The New York Knicks began the 2017-2018 with low expectations. After coming off of a disappointing 31-51 season, the New York Knicks traded away leading scorer and star player Carmelo Anthony in the offseason. Despite these ominous signs, the new look Knicks have pleasantly surprised many fans with their 7-6 start to this new season.

This improvement from last season is largely due to the contributions of budding Knicks draft picks. 3rd year player Kristaps Porzingis has greatly improved his play from last season, and rookie Frank Ntilinka has showed many signs that he can become a valuable asset to the team as the season progresses. Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 29.5 points, a massive improvement from the 18.1 he averaged last season. This increase in points along with Porzingis chipping in 7.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game has made him the Knicks’ most main offensive focus. Whether the 7’3″ Latvian star can lead the Knicks to a playoff run this season or not, the excitement of the development of the team’s youth gives Knicks fans a lot of hope for the future of the franchise.
