2013/14 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 20

This week is pretty much the exact opposite of last week.  The Knicks won all four games, lots of players got involved and everyone looks energized.  Oh yeah and Phil Jackson might become president.  Kind of awkward timing for all this considering there is a protest planned for tomorrow.  Lets see how the Knicks look at they race to keep their very slim playoff hopes alive:
       
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Stoudemire, Amar’e The only things Amare did this week was to move into the starting lineup, find his midrange shot again, rebound at a nice clip, block shots and play acceptable defense.  I never expected Amare to every claim the #1 spot, but the Knicks are full of surprises lately. 4
2 Anthony, Carmelo Melo has been getting a lot more assists lately.  It’s amazing what happens when your teammates actually hit shots. 1
3 Chandler, Tyson Chandler missed the Philly game due to personal reasons, but before that had 3 double-doubles. 2
4 Smith, J.R. JR was also a big part of this turnaround, moving into the starting lineup, not taking as many shots and shooting more efficiently.  He’s also been getting a few nice looking assists every game. 14
5 Shumpert, Iman While he hasn’t been lighting up the box score, a look at his +/- numbers shows you the impact he has had on the court this week.  Pretty much the only bench player who’s been productive. 13 Continue reading

Eastern Conference Preview

Miami Heat – The defending champs replaced Ronny Turiaf and Eddy Curry with Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis and Josh Harrellson. The rich got richer this offseason. All Ray Allen, arguably the best 3 point shooter of all time, has to do is hit wide open 3′s off of LeBron and Wade double-teams. Unless Wade breaks down (I won’t even say LeBron as I’m not sure he’s human) the Eastern Conference playoffs start with a finals rematch against Boston.

Jeff Green is back

Boston Celtics – Boston replaced Ray Allen with Courtney Lee and Jason Terry. They got rid of a bunch of players who weren’t contributing much (Marquis Daniels, Ryan Holins, Jermaine O’Neal and Greg Stiemsma)and replaced them with Leandro Barbosa, Jason Collins, Jared Sullinger and Darko Milicic. Jeff Green is also healthy this season which will enable Boston to rest Paul Pierce more than last year. They are still going to be a great defensive team, but now have scoring options at every position. When Avery Bradley comes back, this team is super deep and clearly the #1 threat to dethrone Miami in the east. Continue reading
