New York Knicks Midseason Report Cards

C Grades

Phil Jackson, C+

Wait, what? So you’re telling us the best you can do is Arron Afflalo and Robin Lopez with all of that money? As Knicks fans, you expected more.

Still, though, you have to admit the drafting of Kristaps Porzingis saved this guy. And to think he made a change at the head coaching position so quickly allows us to realize he’s not just a figurehead in the president role.

Lou Amundson, C

Honestly, it’s tough to grade out Lou Amundson. He’s a nice No. 11 or No. 12 guy on a roster. He can add a little toughness and versatility to the front-line.

Jerian Grant, C-

Rookie Jerian Grant’s grade is tricky. Knicks fans were extremely excited to see what the Notre Dame product could bring to the table in his rookie season.

They soon realized Grant had a long way to go.

His handles are very below average and his sense of the game at the professional level is just not there yet. Still, his youth and athleticism provides a much better alternative than some current options on the squad.

Sasha Vujacic, C-

On some nights Sasha Vujacic plays the role as cheerleader, and other nights he’s in the rotation as a key reserve.

Whatever the role is, this guy will be there will full enthusiasm.
