Tim Hardaway Jr
New York Knicks
It’s been a long time since Michigan’s basketball program saw two players leave for the NBA and get selected in the first round of the draft. Just shy of 20 years, to be exact. In 1994, Juwan Howard was selected fifth and Jalen Rose picked 13th. Those two players had led the Wolverines to two national title games.
On Thursday, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. were both selected in the first round: Burke at number nine by Minnesota (later traded to Utah), Hardaway with the 24th pick by the New York Knicks. They, too, were coming off a season that resulted a lengthy postseason run culminating in a loss in the title game.
Burke was invited to the NBA Draft green room and sat with his family at a table in a maize and blue suit. The popular guard also brought with him upwards of 50 of his friends and family from Columbus, including his good friend and current Celtic Jared Sullinger.

Trey Burke was on the board for the Detroit Pistons at No. 8 overall. So were Syracuse PG Michael Carter-Williams and Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum. But the Pistons passed on all of those players in favor of sharpshooting Georgia shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, in a move that’s sure to leave Pistons (and Michigan basketball fans) talking for years.
That decision became even...

Tim Hardaway Jr. was sitting across from the Miami bench to watch one of the toughest blows in Heat history.
Allan Houston's go-ahead shot with 0.8 seconds left in the deciding Game 5 of a 1999 first-round series is one of the lasting highlights of the fierce playoff rivalry the New York Knicks had with the Heat in the late 1990s. Hardaway's father starred for Miami, works...
Does it even matter that the New York Knicks drafted Tim Hardaway, Jr. or anyone else for that matter, last night? The reason I ask is because there was a monumental shift of power in the Atlantic Division. With the Brooklyn Nets acquiring Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics, it seems that any move short of pulling off a trade to land LeBron James...
Anyone who reads regularly knows it’s hard for me to hide my Knicks homerism. But I’ll say this – grabbing Tim Hardaway Jr at #24 last night was a HUGE win for the orange and blue. Athletic as hell, can already shoot and has an NBA pedigree? Oh yeah, girl. That’s the way daddy likes it.
