#2 Kevin Knox and Robinson are steadily coming into their own

Robinson shot almost 70% from the field during his rookie year.
Robinson shot almost 70% from the field during his rookie year.

While Knox averaged 12.8 points playing over 28 minutes per game, it’s fair to say that his first year left a lot to be desired. He showed incredible promise but was fairly inconsistent throughout the season, shooting over 38% at one point and then dropping all the way below 30% as well.

However, he averaged 16.8 points on 40% shooting from the field and 38% from three during the summer league and is still one of the pivotal elements of the Knicks' offense. Only if he could continue to move on an upward curve in terms of his production, his team might benefit in a huge way in the future.

Robinson played in 66 games (19 of which he started in) this past season and managed to contribute around 7.3 ppg in just over 20 minutes of playtime per contest. Now that the Knicks have help, he needs to step up on his role coming off the bench and capitalize on the opportunity.
