New York Knicks: Top 10 First-Round Draft Picks in Franchise History

Since Iman Shumpert has showed some signs of excellence in his rookie season, I thought it would be cool to look back at the other first-round picks the Knicks have drafted that have actually done well in the NBA with the Knicks.

The Knicks became apart of the NBA in 1949, however the Knicks hadn't got a real gem until two big stars came in 1967, one who was drafted in 1965 and another one who was drafted that year, 1967. Everything went right in the 1960's to 1970's but after that, even one of the best centers in the league couldn't win a championship after getting drafted first overall.

The Knicks could probably have done better selecting first-round picks, but they did find a few gems throughout the years.
