Year-End Grades for Every Key NY Knicks Player
Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport
It has been a depressing season for Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks.

The New York Knicks cannot wait to turn the page on the calendar after a dreadful start to the 2013-14 season. Any time a team underachieves to this degree, there is plenty of blame to go around. And yet, there have been some bright spots amid the darkness which has engulfed the franchise.

It can be difficult to assess individuals when the team plays so poorly as a whole. Solid performances are often overshadowed by selfish and incompetent teammates, and flashy statistics can be misleading when they are not accumulated within the team concept.   

In grading the players I considered their individual statistics and how those statistics impacted the team's performance. Examining the team's efficiency in various areas when Player X was on the floor compared to when Player X was on the bench was particularly helpful.

I also delved into the reasons behind an individual player's struggles and tried to account for how the play or absence of certain teammates affected his contributions to the team.  

* All statistics are current as of Dec. 23.
