In the NBA, it has been proven time and time again that you cannot just take the five "best players" and expect them to perform the best. For one reason or another, certain lineups just work better than others.
With the All-Star break upon us, we have now reached the point in the season where we have enough data to draw some conclusions about how different combinations of players perform together. To follow are the Knicks' six "best" lineups this year, ordered mostly by raw plus/minus rating with a little bit of common sense sprinkled in.
The requirement for this list is having played together for at least 20 minutes. The measure of how each unit performed is plus/minus per 48 minutes.
