As a follow up to the outstanding column that colleague Bryan Gibberman put up earlier today about the Knicks rotation, I would like to display the following charts regarding the Knicks’ minute breakdown per player at each position. The first two are hypothetical situations and the last chart displays what occurred in the Warriors game last week. I too am very much bothered by the teams coaching right now, but Bryan covered all of that already so there’s no need to be repetitive.
This chart assumes that Carmelo Anthony will be back sooner than later. Additionally, while rotations tend to shorten in the playoffs, it’s my opinion that would not be optimal for this Knicks team. Notes regarding each chart can be found below them.
