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

Knicks at Hornets 11-11-15 – Game Recap

Written by Matt Adwar@theknicksguy

Kristaps Porzingis hit the game winner with 0.6 seconds left ….except it didn’t count. It could not have been any closer as the New York Knicks suffer a devastating loss against the Charlotte Hornets 95-93 as they fall to 4-5.

The Knicks were in control for most of the game as they held a 12-point lead at one time. But the 16 turnovers and 24 fouls were just too much for the Knicks to come back from.

Derek Fisher after the game “People oftentimes focus on the fourth quarter and the finish and the last plays but a lot of times the first through the third quarter makes a difference”

Head coach Derek Fisher did not seem happy at his teams performance down the stretch and did not like the excessive fouls. “They got to the free throw line 28 times and that’s too many”

Tip Ins

Arron Afflalo looked great in his season debut with the Knicks scoring 12 points and adding 6 rebounds. Continue reading

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 11

Well that was a surprise. Last night the Knicks traded JR Smith and Iman Shumpert for Lance Thomas, Alex Kirk, and Lou Amundson and waived Sam Dalembert. Philly won so the Knicks are officially in 30th. Or 1st if you are rooting for the best chance at that #1 pick. The tank is in full effect!

1 Acy, Quincy Acy gets the #1 spot solely for last nights game. 87% shooting. 2 three pointers. 14 rebounds. Team high 19 points. What? 9
2 Aldrich, Cole Cole was on a roll until the Memphis game. It was fun while it lasted. At least we don’t have to worry about Dalembert taking his minutes anymore. 2
3 Prigioni, Pablo I could put any of our 3 PGs in the 3-5 spots, they are all of equal talent right now. And by equal talent I mean somewhere in the high 20’s or low 30’s as far as best PG’s in the league. 4
4 Calderon, Jose Remember when Calderon wasn’t washed up? One of these days the Knicks will aquire a player BEFORE he’s past his prime. 3
5 Larkin, Shane I was about to write how this team is composed of shooters who can’t shoot and PG’s who can’t pass and then Shane ruins it by getting 8 assists against Memphis. Continue reading
