2019/20 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 3

Three games, three different starting lineups, three losses. The Knicks are now 1-6. Lets see who is playing well and who isn’t.

1 Barrett, RJ Barrett is the only player on this roster that hasn’t been a disappointment so far. I guess Fizdale feels the same way, he’s played JR 39 and 41 minutes the last two games. 1
2 Morris, Marcus Slow start to the season but had very good games against the Celtics and Kings. Maybe this’ll be the start of a nice run for him. 3
3 Robinson, Mitchell Robinson only had one foul against the Magic, but for some reason only played 19 minutes. Fizdale is making some weird decisions. 4
4 Portis, Bobby Portis looked decent the two games he came off the bench. When he started against the Kings he looked terrible. 6
5 Knox, Kevin Every time I get excited about Knox he has a game like he did against the Kings. At least he’s showing some signs of improvement. 5
6 Randle, Julius Randle has been a big disappointment so far. He’s been getting a lot of assist, but has a ton of turnovers and surprisingly has had two straight games in which he scored 8 points. I think he’ll be much better when Payton comes back as playing point forward is clearly not working. 2 Continue reading

2019/20 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 2

I got busy at work, this was supposed to go up yesterday, so these rankings do not reflect the Magic game, so all you Frank fans can put away your pitchforks.

1 Barrett, RJ Barrett is already the Knicks best player. I’m so happy that a Knicks draft pick worked out, but that also speaks volumes about the rest of the roster. Would really like it if Fiz stopped trying to make RJ a PG. 4
2 Randle, Julius At some point Randle is going to stop turning the ball over a million times a game. His willingness to pass the ball has been nice, he’s leading the team at 5APG. 2
3 Morris, Marcus Can we get Preseason Morris back? He’s been OK, but nowhere near as good as he looked a few weeks ago. 1
4 Robinson, Mitchell So far Mitch has not been able to keep his foul woes in check. He looks great when he’s out there, but his minutes have been limited because of his fouls. 3
5 Knox, Kevin Knox has looked much improved this season and is a legit scoring threat off the bench now. 11
6 Portis, Bobby After 3 pretty terrible games Portis destroyed the Bulls. The Knicks need to make him feel slighted by the opposing team every game. 8

2019/20 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 1

As usual the first rankings of the year has a ton of new faces. 9 to be exact. Since the season hasn’t started yet this weeks rankings are mostly based on past performance and expected performance. I’m not weighing preseason very heavily. Randle was a 21 and 9 guy over the course of an 82 game season, a few underwhelming preseasons games aren’t going to drop him.
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Morris, Marcus Morris put up 14 and 6 last season as the 4th or 5th option. I expect he’ll look even better on a team with no clear cut #1 option.
2 Randle, Julius If Randle averages 21 and 9 again for the Knicks does he make the all star team in the east?
3 Robinson, Mitchell We know he can block shots, but can he stay on the court? Foul trouble is a huge concern.
4 Barrett, RJ Barrett is hard to rank right now. He’s supposed to be very good, but his shot looks a little clunky. One thing is for sure, with the Knicks sketchy backcourt he’ll have every opportunity to show what he’s got.
5 Gibson, Taj Gibson has been consistent for a decade now. He’s getting up there in age but he’ll be a solid piece off the bench. Continue reading

Episode 476: 5 Questions Entering The Season

Marc and Jay ask each other 5 questions about the Knicks as we head into presason.

2017/18 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 5

A 2-1 week that should have been a 3-0 week. If you told me the Knicks would be ahead of the Cavs in the standings 14 games into the season and LeBron was healthy I would have asked you to share whatever drug you were on. Oh and farewell to Kuz. We hardly knew ye.

1 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis efficiency was down a good amount this week. I hope it doesn’t have to do with his elbow as that probably won’t get better any time soon. The good news is that even with lower efficiency KP still averaged 25 and 7. 1
2 Lee, Courtney Lee had a great week, especially agains the Kings. He’s been an underrated part of the Knicks success. 7
3 Hardaway Jr., Tim Hardaway had monster games against the Cavs and Jazz, which makes up for the turd he layed against the Kings. He’s showing some good signs like improved defense and passing. If he can get his consistency up he’ll be worth his contract. 3
4 Ntilikina, Frank Not only did Frank have 6 steals against the Cavs, he stood up to LeBron. He’s going to be really good. Dennis Smith Jr. who? 4
5 Kanter, Enes Kanter can score and he can rebound. What he can’t seem to do is defend and that was exposed against the Cavs and Jazz. Still, he’s an emotional presence. Standing up for Frank like he did in the Cavs game is important. 2
6 Jack, Jarrett Jack averaged over 5 assists per game this week. I’ll take it. 9
7 McDermott, Doug No one on the bench really stood out this week. Doug was the only one to have a positive +/- in all 3 games. 6
8 O’Quinn, Kyle Quiet week from KOQ. Not terrible, but not as good as the last few weeks. 5
9 Thomas, Lance I’m glad I didn’t bow down to the pressure and issue a Lance apology. 8
10 Dotson, Damyean Dotson looked really good against the Kings and then played 1 minute over the next 2 games. 10
11 Beasley, Michael Has the Beasley experiment come to an end already? 11
12 Noah, Joakim Coach said he’s bringing back Noah slowly. Zero minutes over the first two games is an excellent pace if you ask me. 16
13 Hernangomez, Willy Now that Noah is back I think the only way Willy is getting on the court is if he leaves hundreds of marbles in the locker room in the hopes of multiple sprained ankles. 13
14 Baker, Ron Baker is out of the rotation. At least we’re paying him twice market value! 12
15 Sessions, Ramon I remember really wanting Sessions on the team. That was about 7 years ago but still. 14
