The Knicks have experienced a great deal of success so far this season without the player who was once the center piece of their team, Amar’e Stoudemire. With Stoudemire injured, the Knicks have meshed in a new way, and start at 18-5.
With Stoudemire set to come back at some point in the near future, people have been speculating as to how the Knicks will find some space for him. The $100 million man might actually have to start off in the D-League, as crazy as it sounds.
Amar’e Stoudemire will practice this week with the Knicks’ D-League team, Woodson says.

With the Knicks’ limited practice time, Woodson says Stoudemire’s best chance of getting reps is with the D-League squad.

Imagine Stoudemire playing in the D-League? It would certainly be a fall of grace from someone once considered one of the best players in the league.
Amar’e had a great start to his tenure with the Knicks, but has yet to fully mesh with fellow star Carmelo Anthony.

Because Stoudemire will be able to get much more work in with the team's D-League squad than he would with his teammates, the Knicks elected to go that route.
New York Knicks power forward Amare Stoudemire is on the way back to New York’s active roster in the very near future. The 100 ton elephant we see in the room is what will Amare bring to the team when he returns from his latest injury?
Since the first day of the season the NY Knicks have been waiting for STAT to return to the active roster. We have heard very little from Amare...
Amare Stoudemire has not played for the New York Knicks this season. Depending on your outlook, it's either a good thing that he is coming back and can help the team continue their success, or it's a bad thing because he could derail their chemistry. No matter, what side you land on, Stoudemire is a proven player in the NBA, he's an All-Star, and he is getting close...
Charles Barkley is never one to be short of an opinion.
The New York Knicks are never short of opinions on their performance.
It was only natural that Chuck would proffer a critique of the Knicks and their surprisingly potent NBA season to date. Newsday quotes Barkley as such:
Everybody in New York thinks the Knicks are Playboy bunnies, and I have been telling...
New York Knicks weekly breakdown: 12/9 – 12/15
The Knicks reeled off four straight victories this week, with wins over the Nuggets, Nets, Lakers, and Cavaliers. With an 18-5 record, the Knicks opened a five-game lead in the division, along with a two-game lead over the Miami Heat for best in the East.
How it went down:
The undisputed highlight of the week was...
We know Melo gets buckets. We know he can carry his team to success. He has a track record in college, but the pros are a different matter. But he has been scorching. He’s probably the biggest reason with the Knicks being relevant. In fact, this is what Kobe had to say about it. The [...]
Yikes. Jeremy Lin and J.R. Smith trade back-to-back airball three point attempts in the 2nd quarter:
Will Amare accept a lesser role?
Spike Lee showed up to MSG earlier than usual on Monday night to deliver backup point guard, Pablo Prigioni a new pair of orange and blue kicks. “You can’t wear purple, man!” proclaimed Lee who said the point guard even wore the colorway against the Lakers last week. “This is the orange and blue, baby” Lee tells Prigioni who agreed to give the new pair a try.
NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks have found little need to miss Jeremy Lin so far this season. But they would miss playing him and his current Houston Rockets team even less. Lin had a triumphant return to Madison Square Garden on Monday as he teamed with James Harden to lead the Rockets to a 109-96 victory that spoiled the Knicks' undefeated home record. Houston's second...
NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin acknowledged it felt odd walking back into the building in which he became a national sensation. The Houston Rockets guard didn't know what kind of reaction to expect from all those Madison Square Garden fans who cheered him last season while wearing his No. 17 New York Knicks jersey, savoring the craze known as "Linsanity." When Lin took...

Jeremy Lin’s return to the Madison Square Garden was a memorable one exploding the New York Knicks on Monday night 109-96.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN NY, Amar’e Stoudemire refuted recent rumors that he was targeting the Knicks Christmas day game against the Lakers as a return date. The Knicks forward, who practiced with the Erie BayHawks Tuesday, said he may not be back by Christmas and did not offer any specifics on a return date.
The beginning of the regular season allows us to make some…silly predictions, to say the least. If you don't believe me, look just at last year's shortened season. This time last season, the Denver Nuggets were being lauded as a finals team, the Philadelphia 76ers looked like one of the best teams in the East, the Celtics were struggling, Indiana was...
