NBA Live 19: New York Knicks Player Ratings and Roster

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

The New York Knicks head into the 2018/19 season without their star Kristaps Porzingis, and will likely spend another season towards the bottom of the standings. They still have a whole lot of fans though, and if you're one of them, check out their full roster and list of plays below.

Trey Burke, PG, 79

Age: 25  

Position: PG

Height: 6’1’’

Playstyle: Backcourt Shooter

Best Stats: 85 Passing, 83 Dribbling, 83 Mid-Range Shot

Burke's first season with the Knicks was one of the most productive of his career - though he did manage just 36 games. In 21.8 minutes across these games, he put up 12.8 points on 50.3% shooting, while also contributing 2.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists.

Tim Hardaway Jr, SG, 78

Age: 26

Position: SG

Height: 6’6’’

Playstyle: Wing Scorer

Best Stats: 83 Mid-Range Shot, 83 Free Throw, 82 On Ball Defense

Hardaway Jr will play a major offensive role for the Knicks this season as they wait for the return of star forward Kristaps Porzingis. His numbers last year were the best of his career - he averaged career-highs in minutes (33.1 per game), points (17.5 per game), rebounds (3.9), assists (2.7) and steals (1.1), and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him add even more to these numbers in 2018/19.

Frank Ntilikina, SF, 78

Age: 20

Position: PG

Height: 6'5"

Playstyle: Backcourt Defender

Best Stats: 86 Speed, 85 Dribbling, 85 On Ball Defense

Frankie Smokes’ debut NBA season was met with a mixed reaction from fans. Defensively he was extremely good, but his ability to run the point effectively left a lot to be desired. Listed as a small forward in the Knicks' starting lineup in NBA Live 19, he will more than likely log a large portion of his minutes running the point. 

Lance Thomas, PF, 70

Age: 30

Position: PF

Height: 6'8’’

Playstyle: Wing Defender

Best stats: 84 3-point Shot, 82 Free Throw, 79 Inside Shot

Listed in place of the injured Porzingis at the power forward position, Thomas has some fairly big shoes to fill. A significant downgrade on Porzingis, Thomas is a floor stretching big man, who, in eight years in the league, has never averaged more than 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds or 1.2 assists.

Enes Kanter, C, 83

Age: 26

Position: C

Height: 6’11’’

Playstyle: Post Anchor

Best stats: 88 Rebounding, 87 Post Moves, 87 Post Defense

Kanter is a flawed player - as a big man he offers very little interior defense (his post defense rating in NBA Live 19 is far too high) and he can't stretch the floor at the other end. His high OVR comes about from his extraordinary inside offensive abilities, where he is one of the best post players in the game and a quality offensive rebounder. Capable of putting up huge numbers on his day, he will get plenty of playing time as a productive center for the Knicks.
