It was another sorry week for the Knicks, as a 1-3 stretch was punctuated last night by a blowout at the hands of the dismal Minnesota Timberwolves. The team as a whole has a glaze of disinterest, but that doesn't mean there weren't some solid individual performances. In fact, our newest player of the week is the one guy who seems to do his best work with a glaze of disinterest.
Wilson Chandler didn't smile and probably didn't say much, but he had himself a very respectable week of basketball. Silent Wil averaged 18.5 points, 3.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 50% shooting over four games. His dazzling ability to take off from anywhere and finish at the rim was on display, as Wil limited himself to 7 combined threes (and that's including 4 in the chuckfest last night) in favor of acrobatic flights to the basket.
Nobody could stop him. Not even Jared Jeffries.
