2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 18

I included the Wizards game in this weeks rankings since doing a rankings on 1 game would be dumb. So now we get to add two losses and a win to that Wizards game.  The Knicks added Jimmer, which sadly enough is the only bright spot. The team looks demoralized and the playoffs look like a pipe dream.  Here’s your damn rankings.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Melo is looking really frustrated lately.   You can imagine why. He’s playing really well lately, assisting at a career high rate and .1 rebounds away from a career high rebound rate, but most of the team, as usual, stinks. 4
2 Lopez, Robin The last two games Robin has looked crazy good.   It’s amazing what happens when you get your center involved on the offensive end, something Chandler never got to experience. 1
3 Porzingis, Kristaps The shot is still up and down and now the rebounding has come down a bit, but Porzingis is clearly the 3rd best player on this team. 2
4 Galloway, Langston I’m trying to forget about his zero point performance against the Raptors (1 of 3 Knicks guards to do that on the same night!).   At least he can defend, something the rest of the backcourt can’t claim. 5
5 Thomas, Lance Lance didn’t get zero points against the Raptors, but he did against the Nets on 0-5 shooting. That’s still good enough for a top 5 spot this week.  That’s how bad this team has been. 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

Knicks at Pistons – 11-20-13 – Game Recap

Written by William Lee
Both the New York Knicks and the Detroit Pistons were shorthanded, but it was the Pistons who overcame the adversities and was victorious Tuesday night. Winning 92-86 despite their starting point guard Brandon Jennings leaving the game early with an upset stomach. Pistons were also without point guards Chauncey Billups (knee tendinitis) and Will Bynum (groin, hamstring). The Knicks were also without their starting point guard Raymond Felton, who missed the game because of hamstring soreness and a pinched nerve in his hip. Beno Udrih stepped into the starting lineup, but was held scoreless in 18 minutes of action. Mike Woodson decided to go to a big lineup to match up with the Pistons’ large frontline. Without Tyson Chandler and Metta World Peace, Kenyon Martin joined Udrih in the starting lineup for his first start of the season. Woodson also decided to put JR Smith back to his sixth man role, and inserted Iman Shumpert back into the starting lineup.
Both teams got off to a hot start, shooting over 50% in the first quarter. The Pistons lead 26-24 after one period, behind seven points from Josh Smith and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope respectively. Andrea Bargnani led the way for the Knicks with nine first quarter points, highlighted by a driving and one dunk. The Knicks cooled off in the second quarter missing 14/21 shots, with so many misses, the Knicks kept themselves in the game with five offensive rebounds in the quarter. Amare Stoudemire showed flashes, with back to back spectacular dunks, part of an 8-0 Knicks run, to take a 34-28 lead with 8 minutes left in the first half. Brandon Jennings came back into the game, and was content with setting his teammates up, collecting four assist the rest of the half. With his fourth assist leading to a Gigi Datome buzzer beating three to end the half, to tie the game up at 43-43. Continue reading

Random Thoughts on Tonight’s Game Against the Pistons

  • I love super aggressive driving Bargs
  • It helps when Drummond falls for the pump fake every single time
  • Speaking of Drummond, how does one shoot 16% from the free throw line?  A child would probably hit 20%
  • We should definitely give a max contract to a guy who literally quits on defense whenever he misses a shot
  • The play where Peyton Siva was at the 3 point line and Amare was in front of him and for some reason assumed he would shoot and turned completely around only to have the player run past him pretty much sums up why Amare is a detriment even when his offense is kinda sorta not a travesty.
  • The entire Knicks team has no idea how to play help defense.
  • You know you suck on D when Priggy screams at you.
  • JR almost shot .500 and would have if he didn’t take 2 halfcourt shots.  In completely related news this wasn’t a weekend game.
  • Bargnani was super efficient on offense in the first half.  Good thing the Knicks went with iso-ball in the 2nd half.
  • I was worried no one was going to let an opposing guard run amok tonight since Felton was out.  Guess I was worried for no reason.
  • Things look bad now but at least we gave away 6 out of our 8 draft picks over the next 4 years……

Episode 195: No Time for Happiness

Round two started off with a thud.  Jay and Marc are angrier than ever and tell you why all show.  I think we mention the round 1 victory for about a minute, but since round 2 started so quick or happiness was immediately crushed by the weight of this terrible game.
