Due to Amar’e Stoudemire’s recent knee surgery, the NY Knicks medical and coaching staffs have agreed to cap the forward’s playing time at 30 minutes per game for the remainder of the season.
“Thirty minutes is his max and whatever damage he does in those 30 minutes, he’ll be out there doing it,’’ Woodson said. “I can’t go over 30 for his sake as far as physical condition is concerned.’’
“He doesn’t need much more than that,’’ Woodson said. “STAT’s been in this league a number of years and he can get a lot done in 30 minutes. I think if he keeps his mind and body physically ready for it, 30 minutes is enough minutes for him to do damage.’’
However, Woodson said: “I’m trying not to burn him early and then run out of minutes”.
This helps to explain why the Knicks signed veteran Kenyon Martin over the weekend, and why Stoudemire hasn’t been vocally upset about not starting.
Mike Woodson has done a good job so far of managing Stoudemire’s limited playing time and winning so I don’t see the limitation having a huge effect on the team’s success.
BEST OF MAXIM
The success of the 70’s Knicks was built around their legendary teamwork and unselfish play. The success of the 90’s Knicks was built squarely on defense and toughness. Over the years, that identity has resulted in some of the game’s toughest and most physical players donning the Orange & Blue Knickerbockers uniforms. Who is arguably one of the toughest NBA players ever...
Despite sort of looking like Droopy Dog, Mike Woodson has managed to keep his players’ attention as Knicks coach. This is not a small accomplishment, since New York’s roster is filled with players who have had problems with other coaches in the past.
On Tuesday, Woodson offered a glimpse into one thing that might help him relate to today’s players. Woodson wore a T-shirt with...
I have listened to many debates, conversations, and opinions about who the top five players are in the National Basketball Association today. In my eyes, the top four are clear cut, consisting of Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Dwayne Wade. So who would you say is the number five?
Carmelo Anthony has been tossed around in this conversation every time it’s brought...
Rasheed Wallace's season is over.
The New York Knicks forward is out eight weeks with a broken foot that will require season-ending surgery, according to the New York Times' Howard Beck. This is a real-life blow -- not a fantasy one.
Wallace, at 38, no longer was the fantasy force of the past. In 20 games, he averaged 7.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and .8 blocks while playing...
Couldn't find any Tone Loc shirts?
The Knicks were able to get a much-needed win in what was perhaps the most entertaining game of the 2012-2013 NBA Season. Despite a career-high scoring performance from Stephen Curry with 54 on 18-28 shooting (11-13 from three), The Knicks proved that team basketball and big stops in critical situations can get it done.
The Knicks started off hot in this game making momentum-boosting...

Yesterday during practice, Chris Herring uploaded the picture above of to his Twitter account.
Luckily for Woodson it appears he will be the coach for the Knicks for some time to come, so I hope he made multiple versions of these shirts in perhaps different colors as well.
I’m not sure why he wears a shirt of himself, but I like it.
Guess I’ll have to get me one that says writer...
The 76ers and the Knicks got a little heated last night when Tyson Chandler pushed Spencer Hawes in the third period. Carmelo Anthony seemed to punch Hawes in the back of the head while going for a rebound, which triggered Hawes to turn around and give him an ear full. Chandler came to defend Melo, and shoved Hawes out of the way. Hawes tried to get back into his face, but referees...
A return to Madison Square Garden seemed to spark the New York Knicks.
Based on their recent performances against the Golden State Warriors, they might need more than just home-court advantage to avoid a return to their losing ways.
The Knicks look to close out an up-and-down month by getting a rare win over a Warriors team that will be without David Lee on Wednesday night.

76ers vs. Knicks
For the first time in the Mike Woodson era the Knicks will enter a game on a four-game losing streak. It is not to panic yet for the Knicks, as they still sit atop the Atlantic Division, but that can change depending on the result of the game tonight. The Knicks need to start picking up victories over divisional opponents, as that is a...
Hours before Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors dropped 54 points on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Mike Woodson spoke with the media New York about suffering a major loss. Yes, the Knicks would go on to beat the Warriors, but Woodson’s pre-game defeat focused instead on the left foot of Rasheed Wallace.
His season is likely over. But what about Wallace’s...
