The Top 10 Rookies in New York Knicks History

The New York Knicks have historically given their rookies a good deal of playing time.  In turn, the rookies have consistently delivered.  This year is no exception.

First-round pick Iman Shumpert is already averaging over 30 minutes a game.  Josh Harrellson is up around 20.  Both are outperforming expectations.

Of all the Knicks' rookies, well over 100 since the team's first days in 1946, about 35 solid candidates emerged to stake a claim to the top 10.

Last year's second-round pick, Landry Fields, was 1st Team All-Rookie.  The Knicks have had 14, three of whom won Rookie of the Year.  Those three made the list, of course.

But there are a few surprises along the way, including the owner of the best rookie season in Knicks history.  It's not Patrick Ewing.  He's fourth.  It's not Willis Reed either.

So who is No. 1, then? And No.'s 2 and 3?  And how does the rest of the top 10 play out?

Here are your answers—but first some sort-of honorable mentions.
