5 players I'm most impressed with this season:
1. J.R.Smith: 18.2 points,4.8 rebounds,3.2 assists,2.2 steals on 49% shooting (72% for three)
He's playing relatively smart and is shooting lights out. Basically carried us against Dallas and Orlando. And his contract is a bargain.
2. Carmelo Anthony: 26.8 points,7.4 rebounds,1.6 assists,1 block on 45% shooting (33% for three)
He's not holding the ball too much and in every game (except in the 1st half against the Magic but the whole team sucked balls then) he showed great effort. Playing good defense,going for blocks and jumping into crowd for loose balls. You gotta love his improvement in that department.
3. Jason Kidd: 7.6 points,2.6 rebounds,3.2 assists,2.2 steals on 57% shooting (50% for three).
I know he's old but he's been playing great so far. Excellent defensively,making smart decisions,controlling the tempo and making some big shots. Also extremely efficient.
4. Ronnie Brewer: 9 points,6.2 rebounds,1.4 assists on 46% shooting (50% for three)
Excellent pick-up for the minimum. Defends well,hustles,rebounds and has shot the ball pretty well from deep (even though I don't expect that to continue)
5. Raymond Felton: 14 points,3.2 rebounds,6.4 assists,1.6 steals on 40% shooting (39% from deep)
Despite shooting only 40% from the field I like what we're seeing from Raymond Felton. He's been deadly at pick and roll and at times actually carried the team when we needed some buckets (start of the Philly game).
I thought he was a good signing (better fit than Lin) and so far he's proving me right. Even though I haven't really liked the guy in his first stint with the Knicks now he's one of my favorite Knicks.
