CJ Sports NASCAR Talk:
With the injury to Stoudemire, I threw a few ideas out on twitter about players that the Knicks should look at to help cover potential long term issues with Stoudemire’s body. I know the Knicks have Wallace in the wings but there is no timetable for him hitting the court, Copeland after having a rough first game vs. the Wizards has done absolutely nothing wrong and is proving to be a handful on the offensive end of the floor.
Copeland has come off the bench and has had his success vs. 2nd and 3rd unit players during this pre-season, but that is all we need during the season. He needs to get a bit more aggressive on the defensive end more, in regards to his rebounding, but apart from that I don’t see many things I don’t like.
The 2 games Copeland has stood out in the most have come against our biggest rival in the Atlantic the Boston Celtics. If you look at Copeland’s statistics in the 2 games versus the Celtics he has had played 55 minutes scored 55 points. He is shooting 17 f...

The New York Knicks need Stoudemire to be healthy for them to be a serious contender this year, but where is the best place for him in the lineup? Not to only get the best out of him as a player, but also to help the Knicks other key pieces.
I love statistics and numbers don’t lie, they don’t capture everything but they definitely paint a picture based on facts. I was...
Preseason game 5… Melo’s return to Cuse
3 Thoughts immediately after watching this game:
1. I was disappointed with the Knicks in the first half of this game tonight. They started off with a good open to the game, but after that the Knicks offense was stagnate. Guys were taking bad shots and poor ball movement mixed with absent transition defense lead to what...
As the 1st quarter of the Knicks/Celtics pre-season game wound down Saturday, Mike Breen said, “It sounds simple: Ball Movement. But, it is really is the key to success on the offensive end”. Mike could not have been more right. The teams you see win rings are the ones that move the ball. Elite teams like Boston, Miami, and Chicago have unselfish players. Since the Melo trade...
Amar’e Stoudemire, New York Knicks Center-Forward, may actually be fortunate to have suffered a ruptured popliteal cyst this week, though it will keep him out of action for at least two to three weeks. What is more worrisome than this new wrinkle is whether any of the knee diagnoses Stoudemire has dealt with in the past are more of an issue than the Knicks are aware of or are letting...
Amare just can’t seem to stay healthy.
Knicks vs 76ers Pre Game:
The Knicks are once again shorthanded. Yes, we get to see the debut of Ronnie Brewer at the shooting guard position and yes, this will be Carmelo Anthony’s return to the Carrier Dome on the campus of Syracuse University.
I, for one, do not want the major excuse for this season to become the fact that Carmelo and Amar’e have not had a full training...
Rasheed Wallace. Yep, I dared team Ballin Like Smush to do it and he is now the proud owner of ‘Sheed for $1 (until waivers on Thursday kicks in at least). This, in a way, shows the beauty of an auction. You can start nominating the top guys like LeBron James or try to squeeze [...]
