After the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery last month, there were many Knicks fans who were understandably upset. The Knicks had a good chance of receiving either the No. 1 or No. 2 pick in the upcoming draft. But instead, they ended up falling all the way to fourth and will likely miss out on the opportunity to pick either Karl Anthony-Towns or Jahlil Okafor.
There could be a silver lining for Knicks fans, though. Because they've still got a relatively high draft pick, they might get their hands on Emmanuel Mudiay. And while most Knicks fans probably haven't seen him play, there's a lot to be excited about when it comes to his game.
Here's a dunk that Mudiay threw down earlier today, courtesy of ESPN's Chad Ford:
Here he is firing up a bunch of threes:
And it sounds like he's got quite a few workouts scheduled for this month, too:
Obviously, Knicks fans will need to see more before they get too excited—and they're going to need to hope that the Timberwolves, Lakers, or 76ers don't fall in love with the guy. But this might work out for you, guys!
