    If Bronny James were named Ronny Rhames (Ving's son?), he'd have never gotten a D-1 scholarship let alone be talked about as being an NBA draft pick.
    Yes, he still would've gotten a D-1 scholarship.

    I saw him play in person, only once though, but on TV a few times. He can play and he earned a D-1 Scholarship.
    Though, I don't think he's a NBA player right now. But, he has time to improve and make it. I do agree that if his last name wasn't James he would not get Drafted.

    Knicks just traded 5 firsts and Bojan for Mikal Bridges. Not sure how I feel about that.
    high price in terms of draft capital for a guy who's never been an all-star. amazingly it's the fourth trade all-time between the Knicks and Nets and first since 1983.
    That is an absolute monster of a deal for the Nets. Good for them for realizing they need to start over. Sorta glad the Sixers did not give that much up?

    But also seems like a good short term deal for Knicks too, however they now are likely not going to be able to add another star player. So we'll see how that works out for them.

    I love Bridges. I fucking love the Villanova Wildcats. Pains me to see so many god damned National Champions on that stupid team. Hopefully Thibbs runs them into the ground again. 
    now they should see if they can get Phil Booth or an aging Scottie Reynolds for depth...
    Arcidiacono was on their g league team wasn't he?

    Always think it's funny how he was the main guy for years at Nova and now all his teammates are stars in the NBA and he's barely avoiding playing in Europe.
    Going back to 2009, I always thought Scottie Reynolds would be a pro in the NBA, always seemed like a winning player.
    Man I was a huge Scottie fan back then. Both him and Arch were just too small for the NBA though. 

    I just think it's gotta be a strange feeling for them seeing their teammates excel more than them at a higher level. 
    In hindsight you might be right about Reynolds. It must be strange for people in Philadelphia to see Villanova guys on the Knicks since I assume most people there root for the Sixers and Villanova like here with St. John's and the Knicks.
    Actually most people around here resent Villanova. Since the school is a measly 10 miles outside city limits and is more nationally known than the other local schools, people like to make fun of them for not being a "Philly School". Alas, they're just jealous of all the National Championships though. lol

    For me, it's definitely a strange feeling. But at least it's not the Celtics...
    I could see that, I never really thought of it that way since Villanova plays home games in the Sixers arena.
    There's not a whole lot of logic associated with the argument, believe me. They have three banners hanging from the rafters in there. 

    To be fair, a lot of the resentment stems from Rollie Massimino sort of dismantling the Big 5 back in the 80's. But that was a million years ago. Get over it. lol
    Juggs, sorry all your fellow alma mater are on the Knicks.

    Looks like OG is staying. That team is going to be a defensive juggernaut.

    Useless picks as the Knicks will not be lottery picks. 
    I wouldn't be so sure of that.
    The picks are for 2025, 27, 29 and 31 (with an unprotected swap for 28). The 2025 pick likely won't be a lottery pick, but beyond that, any of those others could be. This smells a lot like the Nets/Celtics trade for Pierce and Garnett that ended up netting the C's Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum with the foolishly unprotected picks.
    Huge win for the Nets in my book. Bridges isn't exactly the missing piece to a championship for the Knicks. If you are making this trade for a player like say Anthony Davis or Joel Embiid, a guy who plays a position the Knicks lack a top caliber player at, then this pick haul makes sense. Bridges is redundant to the Knicks roster makeup position wise and as noted above by Xavier has never been an all-star. Stupid move in my opinion. But hey, another Villanova guy, yay.
    I'm trusting Leon here.  Dude seems to know what hes doing.
    Even after paying OG 40+mil a year for 5 years? That is a desperation move. Love OG's fit, but his game is basically like if Luol Deng and Bruce Bowen had a baby. You don't drop 200 mil on that. Especially not at probably 50 to 60 games a season. Then you still have Hartenstein to worry about. Not holding my breath on him though. I think there is a team out there that will pay him more than what the bird rights allow the Knicks to pay. 

    With the Bridges trade, I'm just not a fan of gambling the future. Not for Bridges. Like @Poncier said, '25 is the only guaranteed non-lottery there. Brunson and Randle can walk after next season and that's it.. we're rebuilding again and the rest of those picks will be in the lottery. Although I think Randle will be gone soon anyway. 

    All that to say, I'm not an NBA GM, so here's to Leon being right.

    It's the 55th pick. At that point do you take a gamble at some dude hoping he becomes a star, or do you make sure LeBron is happy and sell jerseys?

    The talent coming from overseas is wayyy better than he was.  Players are turning pro at 16 and having played with men for 3 years before entering the draft.  That was the reason for the G league here. Get players more playing time to develop since everyone is a one and done now.

    Unless you're a white center, then you stay for 4 years in school...
