Carmelo and Amar’ecredit: http://2.bp.blogspot.com
It was only a few years ago that the New York Knicks were clearing out cap space, seemingly to try to bring LeBron James to town in free agency. We all know that didn’t happen, but they have acquired quite a bit of talent over the past few seasons, and have at least made themselves relevant and dangerous.
Of course, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony are the foundation of the team. The combo will be making close to $40 million this season, and are expected to carry the team to the elite level that is expected of a roster so full of talent.
Everyone around the NBA has their opinion about the prospects of this working. This includes Charles Oakley, who doesn’t seem terribly optimistic.
Charles Oakley was known as an outstanding rebounder, including his time on the Knicks. When asked about the current Knicks team, he had some skeptical comments, particularly regarding the teams two stars, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire.
