If you haven't been paying attention, there's a storm a-brewin' in Oklahoma City. Clearly, this team is done tanking, but are we underrating how capable this team is?

Far-Fetched Friday: RJ Barrett will Emerge as the New York Knicks’ Leader This Season
The New York Knicks haven't been able to gain any traction toward relevance in the NBA for years, especially since Carmelo Anthony was traded away. There's been a distinct lack of leadership all across the organization, which hurts the development of their young players. Having a leader on the court is vital for team success, and this upcoming season, the Knicks will have just that in the form of sophomore guard RJ Barrett.
Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday we look at the New York State of mind.
Barrett had an up-and-down rookie season in New York, to say the least. While he struggled with efficiency, he still managed to drop some impressive stat lines that provided a glimpse of what he could one day become. With a team as young as the Knicks, Barrett will have ample opportunity to show how much he has improved during his extended offseason.
Not only will Barrett become a leader of New York's rebuilding team, but he will prove that he's going to be a valuable cornerstone for the Knicks for years to come. Without many veterans on the team, the Knicks should be pushing hard for Barrett to step up and elevate his game, otherwise the team is doomed to be irrelevant for the foreseeable future.
