The Knicks are 8-1 and are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, but there are still questions about this team. The main question being what will they do when Amar’e Stoudemire is back and ready to play? Stoudemire is owed nearly $100 million over the next three years, but with the Knicks recent success, some around the league are questioning what his role will be once he does become healthy.  When asked by the New York Post, Woodson had this to say: “I’m going to address that when we get to that point. Right now I’m just taking it a day at a time and work the guys we have in uniform.’’ Woodson does firmly believe the Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire pairing can work. I wouldn’t necessarily call that a ringing endorsement of Stoudemire in the starting lineup. The duo hasn’t had much success while on the court together, but Woodson still believes he can make everything work once Stoudemire gets healthy. Woodson went on to say: “Is it an overall losing record with me as a head coach? I can’t think about what happened before I took over. As a coach, I feel good about both of them playing on the floor at the same time. That’s not going to change.’’ Stoudemire is due back from his knee injury any time between late December and early January, depending on how well his recovery goes. There is a lot of time between now and then, but if the Knicks continue their winning ways, it will be hard to justify throwing him into the starting lineup and risk ruining chemistry. Anthony has thrived playing the power forward position and the Knicks have the best record in the league. This will be something to keep a close eye on in the coming weeks.
