|Rank||Player||Comments||Last weeks Rank|
|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|

Marc and Jay talk about the finals, the latest Knicks rumors, worst case scenarios for this summer, more coaching talk, listener questions and more
Nothing has actually happened in the offseason so far, but there are tons of rumors floating around. Since we don’t have much else to do other than watch the last few highly predictable games of the conference finals I figured I’d briefly mention a few of the current items of note.
Carmelo Anthony said he would embrace playing for Mark Jackson. No duh. From what I saw of Jackson in Golden State it looks like plays are not his strong suit. Which means plenty of opportunity for iso-Melo. The fact that Melo would be happy to play for a coach that lets him monopolize the ball is no shocker. You should probably go to the top sportsbooks and wager it all on Melo being happy with any coach that gives him enough leeway as Woodson did.
