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.
Rank Player Comments Last Weeks Rank
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

2021/22 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 4

The Knicks went 2-3 since last ranking and are 7-5 this season. Very inconsistent so far, but have a good record and haven’t played to their pottential yet.
Rank Player Comments Last Weeks Rank
1 Randle, Julius The Knicks needed Randle to deliver against Philly and boy did he. When he’s hot he’s one of the best. 2
2 Barrett, RJ Barrett came back down to earth a bit this week but he’s established himself as the clear number two on this team. 1
3 Rose, Derrick Right now Rose is the only dependable guy off the bench. He’s been outplaying Kemba, but the Knicks need to keep Rose with the 2nd unit, they need his presence more than the starters. 6
4 Fournier, Evan Fournier does his thing every night. He hasn’t gone off but as a 3rd or 4th option he doesn’t really have to. 5
5 Robinson, Mitchell We saw what a difference maker Robinson can be when he’s on the court. Staying on the court is a problem though. He’s already back from his latest injury so that’s a good sign. 4
6 Walker, Kemba Kemba shows flashes of the Kemba of old, but he’s also getting torched on the defensive end. Hopefully that improves as the season moves along. 3
7 Toppin, Obi I’ve seen people wanting to see more of an Obi/Randle frantcourt. With Noel out again they might get their wish. 9
8  Immanuel, Quickley Had a few flashes of breaking out of his very shaky start. Hopefully he continues to improve as the season progresses. 10
9  Gibson, Taj I thought we’d be seeing a lot more of Taj this week but Robinson recovered quickly. Still nice to have a guy of Taj’s talent as a 3rd option. 7
10 Burks, Alec Burks has been a disappointment so far. He isn’t hitting the shots he did last season. I’m sure he’ll snap out of it. Hopefully very soon, that 2nd unit needs it. 8
11  Noel, Nerlens It was so good seeing Noel back on the court. Too bad it lasted less than a weekend. 14
12 Sims, Jericho Sims needs a bit of development but has potential. 12
13  Grimes, Quentin 11th man in a 10 man rotation. 11
14 McBride, Miles Right now McBride is the backup to the backups backup. 13
15 Knox, Kevin Hi Kevin. 15

2021/22 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 3

The Knicks went 3-0 this week and are tied for the best record in the league at 5-1. The best part about that is I feel like the Knicks aren’t even playing up to their potential so there’s room to get even better as the season progresses.
Rank Player Comments Last Weeks Rank
1 Barrett, RJ Barrett had his best game of the season against the Pelicans, maybe even his career, netting 35 points. He’s playing defense at an extremely high level and now his shots are falling. 2
2 Randle, Julius Randle has forced some shots lately and has made a few bad decisions but seems very willing to distribute (almost 7apg ghis week) and sacrifice for the greater good. 1
3 Walker, Kemba Kemba’s knee looks fine so far, and he’s balling, averaging 20ppg this week and looking very confident (and happy). 8
4 Robinson, Mitchell Robinson still isn’t scoring a lot but he doesn’t need to with all the options the Knicks now how. The shots he does take are money. He hit ever single shot he took this week. A perfect 10-10. His defense has been huge as well. 4
5 Fournier, Evan Evan was a little off against the Bulls but looked great against the 76ers and Pelicans 5
6 Rose, Derrick With Kemba playing as well as he has it was inevitable Rose would take a step back. It’s nice having someone like Rose as a backup. 3
7  Gibson, Taj Taj has found the fountain of youth, looking real good in the backup role. Probably won’t see as much of him going forward with Noel due to come back very soon. 10
8 Burks, Alec A quiet week like this from Burks last season would have been a disaster for the Knicks, this season Burks is more of a luxury than a necessity. I’m confident he’ll still have big moments, just not as many. 6
9 Toppin, Obi Last season Obi looked overwhelmed. This year he looks like he belongs, it’s just that there are a lot of guys playing really well ahead of him. He’s shown flashes of being really good, excited about his potential. 7
10  Immanuel, Quickley Quickley is looking like a 2nd round pick this year. It’s still early, the Knicks have depth but would like to see him turn it around. 9
11  Grimes, Quentin Looks like Thibs has settled on a 10 man rotation so not much to comment about from here on. 11
12 Sims, Jericho Once Noel is back I can probably safely tuck Sims away at the bottom of the list. 12
13 McBride, Miles I think McBride was in for one play last game. 13
14  Noel, Nerlens Almost back, maybe this week. Or not. Who knows? 14
15 Knox, Kevin Will Knox join all the other ex Knicks in Dallas next season? 15
