2013/14 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 17

Only one game this week.  This is a good thing because I had such a bad taste in my mouth from the Sacramento game it took me all week to get it out.  It would be great if more than 1 or two people on this team played well in the same week, it’s hard to rank 13 sucky players.
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Anthony, Carmelo Carmelo had another poor shooting night, but what do you expect when he ends up playing 48 minutes?  Does Woodson not realize Melo always has amazing 1st quarters but then Woodson’s minute management grinds him into a pulp by the end of the game?  Melo also gets the #1 spot for grabbing a bunch of boards and also looking like the only starter who is actually trying in games. 2
2 Chandler, Tyson Chandler looks like he’s checked out on Woodson.  He looks like he’s pissed at all his teammates.  He looks like he’s giving about 65% effort on defense.  Despite all that he had a double double and outplayed everyone on the roster except Melo. 3
3 Prigioni, Pablo He’s the Knicks best PG, but only if you go by facts, stats, and any other available metric out there.  Good thing he plays half as many minutes as Felton. 4
4 Jeremy Tyler Tyler only played 12 minutes but was able to grab 5 boards.  You have to wonder if playing Tyler 5 more minutes would have given Melo the energy to hit 1 or two extra shots at the end of the game. 1
5 Stoudemire, Amar’e Another super efficient offensive game from Amare.  A little too many turnover (6) and the usual bad defense and the usual loss when he plays. 5
6 Shumpert, Iman It’s Imans now bi-weekly not terrible game!  Hopefully the all star weekend plays into this trend so we only have to sit through 1 week of actual games before he makes another positive appearance on the court. 10
7 Murry, Toure’ Why develop young players when you have bad vets! 7
8 Smith, J.R. JR didn’t play because of a broken cheekbone.  At this point I can’t even decide if him not playing is a good or bad thing.  He’s been playing well the last two weeks or so, but I have a feeling that won’t last. 8
9 Martin, Kenyon It’s official, Martin is this seasons Camby. 9
10 World Peace, Metta Metta doesn’t play anymore which is strange.  He also seems to be getting weirder and weirder.  Is he not playing because he secretly went insane? 14
11 Felton, Raymond Felton actually distributed the ball!  Huzzah!  Hooray!  Excelcior!  Still missed a bunch of shots, had some bad turnovers and was apparently bored at the end of the game.  That or he was tired because Woodsons minutes management SUCKS. 15
12 Bargnani, Andrea How long until we can start calling Bargnani ABEC (Andrea Bargnanis Expiring Contract)? 13
13 Udrih, Beno I hope by this time next week we can wish Beno well on his new team.  Not that I hate him, I just hate his situation. 12
14 Aldrich, Cole DNP-CD.  Again.  😦 11
15 Hardaway Jr., Tim Oof.  This had the be the worst game of THJ’s short career.  He had a +/- of -28 in an overtime game.  That’s some bad court time.  If he doesn’t get better on defense he’s not going to be worth playing when he’s having a poor shooting night.  Which has bene happening a lot more often by the way. 6
