    Agreed, it is a pretty dumb thing to argue about.

    Montclair, eh? I go to school at Montclair State.

    Nice, Red Hawk Diner is pretty $...but back to the Knicks, I think its pretty much a lock for D'Antoni and Walsh to go after a pure point guard in the first round of the draft. I know he's the popular choice but I don't believe that Stephen Curry is a pure pg, to me he's more of a combo guard that might have difficulties maintaining the pace that Mikey D's system commands.

    With Jonny Flynn you know Flynn is a leader (went to the Elite 8), has a solid jump shot (.317 3pt % for the season) and has the stamina to run the court non-stop for 4 quarters or more as witnessed in the Big East Champ game vs. UCONN.

    I wouldn't be disappointed if the Knicks were to get Flynn. I was very impressed with what I saw from him in both the Big East and NCAA Tourney's, as was everyone else. I would just prefer Stephen Curry.

    I think they're going to end up taking Curry. He's a safe pick - won't be a star but definitely will be a contributor. With Curry and Duhon Knicks are pretty much set at pg for the next several years and can concentrate on other positions.

    Lol at this line of reasoning, as if this is some kind of credential .

    Flynn didn't go to the Elite 8, in his only NCAA Tourney he led SU to the Sweet 16. I like Flynn but he's no Ty Lawson.

    Poisonberry was a red-blooded Brooklyn boy. How'd that work out?

    You may be right, but Lawson probably had 6 better players on UNC then the next best player on Syracuse. (Prob Devendorf). It's a little easier to game plan for Flynn than Lawson. I see a lot of Chris Paul in Flynn. Not sure who I see in Lawson.
