2018-19 Knicks Player Review: Kadeem Allen

There are a quite a few NBA players who may not be the biggest, fastest, or most skilled, but carve out a unique and valuable role on a team thanks to their energy level.

Kadeem Allen honestly turned a lot of heads around this past season. A former 2017 second-round pick by the Boston Celtics, Allen began his season in the G League with the Westchester Knicks, before quickly establishing himself as one of the team’s/league’s best playmakers. It was his balance between being strong, shifty, and unselfish that made Allen not only productive in Westchester but also at the next level, as he was called up by the NY Knicks in January.
