Back in December, there weren’t many who excepted the NY Knicks to be in the playoff hunt in May.
Early NBA mock drafts had the team selecting Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham – group think predicting they would be so bad that the number one selection was possible.
Instead, the Knicks shattered each and every expectation that experts and fans alike put on them.
Here are the best playoff performers on the NY Knicks roster
Firmly entrenched in the playoff race, it’s time for the Knicks to once again take other people’s expectations and stick them where the sun don’t shine.
Many players on the team may not have the playoff experience that their opponents do, but inexperience hasn’t stopped them yet.
A new coach, system, and roster turnover haven’t affected the synergy we’ve seen the Knicks possess.

Randle, Barrett and other players like Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin will look at these players to help them adjust to the rigors of the NBA postseason.
