The Knicks are enjoying an excellent performance from RJ Barrett so far this season. A troubling injury to Quentin Grimes has caused concern among the New York faithful.
Without a doubt, the Knicks are a team of underrated young players coming together to compete in a suddenly daunting Eastern Conference, and Mitchell Robinson was perhaps the biggest unsung hero of the entire team.
Robinson dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers last season en route to a series victory, and his star has continued to rise this season. Robinson has two of the Knicks’ all-time greats in his sights in the offensive rebounding department, looking at Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley on the team’s all-time list.
His coach Tom Thibodeau has spoken as if he believes Robinson can continue to climb the ranks recently, a testament to his underrated ability on the scoreboard.
The Knicks beat the Charlotte Hornets by a score of 122-108 on Saturday, a game in which Robinson had four points and 14 rebounds, once again displaying his dominance on the glass that makes him a valuable member of the Knicks’ frontcourt. Knicks.
