2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 16

The Knicks lost every game this week, no one is playing particularly well, and now coach Fisher has been fired.  Greek Salad hasn’t been resigned yet so we’re back down to 14 players on the roster.

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

2014/15 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 20

Four games and four losses this week, with 3 of them being disgusting blowouts. It all makes sense when you take a look at the Knicks top 5 players this week. These last 20 games are going to really drag, especially if you’re looking forward to arguably the most interesting western conference playoffs we’ve ever seen.

1 Bargnani, Andrea Bargnani looked great in the two games against the Pacers. Like really good. And he didn’t look good in the Kings and Nuggets game. Reason 415 why I don’t want the Knicks to sign Hibbert, who was held to 3 points and 0-6 shooting. Against Bargs. 1
2 Shved, Alexey I am quickly becoming a Shvedhead. He’s by far the best on this team at drawing fouls, and he can rebound and pass. He even found his shot against the Nuggets. 5
3 Larkin, Shane Larkin had an OK week. He led the team in assists in two of the four games and didn’t turn the ball over too much. 8
4 Amundson, Lou Lou missed a game with back spasms and then played 14 minutes off the bench and managed to get more rebounds than our starting PF that game (Smith 1 board in 21 minutes). 2
5 Galloway, Langston Galloway had 2 decent games but he also managed to get a +/- of -40 against the Kings. How is that even possible? Continue reading

2013/14 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 6

This would be a lot easier if someone could string together more than 1 game of decent play.  Three games, three losses and lots of blame to go around.  Read along as I try to make sense of this mess of a roster.

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
