The love for Amar’e Stoudemire is undeniable, but the Knicks have been burned 2 years in a row now with his injuries. They need to have an alternate plan for the future at PF. Amar’e is not going anywhere folks! So don’t think anyone will trade for his contract, not gonna happen. As a franchise they put all their eggs in 1 basket, you would of thought after last years injuries and this years surgeries, the NY Knicks would have signed or traded for a PF to spell Amar’e. Now they are in this spot and MUST look towards the future with the uncertainty of STAT at PF. Hey Knicks, go get a PF for next year and beyond that spells Amar’e or let me do it, I can find someone. People will say I am bashing Amar’e, but really am I? I am just stating the obvious issue that the Knicks have been in since last year. I have been talking about this all year and now it has come to fruition. I like Amar’e and LOVE to see him in action, pounding his chest in BEAST MODE. There is nothing better in my opinion. However, as a team you can’t be held hostage by injuries and long term contracts that are not working for you. Since you can’t shed the contract, the only obvious things to do is look for players to replace that position at a reasonable rate that doesn’t kill your cap. STAT will come back I have no doubt in my mind, but what will he bring and how long after until he breaks down again? This should be in Glen Grunwald’s mind right now. STAT’s track record the last two years has shown you that he will break down. I am being honest and realistic. The Knicks need to come to terms with this and look for new bodies to help at the PF spot. Like I said, Amar’e will be back and when he does whatever he gives you is a plus, but the security of a back up or two will make you feel more secure if and when STAT breaks down again.   Peter A  - Knickswag The post Amar’e and the Knicks Dilemma appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.
