2016/17 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 14

The Knicks went 2-2 since the last rankings.   If they keep up a pace like this it’ll be enough to just miss the playoffs while also ensuring we don’t get any of the 4 amazing PG’s in this years draft. Knicks!
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Anthony, Carmelo Melo continued his hot streak on offense this week. He’s been very good..on offense. Offensively Melo is really good. 1
2 Rose, Derrick Rose is also really good on offense. Well not so much the passing aspect, but he can take it to the hole at an elite level. 2
3 Hernangomez, Willy You might have noticed that I’ve been ignoring the word defense. Since the Knicks ignore it I figured I should too.   Anyway (B)Willy lit it up the 2 games he got actual minutes. No reason Noah should be getting more minutes than (B)Willy at this point. 9
4 Holiday, Justin Hi, my name is Justin Holiday. You might recognize me as the guy who digs the starting lineup out of a 10+ point defecit literally every single game. Might have something to do with that D word the guys in the top 2 spots hate so much. 5
5 Lee, Courtney Lee got way too much flac for not taking the final shot against the Wizards. There was literally a guy standing right next to him on the court yelling and waiving his arms. You’d think that was another player too. 7
6 Baker, Ron You might look at Bakers numbers and wonder why he is so high on the list. It’s not that he’s a great defender, but he does look like Gary Payton compared to Rose and Jennings. 3
7 O’Quinn, Kyle O’Quinns minutes have been all over the place lately, but in his lone start of the week he was really good. 8
8 Jennings, Brandon Jennings plays juuuust good enough to keep his spot in the rotation, but that’s just because the Knicks backcourt is a flaming dumpster fire. 10
9 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis has looked pretty bad. He had a 1 rebound game this week. Playing injured or sophomore slump? 11
10 Kuzminskas, Mindaugas Pretty bad week for Kuz, but I have a feeling he’ll bounce back. He looks pretty confident when he’s on the court. 4
11 Noah, Joakim Hi, I’m Joakim. I’m hot garbage at everything except rebounding. I airball free throws. I also start over 2 guys playing way better than me. 6
12 Plumlee, Marshall Given a few more minutes Marshall could end up being the 3rd center on this team who is better than Noah. 13
13 Thomas, Lance Now that Lance has been out I realize just how little I miss him. 12
14 Vujacic, Sasha It’s a good thing we have Sasha taking up space on the bench instead of taking a chance on guys like Chasson Randle. 14
15 Ndour, Maurice Same comment as above but replace Sasha with Maurice. 15
