2013/14 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 7

How do you even judge a team that wins two in a row by a total of 68 points and then loses by 41 two days later?  Can the Knicks now only beat bad teams that are missing at least two starters?  I’ll try again to make sense of this crazy roster.

1 Anthony, Carmelo The Melo everyone wants showed up to the Nets and Magic games.  Anthony took only good shots and as a result had his first back to back over .500 shooting nights of the season, he rebounded and he got a good amount of assists.  The bad Melo showed up in Boston, but I can only penalize him to much considering the bad version of everyone showed up against Boston. 2
2 Prigioni, Pablo Pablo was one of two players to show up against Boston.  The team shot 65% for the 17 minutes he played and 22% for the 31 minutes he didn’t.  Is Woodson the only one who doesn’t understand that Priggy makes this team better?  Lets make sure he definitely plays less than 20 minutes a game because Felton is super awesome. 4
3 Chandler, Tyson Chandler is in week 5 of rehab and is talking about maybe coming back before new Years which would make his 4-6 week recovery period about 8 weeks long.  No one wants him to come back before he’s totally healthy but I think we learned that he’s the #1 most important player on this roster. 7
4 Hardaway Jr., Tim Rook has been looking real good.  He better be careful though, if he keeps this up he’ll end up on the trading block.  Also, is anyone else worried that he’s using JR’s 3-point celebration on the bench?  I like the enthusiasm but I hope he’s not using JR as a role model. 5
5 Martin, Kenyon Raise your hand if you’re surprised that lifting his minutes restriction, and playing him heavy minutes at center would result in sore joints.  At least he got to miss the Boston Massacre. Continue reading
