Sports, Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut when the Knicks host the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. It will be Stoudemire’s first return to the floor since undergoing arthroscopic surgery last summer and he will reportedly come off the bench versus Portland for Mike Woodson according to the report.

Smith in the forward’s absence, the Knicks got off to a hot start and had Madison Square Garden buzzing on a nightly...

POTD 1/1/13: Amare Stoudemire on Victor Claver

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...
