5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
According to a report by Newsday, New York Knickerbockers player Amar’e Stoudemire is aiming for a return. After knee surgery, he has a target date of January 1, 2013. Stoudemire said that the first of the year is “a possibility.”
In all honesty, the New York Knicks are doing very well without him. The team seems to have great chemistry with Carmelo Anthony running the show for them. With Amar’e, their movement becomes slower. Perhaps the Knicks should consider shipping him off elsewhere. Their record with him is better than their record with him in their lineup.
