1. Carmelo Anthony, F
Of course, Carmelo Anthony is the No. 1 New York Knicks player in our power rankings. If anybody has Porzingis over the guy, then that guy is either just not paying attention or striving hard for a wild headline.
Whether or not you agreed with his re-signing, the one thing you cannot argue is the production Melo provides. Every NBA squad needs that guy who can score in droves, and Anthony provides this.
Is he the most efficient scorer? Of course not.
At the same time, you can’t argue the idea that he hasn’t played better alongside a true No. 2 guy (Porzingis).
His assists, rebounds and blocks are all up this season as compared to his career averages.
Though he’s already 31-years old, as long as he doesn’t mind giving way to KP6 as the No. 1 guy in the near future, he’ll be forever remembered as a great Knickerbocker.
