DB headed to the New York Area?

That's the report according to today's New York Post. According to the report that appeared in SI.com's Truth and Rumors section:
Nets and Knicks brass sat among each other yesterday, watching Vanderbilt shooting guard Derrick Byars. But it will be the Nets with first crack at Byars on NBA Draft night, June 28. Because of the shorter window for individual workouts, and because the cross-river rivals pick in a similar range of the first round, the Nets and Knicks are holding pre-draft workouts together in unprecedented fashion. The Nets select 17th, the Knicks 23rd.

If DB brings me back to the Garden, yet another piece of the puzzle will fall into place.

Hopefully he goes 17th to the Nets......first of all I go to school a few blocks from where the Nets new stadium will be ("Where's Brooklyn AT!") and do we really want to see DB have to suffer through the misery that is NY Knickerbocker Baseketball. Its bad enough the Price will end up a Devil Ray (yes the Knicks are about as pathetic as the D-Rays)

Derrick Byars will return that team to greatness. If I may be so bold as to make a comparison, Derrick Byars will be to the emerging power that will be the Knicks with him on the squad, what Charles Oakley was to the great Knicks teams of the mid-1990's. Ewing might have been the "talent," but Oak was the glue. Derrick is more talented than Oakley, but will have a similar effect on that franchise. I can hope...can't I?

Agreed. I would hate to see Byars on a team that needs it first round pick for building.

If you ask me he'd be an ideal fit for the Jazz

Bobby O'Shea said...

Or the Suns...he would immediately be that team's best defender.

Bobby are you being serious with that statement?

Bobby O'Shea said...

I think I stand by that? Although I am willing to hear why that statement is dead-wrong.
