2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 8

The Knicks 1 game winning streak was snapped on Sunday against the Raptors. Their idea to troll us and play Landry Fields 23 almost backfired as it took an overtime period to get the W. The Knicks were able to beat the Celtics after losing to the Spurs even though the Spurs fielded a starting lineup of an accountant, the water boy, a wet towel, and Tim Duncans mom.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Less than 3 hours after Fisher said he wanted to cut Melo’s minutes down Melo plays 44 minutes. He played well after sitting out against the Spurs, but if that knee is going to need surgery shouldn’t Melo get it now so he’s 100% for next season? 8
2 Calderon, Jose Yeah his defense is bad but isn’t it nice having a PG who can pass and shoot? This playing well every other game thing is getting frustrating though. 7
3 Prigioni, Pablo 9 assists, 5 steals and the only positive +/- on the team against Dallas. 6
4 Acy, Quincy Acy likes kinda crappy on the court, yet he’s the only player who has a positive +/- almost every night. 4
5 Larkin, Shane Look who’s back in the rotation. He didn’t do anything particularly great but didn’t look terrible either. 3
6 Stoudemire, Amar’e I’m not putting Amare any higher until his turnover and foul total is lower than his rebound total. 5
7 Hardaway Jr., Tim With Shumpert and JR out this is THJ’s time to shine. An up and down week for him, but I’m liking the aggressive drives to the basket. Having him not miss 3 times as many shots as he makes would be nice though. 9
8 Dalembert, Samuel So glad we got Dalembert 5 games before he became washed up. 13
9 Smith, Jason He actually had two decent games before dropping a complete turd against Toronto. 11
10 Aldrich, Cole Still trying to figure out why Jason Smith plays over Cole. Not that I think Cole is going to be great but we’ve seen Smith on the court. 2
11 Wear, Travis Wear looked pretty good against the Spurs so of course he didn’t play the next two games. 1
12 Smith, J.R. Smith might be out for a little bit. Remember when we thought there were too many SG’s? 10
13 Shumpert, Iman If Shumpert doesn’t look like a new player when he comes back from this injury there is no way we’re seeing him on the roster next season. 12
14 Early, Cleanthony OK, jokes over, come back and play. 14
15 Bargnani, Andrea We only owe two more draft picks for this guy… 15
