Malik Monk arrives in Charlotte

Many expected Malik Monk to be drafted eighth by the New York Knicks, but he handled his slide to Charlotte at eleventh like a pro, telling reporters afterwards that he believes everything happens for a reason.

This morning, Monk arrived in Charlotte, ready to embrace his new city:

Here he is meeting Hornets executives:

I can’t wait to see a picture of Monk and MKG.

    Even though Malik lost money and prestige by his draft position, he is probably going to be happier in Charlotte than New York City. His remarks were classy. I hope he makes the Knicks pay dearly for passing on him.

    Monk can teach MKG how to shoot and MKG can teach Monk how to defend.
