2021/22 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 7

A 2-1 week with the loss going to the Suns who were on a 14 game win streak at the time. 11-9 25% into the season, how are we feeling?
Rank Player Comments Last Weeks Rank
1 Burks, Alec Burks has been the most consisten player for weeks now. Shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, he was very dependable last season as well. He got his first start of the season with Walker and Rose out and looked good in the starting unit. 2
2 Fournier, Evan Look who decided to catch fire the day after I dropped him from my fantasy team! 7
3  Immanuel, Quickley Two straight solid weeks from IQ, maybe we can ease off the panic button…just a little. 4
4 Toppin, Obi Other than the Suns game Toppin continues to play well, however his 3 point percentage is down to 18%. 3
5 Randle, Julius How good can the Knicks be when their best player has 1 good game a week? 5
6 Robinson, Mitchell Mitch came back from his 37th injury of the season and looked OK, still can’t do anything on offense except dunk though. 6
7 Rose, Derrick Last week I said you can count on Rose to show up every night. I should have added (when he’s not inured). Hopefully he’s back soon, he’s been the Knicks best player for most of the season. 1
8 Barrett, RJ A mediocre week from RJ. Sadly that’s good enough for his 2nd best week. 8
9  Grimes, Quentin Grimes got to play the last 3 games. Didn’t really move the needle in either direction, but the next few guys below him moved the needle in the wrong direction so he moves up by default. 13
10  Noel, Nerlens HE’S INJURED AGAIN?!?!?!?! 10
11  Gibson, Taj How many games has there been where all 3 of the Knicks centers have been healthy? 11
12 McBride, Miles I thought with Walker and Rose out we’d see more Grimes and McBride. I was wrong. 14
13 Sims, Jericho If the 4th string center still didn’t get much run with 2 of the 3 guys below him out, the Knicks should send him to the G league to get some run. 12
14 Walker, Kemba I feel bad. Kemba was so excited to play in NY. He just doesn’t have it anymore though. The stats speak for themselves, the Knicks are #1 in the league on defense when Kemba sits and dead last when he plays. 9
15 Knox, Kevin We had a Knox sighting! On the actual basketball court! During a game! 15

2021/22 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 6

The Knicks are 9-8 but it feels like they’re 4-13. They barely beat the 1-14 Rockets. Lately when they win it feels like an absolute struggle. They better get it together soon because it feels like this could get ugly fast.

1 Rose, Derrick You can count on Rose to show up every night. He hasn’t been great every night but hasn’t had a terrible game all season and he’s been healthy. It’s great that he’s playing like this but not a good sign that he’s in the #1 spot. 3
2 Burks, Alec Burks snapped out of his shooting slump and led the bench mob in a number of games, including a podcast saving win over the Rockets this weekend. 10
3 Toppin, Obi Toppin outplayed Randle for a few times over the last two weeks. Great to see him improved so much since last season where he looked unplayable a lot of the time. 7
4  Immanuel, Quickley Quickley also came out of his shooting slump. The bench was the only reason the Knicks won any games over the last two weeks and IQ was a huge part of that. 8
5 Randle, Julius Randle was downright bad a number of times recently. The Bulls game being the first time we’ve seen the Randle of last season in what feels like a very long time. Is it in his head? I have a hard time believing all of last season was a fluke. 1
6 Robinson, Mitchell Somehow Mitch has been injured 37 times in only 17 games. 5
7 Fournier, Evan Fourniers only good game this week was the day after I dropped him from my fantasy team. He went back to his disappearing act against the Bulls. 4
8 Barrett, RJ Holy crap what’s going on with Barrett? He looks completely lost and his shot is nowhere to be found. 2
9 Walker, Kemba Even when Kemba puts up good numbers you look at the plus minus and he’s a minus. 6
10  Noel, Nerlens Noel came back from his 12th injury this season and…..let’s say there’s some rust to work off. 11
11  Gibson, Taj Considering the Knicks centers are made of glass and teflon I’m glad Taj is always there for insurance. 9
12 Sims, Jericho I have a feeling there’s going to be a game this season where he’s the only healthy center. 12
13  Grimes, Quentin If Kemba keeps playing like this we might see Grimes sooner than later 13
14 McBride, Miles McBride tore up the G league last week 14
15 Knox, Kevin Hi Kevin. 15
