Donnie Walsh: Curry > Rubio

by October 06, 2009

If given the opportunity, the Knicks’ president would’ve snapped up Stephen Curry in the draft, ahead of Ricky Rubio: ” At dinner Friday night I asked Walsh who he would have selected had he been able to acquire the fourth or fifth spot in last June’s draft: Curry or Ricky Rubio? ‘Curry,’ he answered without a pause. ‘Not only is he a great shooter but he can get his shot on anyone. Opponents look at his baby face and figure they can manhandle him. Meanwhile he tore up every top-rated guard he went up against at our workout, including Tyreke Evans, who might be the best player in the draft next to Blake Griffin.”‘
