went down with his ACL injury, my focus narrowed to two nights: the lottery (where the Knicks never win) and the draft (where they do okay, generally). It’s felt like an eternity. So many feelings, questions, and complaints. So I kept a real-time draft diary. I’ll show...
