2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 12

It looks like that embarrassment against the Bulls on the 1st really rallied this team.  A 3 and 1 week with the one loss being a missed 3 at the buzzer, which would have made the Knicks the first team to beat the Spurs at home all season.

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 11

Interesting week, two nice wins against the Pistons and Hawks. Oh, and a 4th quarter against the Bulls that was the Knicks lowest scoring 4th quarter.  Ever.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Melo is still #1 in the rankings but I am a little disturbed by the lack of free throws Melo got this week.  7 in 3 games is not ideal.  On the plus side, the Knicks seem to win when Melo has 5 or more assists, something he did in both wins this week. 1
2 Afflalo, Arron Arron had to get a top 2 spot for his ridiculous game against Atlanta.  38 points on 14-17 shooting.  Beautiful. 5
3 Porzingis, Kristaps Two months into the NBA season and Porzingis has 2 rookie of the month awards.  So much for all that talk about not being effective for a few years. 2
4 Lopez, Robin Robin Lopez continues his streak of good games with a 6 block game against Detroit and a 16 point game against Atlanta. 4
5 Williams, Derrick Even if he sucks the rest of the season, we’ll always have that 4th quarter in Detroit. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 10

Pretty crappy week overall.  0-3 and somehow the closest game was the game against Cleveland sans Melo. Hopefully the Knicks new years resolution is to not look terrible.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Melo only played in 2 of the 3 games this week, but the games he did play in he looked like a star yet again.  Hopefully the last 10 games is the Melo we’ll get most of the season and not the Melo from the first 15-20 games. 1
2 Porzingis, Kristaps Yes, he had a stinker vs Atlanta, but looked good in the other two games.  His shot is going to start to fall soon and then he’s going to be unstoppable. 6
3 Thomas, Lance I can’t believe Lance Thomas turned into our best bench player.  The Knicks still have a 2019 2nd rounder coming from Cleveland.  That Shumpert and JR trade looks better every day. 2
4 Lopez, Robin Maybe getting owned by Vucevic knocked some sense into Robin, as he looked much better this week. 8
5 Afflalo, Arron Arron cooled down a ton since last week, which is a big contributor to the Knicks problems with winning basketball games. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 9

The Knicks go 3-1 this week.  In keeping with their trend, no more than 2 or 3 guys are allowed to play really well in any single game.  Fortunately for the Knicks 1 of those guys has been Melo all week, and when Melo plays really well the Knicks have a great chance at winning.

1 Anthony, Carmelo This was an easy call.  Melo shot lights out against the Magic and Bulls.  He didn’t have a great shooting night against the Wolves, but had a season high in assists, 1 shy of a triple double.  The Knicks look like a playoff team when Melo is firing on all cylindars. 1
2 Thomas, Lance What insane world are we living in where Lance Thomas has been the Knicks 2nd best player AND the Knicks won most of the games?  I’m finally convinced, sorry for all the hate Lance.  I’ll add my newly found surplus of hate to the Vujacic section. 4
3 Afflalo, Arron Until the dud against the Magic Arron has been a legit 2nd scoring option next to Melo. It says a lot that the one game this week he couldn’t get it going was the 1 game the Knicks lost. 2
4 O’Quinn, Kyle The basketball gods giveth and the basketball gods taketh away.  O’Quinn was becoming a really key part of the bench until he was held out of the Magic game with an undesclosed ankle injury.  When the Knicks don’t disclose an injury it usually means something bad.  Kyle is probably getting his foot amputated. 3
5 Galloway, Langston Looks like Galloway is slowly coming out of his slump, giving the backcourt some much needed support.  And the better Langston plays, the less we have to see of Sasha. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 8

An up a down week.  There was the Utah game where the Knicks got spanked, the Kings game that the Knicks should have won, and the Portland game where they finally did win.  A lot of shake ups in the rankings this week as Porzingis terrible week gets him dethroned, and O’Quinn gets out of the doghouse and shoots up the standings.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Yeah he was bad in Utah, but who wasn’t.  Melo was crazy good in Portland with arguably his best outing of the season. Lets hope we see more games like that. 3
2 Afflalo, Arron It’s nice having another scoring option, Afflalo hasn’t been amazing, but he’s been fairly reliable and consistent, something no one else on the team currently has. 2
3 O’Quinn, Kyle I don’t know what to make of this, KOQ had a great week, grabbed a ton of boards, and even had a 7-8 night against Portland.  Why does Fisher bench him for weeks at a time? 13
4 Thomas, Lance Never thought I’d ever put Thomas this high.  Does this count as my apology? 7
5 Vujacic, Sasha This is like the bizarro standings.  I still think we’d be better off if Sasha were in a suit, but I can’t deny how good he was this week.  Sasha almost led a comeback in Utah after a no show by the starters. Continue reading
