After opting to forgo his senior year at Michigan, Tim Hardaway Jr. has been drafted by the New York Knicks with the No. 24 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Hardaway averaged 14.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game during his junior season. Hardaway’s three years at Michigan saw a Big Ten Championship, National Championship game appearance and three NCAA tournament berths.

Hardaway’s selection marks the first time since 1994 (Jalen Rose and Juwan Howard) that two Michigan players were selected in the first round after Trey Burke was selected ninth.

    As a Bulls fan (and big Knicks hater), I’m conflicted. I guess I can still hate the other 11 guys on the team.

    It will be interesting to see how this develops. I think he could have done better with the Clippers, but the Knicks have enough tools to help him maximize his potential at this stage imho. Lets go Tim!

    Hope he gets traded. No way I can root for a Knick.
