Episode 291: Emergency Episode

Marc and Jay do an emergency episode to talk about the Knicks for some reason blowing their chance at a guaranteed top 4 pick.  We do the show while the Orlando game is on and get very angry as it ends.  We also check in with Derrick rose and answer listener questions.  Unlike most episodes, we get a little too angry and there is foul language in this episode.

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 21

I got to the power rankings a day late this week so this will be for 5 games, with two wins including an overtime win against the Spurs.  While watching the Knicks win last night was fun, it makes the back to back against the 76ers and the Twolves two very important games in the tank race.

1 Shved, Alexey Shved has been getting to the line more than any other Knick, he’s been rebounding, passing, he even hit a bunch of 3’s.  This has been the easiest pick for #1 in months. 2
2 Galloway, Langston A PG who plays defense?!?! Yes please.  He may be coming out of his shooting slump as well, which is nice. 5
3 Bargnani, Andrea Is there a rule that only 1-2 players at a time can shoot well for the Knicks?  As soon as Galloway hits some shots, Bargs starts missing. 1
4 Amundson, Lou Lou might have been lower on the list had I done the rankings before last nights game, but I can’t argue with 17 rebounds. 4
5 Aldrich, Cole He doesn’t do much else but man can Cole rebound. Continue reading

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 20

Four games and four losses this week, with 3 of them being disgusting blowouts. It all makes sense when you take a look at the Knicks top 5 players this week. These last 20 games are going to really drag, especially if you’re looking forward to arguably the most interesting western conference playoffs we’ve ever seen.

1 Bargnani, Andrea Bargnani looked great in the two games against the Pacers. Like really good. And he didn’t look good in the Kings and Nuggets game. Reason 415 why I don’t want the Knicks to sign Hibbert, who was held to 3 points and 0-6 shooting. Against Bargs. 1
2 Shved, Alexey I am quickly becoming a Shvedhead. He’s by far the best on this team at drawing fouls, and he can rebound and pass. He even found his shot against the Nuggets. 5
3 Larkin, Shane Larkin had an OK week. He led the team in assists in two of the four games and didn’t turn the ball over too much. 8
4 Amundson, Lou Lou missed a game with back spasms and then played 14 minutes off the bench and managed to get more rebounds than our starting PF that game (Smith 1 board in 21 minutes). 2
5 Galloway, Langston Galloway had 2 decent games but he also managed to get a +/- of -40 against the Kings. How is that even possible? Continue reading

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 19

Well that was unexpected. Just as I was googling “most losses in a row NBA” the Knicks get their first multiple game (2) winning streak of 2015. I give up trying to figure this team out.

1 Bargnani, Andrea I never thought in a million years this would happen. The Knicks win a few games and Bargs has been their best player. What in the world is happening? 3
2 Amundson, Lou Dunking, blocking, rebounding, Lou was Mr. Intangibles this week. 6
3 Hardaway Jr., Tim A good shooting week from THJ! It’s been so long since we had a shooting guard that shot well. Please be a turning point and not a fluke. 9
4 Galloway, Langston Galloway is not afraid to take a big shot. He has to be the Knicks feel good story of the year. 1
5 Shved, Alexey Shved can attack the rim, rebound and pass. If he learned to shoot he’d be an absolute keeper. Continue reading

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 18

Melo shut it down. He wasn’t resting for the all star game. It was a huge cooincidence that he took off the game before and got surgery two days after. Pablo Prigioni was traded and Alexey Shved joins the team. I don’t think we should be asking ‘will the Knicks win another game this season’. We should be asking ‘will the Knicks cover the spread in any game for the rest of the season’.

1 Galloway, Langston Langston ended his one game good shooting streak against the Cavs but got some rebounds and assists to kinda sorta make up for it. Good enough for the #1 spot. 5
2 Calderon, Jose Seriously, no one on the team can string together two good games in a row. Jose looked good against Miami…on offense at least. Playing well on one end of the court for 1 game in a row is good enough for the #2 spot. 2
3 Bargnani, Andrea Yup, the 3 best players this week were a d-leaguer, a guy who is 33 but plays like he’s 38, and Bargnani. That dunk alone would have gotten Bargs into the top 3. 13
4 Wear, Travis As predicted, Wear benefits from Melo shutting it down and made the most of it. A pretty solid week from Wear. 14
5 Acy, Quincy Is that what I think it is? Yes! A Quincy Acy sighting. There were a whole bunch of random, not very good players that were unchained from the bench after the departure of Amare and Melo. Continue reading
