The New York Knicks have been no strangers to controversy and drama. Owner James Dolan tests the patience of his diehard fans daily, somehow managing to roster a downright brutal team for nearly the entire 21st century. Things can't possibly get any worse, right? Right?
Well, various NBA sources believe that LaMelo Ball's camp, led by his boisterous father LaVar, is trying to steer their way to the Knicks in the upcoming NBA Draft. This will surely go well.
You want to get nuts? Let's get nuts!
LaMelo opted to forgo playing college ball to instead play professionally in Australia. Despite not following the traditional protocol, Ball is still projected to be an early first-round selection in the draft. In fact, reports indicate that the Knicks are interested in trading up in the draft to ensure they can select Ball! As they should, if they believe in him, considering their biggest weakness on their roster is at point guard.
However, this decision could be downright disastrous. Not only do Knicks fans have to hear from Dolan for the foreseeable future, but add LaVar Ball to the New York media mix and you've got yourself a clusterr. Oh, and LaVar has stated that he wants LaMelo, Lonzo, and LiAngelo to play for the Knicks at the same time. Nice. Easy.
While LaMelo Ball has all the making of becoming a great NBA point man, there will simply be tons of drama following him and the Knicks organization if this materializes. Let not kid ourselves -- anything the Knicks touch turns to dust, so don't be surprised if drafting Ball completely blows up in their faces.
