“All he cares about right now is helping the team and winning,” a source close to Stoudemire said. “He’d be fine with coming off the bench if that’s what they want.”
For whatever reason, Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have not seemed to mesh well since New York paired them together.

MILWAUKEE -- Before his team hosted the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles wasn't shy about what the Bucks had to do in order to win their second consecutive game.
