Ranking Every NBA Backcourt From Worst to Best

28. New York Knicks — Frank Ntilikina and Tim Hardaway Jr.


The Knicks have a number of guards that could be starting on any given night. To close out 2018, New York employed backcourt combos that included Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay and Courtney Lee. However, those lineups saw minutes when the Knicks were far out of the playoff picture. If the Knicks are playing to win, Ntilikina and Hardaway are their best shot. Both guys are capable on defense, but must take the next step on the offensive end to be truly competitive.
