Tim Hardaway Jr throws down filthy slam dunk against Blazers (GIF)

The New York Knicks haven’t been a team that covets draft picks as of late, but they’re showing that you don’t really know what you’ve got until it’s gone. New York would kill for draft picks at the moment but the team has some young talent that is making thing look bright for the future regardless of the pick situation.

One guy who has stood out is former Michigan Wolverines guard Tim Hawrdaway Jr, who threw down a nasty slam dunk against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night inside Madison Square Garden.

Hardaway Jr. isn’t a star yet, but he’s developing very quickly and the rookie is starting to leave his mark on a Knicks team more than please to have him on their roster.
