What is Frederic Weis remembered for? Getting dunked on by Vince Carter, but not in an NBA game because Weis never played in an NBA game.
Other more recent first round picks such as Renaldo Balkman, Jordan Hill, and Michael Sweetney also did nothing on the court as Knicks that satisfied their fans satisfied with their selections.
Not every selection has gone wrong for the Knicks though.
Here are the ten greatest draft-picks in Knicks history. This is not an order of the ten greatest players the Knicks ever drafted. I also looked at when they got drafted, meaning if a guy was drafted 35th, and he was only slightly worse than a guy who was drafted 18th, the guy who was drafted 35th would be ranked higher.
Note: Bill Bradley was a territorial draft pick, so I did not include him. Also, the player had to spend a decent amount of time on the team, so even though Rod Strickland and Trevor Ariza were great picks in the slot they were taken in, neither lasted two full seasons with the team.
