The annual NBA GMs survey came out with a detailed list of the best, most talented, and most likely to do (fill in the blank). Unfortunately for the Knicks, front office execs weren't exactly picking out most of the talent from the city of New York. Instead, the Knicks rarely showed up in the GMs survey save for a few “Also receiving votes” cameos and one sneaky appearance from Carmelo Anthony.

2. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City — 31 percent
3. James Harden, Houston — 10.3 percent
4. Carmelo Anthony, New York — 6.9 percent
The Knicks did show up some other places. Robin Lopez received a vote for toughest NBA player and most underrated player acquisition. Kristaps Porzingis also received one for which rookie will be the best player in five years. Heck, the Knicks even got a vote for which team will be the most improved in 2015-16. Granted, the Knicks could win 34 games and double their victory total from last season.
