2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 20

The Knicks are back down to 14 as Jimmer ends his 10 day contract averaging 50 points per 36 minutes.   It looks like the Knicks are going to use that final spot on Tony Wroten, who is coming off an injury and most likely won’t play the rest of the season, so that really helps our guard situation.  Anyway, one win and two losses since last week, lets see if I can sort out this mess.

1 Anthony, Carmelo This might have been Melos beat week of the season. I am a little disturbed Rambis finds it necessary to play Melo 40+ minutes on back to back nights. If he breaks Melo we might not win another game, and we’re on pace to win at least 2 more! 2
2 Afflalo, Arron Afflalo had a really great week. Now that my expectations are up I’m fully expecting an absolutely terrible week coming up very soon. 9
3 Lopez, Robin Lopez has been one of the only consistently positive things about this season. 3
4 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis went from good against Portland to not so good against the Celtics, to injured for the Pistons game. Not one of his better weeks. He also ended his streak of eastern conference rookie of the month awards, losing out to Myles Turner. 1
5 O’Quinn, Kyle Congrats to Kyle for being the least terrible guy on the Knicks bench! 10 Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 19

Three games this week. We got to see a little of everything; the Knicks clicking and looking like a real team, and then 2 days later the Knicks looking like a team that’s given up.   I’ll try not to make this too negative, but the Knicks have lost 14 of the last 17 games so there isn’t too much to be positive about.

1 Porzingis, Kristaps Pretty good week for Porzingis, we saw some good shooting nights, some excellent blocks, and a classy response to a prom proposal. I like this guy more every day. 3
2 Anthony, Carmelo I think it’s about time to start calling Melo our best PG. His shot is off again, and I’m really worried that Rambis is going to destry what’s left of Melo’s knees with all the minutes he’s been getting in meaningless blowout games. 1
3 Lopez, Robin Robin is still looking for his offense, which is really great. He’s been better than people have been giving him credit for. 2
4 Galloway, Langston Langston puts up decent numbers on the bench.   Every time he starts he looks kind of overwhelmed and the Knicks get blown out. 4
5 Thomas, Lance Quiet week for Lance. I miss December 2015 Lance. 5 Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 18

I included the Wizards game in this weeks rankings since doing a rankings on 1 game would be dumb. So now we get to add two losses and a win to that Wizards game.  The Knicks added Jimmer, which sadly enough is the only bright spot. The team looks demoralized and the playoffs look like a pipe dream.  Here’s your damn rankings.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Melo is looking really frustrated lately.   You can imagine why. He’s playing really well lately, assisting at a career high rate and .1 rebounds away from a career high rebound rate, but most of the team, as usual, stinks. 4
2 Lopez, Robin The last two games Robin has looked crazy good.   It’s amazing what happens when you get your center involved on the offensive end, something Chandler never got to experience. 1
3 Porzingis, Kristaps The shot is still up and down and now the rebounding has come down a bit, but Porzingis is clearly the 3rd best player on this team. 2
4 Galloway, Langston I’m trying to forget about his zero point performance against the Raptors (1 of 3 Knicks guards to do that on the same night!).   At least he can defend, something the rest of the backcourt can’t claim. 5
5 Thomas, Lance Lance didn’t get zero points against the Raptors, but he did against the Nets on 0-5 shooting. That’s still good enough for a top 5 spot this week.  That’s how bad this team has been. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 16

The Knicks lost every game this week, no one is playing particularly well, and now coach Fisher has been fired.  Greek Salad hasn’t been resigned yet so we’re back down to 14 players on the roster.

1 Lopez, Robin Lopez started off the week with a great game agains the Celtics and a Monster game against the Pistons.  He also played 30 minutes or more in every game this week.  He didn’t do anything against the Nuggets, but no one strung together 4 good games this week and that 26 and 16 game against Detroit was most impressive.  Good enough for Lopez first #1 ranking of the season. 3
2 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis did the opposite of Lopez, played poorly against Boston and Detroit and then looked amazing against Memphis and Denver.  Imagine one day all our guys played well at the same time? 4
3 Afflalo, Arron This is representative of how bad the Knicks have been.  Afflalo didn’t have a very good week and moved up 2 spots. 5
4 Anthony, Carmelo Oh my lord did Melo shoot bad this week.  He said it’s because his knee is hurting which is just great.  Years 1 and 2 of his max contract have been disasters.  Good thing Melo got to the line, rebounded, and passed to make up for his shooting, but now he’s starting to miss a bunch of games so I’m getting pretty nervos. 1
5 Galloway, Langston Galloway had a nice showing against Detroit, but was absolute trash in the games he started this week. Continue reading
