NBA 2K19: 1994-1995 New York Knicks Player Ratings and Roster

NBA 2K19: 1994-1995 New York Knicks Player Ratings and
Roster

Based on the regular season success experienced by this team, their playoff performance was a bit disappointing.

Ewing was an All-Star, Starks was the top 3-point shooter in the league and Anthony Mason was the 6th man of the year. This combination of talent across the roster sure sounds like a recipe for success. It actually was to some extent, with the Knicks finishing 2nd in the East and a 55-27 record. However, they would exit the playoffs early with a conference semifinals loss to the Pacers, 3 games to 4.

Starting Lineup

Patrick Ewing, C (OVR 90)

Age: 32

Height: 7’0”

Traits: Two-Way Center

Best Stats: Post Offense, Strength, Blocks

Even though Patrick Ewing was slightly past his prime years, he was still very much effective. He averaged 23.9 points, 11 rebounds and 2 blocks per game while leading this team.

John Starks, SG (OVR 79)

Age: 29

Height: 6’3”

Traits: All-Around Shooting Guard

Charles Oakley, PF (OVR 78)

Derek Harper, PG (OVR 76)

Age: 33

Height: 6’4”

Traits: Crafty Playmaker

Best Stats: Ball Handling, 3PT, Passing

Starks and Harper made for a solid backcourt, as Harper filled his playmaking role as needed. He averaged 11.5 points, 5.7 assists and 1 steal per game. He was also good for 1.3 3-pointers made and was usually the 3rd or 4th scoring option on the floor most nights.

Charles Smith, PF (OVR 73)

Traits: Two-Way Power Forward

Best Stats: Layups, Vertical, Blocks

Smith was a decent power forward option and could score somewhat efficiently. Playing some as a starter and some as a bench player, Smith averaged 12.7 points and 1.3 blocks per game. However, his rebounding was relatively weak for his position and height, averaging only 4.3 per game.
