2016/17 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 16

A 1-3 week after barely beating the worst team in the league. Half the team looks like they don’t even want to be playing basketball anymore and the trade rumors are getting louder. AKA a typical February at MSG. By the way it’s decision time. The Knicks are 2.5 games out of the playoffs with 4 teams to leapfrog, and also 2.5 games out of the 4th worst record and 4 teams to leapfrog. They either need to get their act together immediately or embrace the tank and lock down a top 5 pick.

1 Hernangomez, Willy This one was easy. The only player on the team to look decent in every game AND to look like he’s putting in effort. It’s only a matter of time before he is starting over Noah. 6
2 Anthony, Carmelo Not going to drop Melo too far even though he had a couple stinkers this week. At least not until we see if this is due to being distracted by trade rumors or if it’s something worse. 1
3 Lee, Courtney Lee is still doing his thing. His +/- is a little disturbing, but it’s mostly due to the fact that the starting lineup almost always spots the other team 10 points right off the bat. 2
4 Jennings, Brandon Jennings has the most Jennings stat line this week; 1-11 for 6 point, but 10 assists and 5 steals. Unlike Rose, Jennings puts in maximum effort every night. 5
5 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis kind of stinks lately. Lingering injury or time to get on the ledge? Continue reading

1 Bargnani, Andrea Yes Bargnani is really bad in transition D.  However he has been playing good man to man D, even getting 10 blocks over a 2 game stretch, been scoring pretty efficiently and rebounding at a decent rate.  That’s all it takes to get a #1 spot on this roster apparently. 3
2 Anthony, Carmelo Still rebounding really well.  Still scoring very inefficiently, but at least he made up for it with 4 assists over 3 games and topped it off with running down the clock while down by 2 before missing a turnaround at the buzzer, shocking no one. 1
3 Martin, Kenyon Assists! Rebounds! Defense!  Why doesn’t this rub off on anyone else? 2
4 Prigioni, Pablo Lets not ever try the two point guard lineup.  It worked too well last season and everyting is going great so far this season.  It’s not that Pablo played great this week, but he played better than all the other point guards on this team. Continue reading
