There's still a chance to get a good player at 6, but considering how bad this team was, it has to be a disappointment to finish that low.
You can go into every draft in the past and find players that "are" going to be superstars. Lebron was on a different plane.
As bad as the Knicks are, they are not "one" player away much in the way that Chicago is...they've been rebuilding the correct way for years now.
I think this could actually be a good thing in that we most likely will get a good player but not one that will effect our place in the standings. Meaning next year we'll have a shot probably at a top 3.
When we got Ewing we never got a chance to get another top young player for him to grow with ...
