Chaos reigns in the land of the Triangle offense: the Knicks made two big moves on draft day yesterday, drafting 7-foot-1 19-year-old Latvian forward Kristaps Prozingis and then trading Tim Hardaway Jr. for the rights to point guard Jerian Grant. The Prozingis move is the one that is causing the most fuss—the pick was greeted with deafening boos by fans attending the draft at the Barclay's Center Thursday night. And now star Carmelo Anthony is airing his frustrations as well.

According to ESPN, Anthony feels betrayed by president Phil Jackson, who essentially decided to gamble on the Knicks future rather than provide his star with someone for the present: "All they said was he’s furious, he’s livid, he feels completely hoodwinked and betrayed by Phil Jackson," Stephen A. Smith said. "He feels like he was lied to and sold a bill of goods. He’s willing to concede he wanted his money, but he didn’t know it would be like this and this bad. He can’t believe the second season for Phil Jackson he has to look forward to being worse than last season was."

Knicks Twitter was less than sympathetic to Melo:

Both Jackson and Prozingis acknowledged the fan frustrations. For his part, Jackson was his usual somewhat-removed, somewhat-smug, somewhat-zen self: “I think our fans are going to like him,” he said at the team’s training complex. “The reaction of the crowd is what you anticipate in New York, and he’s aware of it.”

"The risk is great but the reward is great, too," Jackson said in an interview with ESPN's Chris Broussard. It was the most Phil Jackson thing that could have been said.

Prozingis was humbled by the experience: "Lot of fans weren't happy they drafted me," Porzingis said. "I have to do everything in my hands to turn those booing fans into clapping fans. I was happy about it. Want to be part of this organization. The fans are harsh sometimes. That's how it is in New York, and I'm ready for it."

Everyone seems to have mellowed out a tiny bit today, but in the immediate aftermath of the Porzingis pick, Knicks fans were inconsolable.

ESPN's Stephen A Smith, who is notoriously bad at being a basketball analyst, went ballistic on air over the picks. Other fans just sat in their living rooms with the TVs on mute, calling local sports radio stations while frothing at the mouth.

As everyone from the Daily News to Grantland has pointed out, the Jackson and the Knicks seem to be operating like a legitimate basketball organization for the first time in at least two decades. Even if great leaps aren't made next season, this is the foundation for the team's future.

And anyway, Prozingis is already fitting in like gangbusters.
