So if you follow Melo’s twitter: @carmeloanthony you would see that 12-13 minutes before the Knicks #17 pick, Melo was pumped to see who would join him, Stat and Co for next year.
He tweets via (@carmeloanthony): Ok here we go
And who do the Knicks draft? A projected second round pick out of Georgia Tech, IMAN SHUMPERT.Who? Yea Melo felt the same way, and decided it was time to go to sleep.
Melo tweets after the pick via (@carmeloanthony): Goodnight. I’m out
If Melo meant what he tweeted, I don’t blame him. We drafted a guy named Shumpert, I didn’t even know that name existed.
Seems like Iman will join the Knicks drafted greats (since 2000): Jordan Hill, Renaldo Balkman, Marty Collins, Mike Sweetney, Donnell Harvey, Maciej Lampe, Slavko Vranes, Dijon Thompson, Milos Vujanic, Eric Chenowith, Michael Wright.
