2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 15

This is the first week this season in which the Knicks have a full roster of 15, after signing Thanasis Antetokounmpo.  Other than that, this week was pretty much what you’d expect; losses to Toronto and OKC and a win against the wretched Suns.  This is a hard week to rank and no one really played particularly well in the two losses.

1 Anthony, Carmelo After sitting out against Toronto, Melo came back with back to back double doubles, and was 2 assists shy of a triple double against the Suns. 1
2 Galloway, Langston Solid week for Langston in Calderons absense. Shooting is erratic, but defense and ball movement have been decent. 8
3 Lopez, Robin Consistently one of the best +/- on the team.  Odd that he only plays 24mpg. 3
4 Porzingis, Kristaps We learned this week that Porzingis is a lot slower than Dramond Green.  A LOT. 2
5 Afflalo, Arron How can Afflalo look so good some games and so completely terrible in others? Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 14

Once again the Knicks hit .500 and once again go on a losing streak.  Melo played hurt and then didn’t play.  Lance missed some games and we realized how much he means to the team.  The rankings look pretty different this week due to injuries and some up and down play.  The OKC game is included in these rankings because I’m doing this a day late this week.

1 Williams, Derrick Yeah I went there. Who else had a better week than Williams? Back to back double doubles with 19 and 21 points, yes please. 4
2 Lopez, Robin Monster game against the Jazz, and respectable showings the rest of the week. 5
3 Galloway, Langston Galloway almost saved the day in OKC. Watch him finally get his groove and get thrown into a Jeff Teague trade. 6
4 Porzingis, Kristaps Shot is still sporadic, but pretty much every game he does something that makes me giddy. 2
5 Anthony, Carmelo Melo started off the week hot but was progressively more hobbled each game, culminating in a DNP against OKC. If the Knicks are going to make a playoff push Melo has to get healthy fast. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 13

The Knicks went 2-2 this week.  That’s OK, but losing to Brooklyn and needing double overtime to beat the ’76ers isn’t good.  I guess it could have been worse, and there were some nice performances in Melo’s 2 game absence.

Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Afflalo, Arron 3 really nice games for Arron this week. We’ll ignore the Grizzlies game. The Knicks win almost every time Arron scores over 20 points. 2
2 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis has had good shooting nights more often than not lately. It looks like stamina is the only thing holding him back, which is understandable since he has already played more minutes than all of last season. 3
3 Anthony, Carmelo If anyone was wondering just how important Melo is to this team, the Nets game should be a good indication. The Knicks can’t even beat the dregs of the league without Melo. 1
4 Williams, Derrick Williams was one of the only guys who showed against Brooklyn. Not sure why his minutes fluctuate so much (defense? Shot selection?) but he puts up great numbers when he plays more than 20. 5
5 Lopez, Robin I still can’t figure out why sometimes Robin looks like he has some offense and sometimes he looks like Dennis Rodman on offense. Continue reading

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.
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
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
