Surprised by any name on this list?  28 year-old rookie Chris Copeland has been terrific this season for the Knicks.  The power forward is shooting over 80% from the foul line, a Tyson Chandler equaling 70% at the rim, and a Carmelo Anthony like 38% from 3-point land.

Unfortunately Copeland hasn’t played 20 minutes in any game in over 2 months.  Should Mike Woodson be starting Chris Copeland down the stretch run?
