Hey, Knicks fans. I bet you're feeling good after New York dominated Detroit in the fourth quarter en route to an 18 point win last night, even though most of you are going to school or work on another brutally cold morning in the city.

Well, pardon me to worsen your case of the Mondays, but I have a statistic that's going to make you want to punch through a brick wall.

Since Patrick Ewing was drafted in 1985, the Knicks have only picked one player who has lasted more than five full seasons with the team.

That player was Charlie Ward, and he is the only one of 50 players who garnered that honor.

Yes, I said one of 50.

Allow me, then, to feel a little pessimistic about the Knicks' upcoming draft pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. For the record, yes, the Knicks have a first-round draft pick this year. Don't get too greedy though, because the Knicks don't have a second-round pick.

So which player will be picked by the Knicks, only to be traded away or cut in a few seasons? Here are 10 players New York should target in the draft.
