Knicks Roster Mid-Season Grades

The Knicks Depth

Remember a few weeks ago when we were complaining that the Knicks went 4 deep with one of the worst benches in the NBA?  Well now if Baron Davis ever comes back we’re suddenly 2 deep at every single position.

Landry Fields             Iman Shumpert
Carmelo Anthony      Steve Novak
Amar’e Stoudemire   Josh Harrellson
Tyson Chandler         Jared Jeffries

And that’s with Toney Douglas, Bill Walker, Renaldo Balkman, Mike Bibby and Jerome Jordan all getting zero minutes.

Are we actually resembling a real team?
