curry or derozen?

if DeMar DeRozan falls to the #8 knicks do you think the knicks will still draft Stephen Curry?, curry from many rumors is said to be on top of knicks draft carts behind blake, and rubio.

i honestly feel if derozan is available at 8 they have to draft him. just because of his upside, curry plays a role that can be filled in by many other players, but derozan can some day have star power. i would draft jennings over both of them, but i feels his deff going to be gone by #8. their can be a real chance that derozan could be still on the board by the time the knicks pick.

not a need

i don't think the knicks want to get derozan just coz of his upside. i think they'd rather get someone who can play now. they need offensive weapons who can contribute now. and i think that's where curry fits in. i'm pretty sure derozan can be an all-star someday or be the next gerald green. the knicks are already waiting on on gallinari and i don't think they'd take on another prospect. also, curry can play the point and that's an issue the knicks would want to fix. duhon is not really a starter (as seen on his slowing down towards the end of the season).

i think i understand what ur

i think i understand what ur saying, but everyone in the draft is a prospect. if u meant to say project? then i would still disagree on that cause i think the knicks draft danilo over gordan last year because of his ability to step rite in and play now.

i understand the fact that the knicks want to add role players for james for 10-11, but don't u think they should get him first then start adding those role players. Rajon Rondo had one year under his belt before boston acquired allan and garnett, and rondo plays the point which is a much more difficult position to learn then sg.

and curry isn't really a point guard! Gilbert Arenas, Allen Iverson , Monta Ellis what do they all have in common? they r sg in pg bodys like curry. and none of them are winners, a team can't win with a small sg running the point, its all about them, they take bad shots a play little defense. in addition curry isn't going to be as nearly as good as any of those players, if people r thinking curry is going to be james's next mo williams, that's not going to happen cause curry needs to ball in his hand to produce, mo doesn't.

i agree

yeah, i get your point. but i think that the knicks would rather take on proven talent than risk the pick on potential. also, i think they're looking for solid shooters who have good strokes. gallinari according to mike d is the best shooter in the knicks team right now; also, curry is arguably the best shooter in the draft. he's a perfect fit in mike d's system. he's not played much pg right now but in his second year, he was able to play well at the pg position. he'll get there. he's going to be in a player-friendly offense and i think that would help develop his pg skills.

i think gallinari was chosen over gordon coz his dad was somehow connected to mike d. oh, maybe they didn't get gordon coz they still had crawford back then?

Curry

I think Derozen is overrated..Curry is unreal and can really shoot the ball. He shouldnt be a starter, but he will be an elite 6th man in the league. What does Derozen do good?? Yea, he looks good as an athlete and has good size, but remember Rodney Carney??? Exactly..he isnt a basketball player

Curry is a joke. He's this

Curry is a joke. He's this year's Kevin Love/Adam Morrison/JJ Redick. Media darling that gets drafted way too high and falls on his face in the pros.

i agree on the morrison and

i agree on the morrison and redick comparative, but kevin love looks pretty good, i don't think he'll be an all-star but a solid starter at the least. but i do agree with u, y would a team draft a future bench player with a top 10 pick.

Curry will be better than

Curry will be better than DeRozan. At the very least Curry can chew gum and walk at the same time. Something that DeRozan can't do. DeRozan has the BBIQ of a house brick. Curry is a flat out baller.

Curry i believe is a solid

Curry i believe is a solid pick for the Knicks but DeRozan will be a quality player. I just think that the Knicks are solid at the 2 and 3 spots right now and if they sign Lebron then Chandler or DeRozan will be on the bench and they still will have to adress their pg issues. Curry is the smart move here. The only thing they need next is a big man at the Center position because Eddy Curry is not the answer. They have pieces to trade and maybe they can pull it off next year
i wonder where Nate will go.

Curry is a flat out baller I think the Knicks should draft him over DeRozan (i think he is waayyy overrated). Curry fits the system and I believe he has a high BBall IQ which will allow him to play point in the NBA (unlike AI, Ellis or Arenas).....

DeRozan

This is a no-brainer he is obviously the more skilled and has more potential than Sthephen Curry. He is exactly what they need, a tall wing who can drive and maybe shoot. Stephen Curry is going to be the biggest bust in this draft, especially if he is picked in the lottery, he is an undersized SG who is turnover-prone.

DeRozan is more skilled than Curry??? Curry, shoots better, passes better, dribbles better.... DeRozan cant shoot threes, his handle is shaky and he has a low BBall IQ, so how is he going to fit in the Knicks system??? Curry's point guard skills are underrated, his teammates couldnt handle half of his passes....

derozan

it has to be Derozan. no question. Curry's ceiling is nowhere near Derozans. Derozan has franchise player potential. Whether or not he reaches it is up to him and is anyone's guess. Whoever takes Derozan will also acnowledge that he probably has higher bust potential than Curry. Curry can never be more than a sidekick. You cant build a franchise around him. For that reason i think you have to take Derozan.

I think......

Curry is a great player i mean his shot is rediculously good, passing is better than average, and also he can handle the ball. Thats more than you can say for DeRozan but DeRozen to me can be an All-Star one day if he works on his basketball skills. His athletic ability is on another level. You can teach skills but you can't teach athletic ability. I like Curry but if your the Knicks don't pass on the chance of taking a future talent like DeRozen

I would go with Curry

Curry has been playing against Pro's for years more than likely, because of dad. He will light it up when he is not triple teamed. That kid is going to shock people who just think he is a catch and shoot guy. I think Derozan needs a lot of work he has that P word that can be scary. Potential.

knicks shouldnt take derozan

knicks shouldnt take derozan or curry they got more than enough scorers and it seems like all the curry talk is deminishing the potential 20 ppg nate robinson ,instead they should take a versatile big man power forward or center maybe bj mullins,or earl clark even another true point guard would be better

earl clark? i mean i

earl clark? i mean i understand a true point or a big man but another sf? with the hope to add james in 10-11, they already havea ton of players that can play the sf position. al harrington, wilson changler, and gallinari. they r stacked at sf, and i hear a lot of people in other forums say the knicks are stacked at 2 and 3. i agree with the 3 position but who do they have at 2? they dont have a 2 other then larry hughes, who isn't going to be with the team after this coming season.

i feel the knicks needs or the 1,2, and 5 positions. i think the knicks got to draft a back court player with there first pick.

Depends

Derozan is more of a upside guy. Curry can shoot but to me...I dont like him. I dont see as a future NBA all-star PG.

DeRozan has all the ability to be another VC. Also, he played out of positon in college. He played at the 3 and most times the 4.

the chances of getting an

the chances of getting an all star in the draft is slim. if a team thinks a player can contribute right away like the knicks think curry can they should draft him. i mean 8 may be high for curry in another draft but he may be a top 10 player in THIS draft. derozan is all potential and knicks fans r tired of waiting. and we dont think like gms. im sure they have a plan that includes free agency for the next 2 years and next years draft. lets assume they have a good reason for wanting curry.
