Five games since the last rankings, four of them losses. There are also only 13 players to rank after the Knicks bought out Mett and Udrih this week. Will it be 12 next week? Felton has been arrested on 3 felony gun charges. The PG rotation is looking pretty thin right now. I wonder what Beno is up to?
If Melo is going down he’s going to go down in a blaze of glory. This week was arguably the best stretch of basketball in his entire career. He scored over 40 points while taking less than 30 shots 3 times this week. To play that efficiently and still lose 4 out of 5 has to be giving him second thoughts about staying in NY after this season.
I hate to give the #2 spot to a guy who looks like he’s only half interested in playing but who else is even remotely deserving of this spot? Chandler did have a 23 rebound game this week. Of course it was a loss but still.
Murry gets this spot because no one who played this past week deserves this spot. Also, I have a feeling Murry will be getting a good amount of run this coming week, unless Woodson decides to play JR at the point, which isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
Tyler didn’t have a geat week. It looks like some of his teammates terrible defensive habits are rubbing off on him. He’s also seen him minutes drop to below 10 a game because Woodson likes to play his starters over 40 minutes per game. What could go wrong with that strategy?
THJ literally can’t guard anyone. I know he’s a rookie, but I’m worried he’s going to be such a defensive liability going forward that there is no point in even playing him. His shot has gone cold too, which is kinda necessary if you’re going to give up points on the other end every trip down.
It was a pretty bad week for Felton, but not the worst. But any time you point a gun at your girlfriend (not your wife, that would be mean) and get arrested on 3 felony gun charges, possibly ending your NBA career you get the last spot.
