Amare Stoudemire is back, but the Knicks probably aren’t too thrilled about that fact.
Despite getting one of the league’s top offensive players back from injury, New York was doing just fine without Stoudemire. Led by Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith in the forward’s absence, the Knicks got off to a hot start and had Madison Square Garden buzzing on a nightly...
New York Knicks have announced that Amare Stoudemire will give it a go tonight vs the Portland Trailblazers. Stat’s addition to the roster comes at a perfect time. Sheed has been ailing and Tyson needs to cut back his minutes. In addition to that, and extra scoring punch will help the team get over the hump offensively. The real question is how is the health of Stat and will his...
For those of you wondering how New York Knicks fans would react to forward Amare Stoudemire returning to play his first game of the season, you can find out in this clip.Stoudemire (who has been out with a surgically-repaired left knee) came off the bench in the first quarter of play in the Knicks/Trail Blazers game to a rousing ovation from Madison Square Garden:
Via RealGM.com via New York Daily News:
The Atlanta Hawks ran Mike Woodson out-of-town after they were swept by the Orlando Magic in the 2010 Playoffs, but Woodson has been in New York since taking over for Mike D’Antoni late last season. You can certainly count Stoudemire amongst Woodson’s supporters, as he is reportedly the first coach to teach Stoudemire defense.

Although the Portland Trailblazers spoiled Stoudemire’s return, he still managed to walk away with something better… his old self.
As I pointed out in today’s Starting Lineup post, Amare Stoudemire’s return to the floor could’ve gone better. That said, it could’ve gone worse, too. While it would’ve been completely unreasonable to expect a player to sit out 30 consecutive games and come back to dominate, it wouldn’t have been unreasonable to presume STAT would need more than a game or two to regain...
Good news Knicks fans. Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut tonight agaisnt the Portland Trailblazers.
It will be an exciting night to see Stoudemire back on the court for the Knicks and he will become a factor this season.
I am assuming he will come off the bench tonight unless Carmelo Anthony can't give it a go tonight coming off his knee injury.
Amar'e rings in 2013 by making long-awaited Knicks return.
The New York Knicks have sputtered recently, losing three of their last four with defense largely to blame.
Though Amare Stoudemire's return is grabbing attention, New York may have to look elsewhere to shore up that end of the court on Thursday night as it hosts the red-hot San Antonio Spurs, one of the league's best offensive teams.
The Knicks (21-10) still own an impressive...
At full strength are the Knicks better or worse?
The Portland Trail Blazers overcame Carmelo Anthony's season high-tying 45 points and spoiled Amare Stoudemire's season debut, beating the New York Knicks 105-100 on Tuesday night.
Nicolas Batum scored 26 points, Damian Lillard had 21 points, six assists and five rebounds, and LaMarcus Aldridge had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Portland.
Stoudemire finished with six points...
The NY Knicks have a 21-9 record and one of the best teams in the league, but yet they are injured and banged up at the moment. Iman, Stat, Sheed, Melo, and Raymond are the players out at the moment. The Knicks have players ready to get back to prominence and some that are in the beginning stages of the healing process. Here is the breakdown of their status.
It may be a new year on the calendar but for the NBA, the year is a third of the way done and both New York basketball teams have been in the news for various reasons. The Knicks have started the season as one of the best teams in the league while the Nets have been rather disappointing in their first year in Brooklyn.
Both teams should make the playoffs, but to make it through...
In a 105-100 loss to the Trail Blazers, a relatively-healthy Knicks squad suffered what was just their third home defeat of the season. Thirty-one games in, Amare Stoudemire finally made his season debut, which could’ve gone better. Stoudemire finished with six points, a rebound, a block, and a pair of turnovers in about 17 minutes of playing time. He had some success working...
