Is Frank Ntilikina a BUST?
In the 2017 NBA Draft, the Knicks were desperate for a point guard of the future. I was beyond excited when the Knicks chose Frank Ntilikina, a 6'5" 18-year-old with a 7-foot wingspan. Looking at his highlights prior to the season, I said this: "I know that Frank Ntilikina is listed as a point guard. I’ve seen highlights of him and I don’t think he has an NBA handle… yet. He’s not even 19-years-old yet, so hopefully the Knicks can keep him long enough to inevitably trade him for Jerian Grant.

When compared to Dennis Smith Jr.'s 15 points and 5 assists shooting 39% from the field and 30% from three , some Knicks fans are already writing Ntilikina off as a bust.
