Found October 10, 2013 on Turn On The Knicks:
As sad as this is to say, Amare Stoudemire’s days as a superstar in the NBA are behind him. With a pair of knees that would be lucky to make it through half of a regular NBA season, STAT has got to be considered almost an afterthought by Knicks fans now. He has the heart of a warrior and will never stop trying to be an impact player, but it’s clear that the Phoenix Suns were right in saying that he didn’t deserve a max deal back in 2010. The Knicks know as much now given the fact that they have three legitimate starting power forwards on the team in Andrea Bargnani, Kenyon Martin and Stoudemire. New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers – Game Three In the off-season we have already heard about a undisclosed knee procedure that Amare Stoudemire had back in the early summer, followed by head coach Mike Woodson saying STAT will not play more that 20-25 minutes per night and won’t play the second of back-to-back games. All that being said I still don’t expect Stoudemire to stay healthy all se...

Carmelo Anthony: Amar’e Stoudemire situation is 'sad'

The New York Knicks have struggled with how they have handled the often injured Amar’e Stoudemire. Despite what many pundits have said, the Knicks flagship artist Carmelo Anthony does not prefer to play with Stoudemire on the bench. Anthony told ESPN that he is of the mindset that its hard to watch the big man suffer. “As a friend, it’s hard for me to sit back and act like...

Pre-Season Begins Tonight: 10/9

Knicks vs Celtics: 7:30pm Tonight begins a new season for the New York Knicks. New York heads into their first preseason game with many question marks. Who will start, what kind of rotation will work, and more importantly how will the combo of Melo and Bargnani translate into the regular season?

Knicks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. Hits Game-Winner (Video)

After The New York Knicks have high hopes for first round pick out of Michigan Tim Hardaway Jr. After an impressive showing at the NBA Draft Combine, I imagine the Knicks envision Hardaway Jr. providing a nice burst off the bench.

Carmelo Anthony on Amar’e Stoudemire’s health problems: “Just sad”

  With Amar’e Stoudemire still clearly not at 100% strength, the frustration with the other New York Knicks superstar, Carmelo Anthony, is reaching an increasingly high level. As noted by Brett Pollakoff from Pro Basketball Talk at, one of the original major motivations for Anthony to pursue his trade from the Denver Nuggets to join the Knicks was their recent signing...

Preseason Game Recap – Knicks 103, Celtics 102

The New York Knicks conquered Rhode Island and got the preseason off to a nice start with a win over the young Boston Celtics, 103-102. Something called Chris Babb fueled a furious late Celtics comeback – I’m not sure when, but I feel like this happened recently – but rookie Tim Hardaway, Jr. made the game-winning jumper from the corner with just over eight seconds left. Preseason...

Knicks to start Prigioni over Shumpert again

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said at Thursday’s practice Iman Shumpert will again come off the bench in Toronto on Friday as he will go with the all-point-guard backcourt of Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni. Woodson is handling Shumpert somewhat mysteriously saying over the last week he wants him to battle for the starting shooting-guard slot with the injured J.R. Smith the Sixth...

Shumpert will battle J.R. Smith for Knicks starting shooting guard spot

J.R. Smith has a starting job that is his to win which is pretty remarkable since Smith — the reigning Sixth Man of the Year — is coming off knee surgery in July and hasn’t been cleared to practice. Where that leaves Iman Shumpert is unclear but if he plays like he did Wednesday he may finally be released from Mike Woodson’s doghouse. The Knicks opened the preseason with...

Andrea Bargnani will return to the AirCanada Centre when the Knicks play the Raptors Friday night for the first time since being traded and his former coach has some advice for him. Raptors head coach, Dwane Casey, thinks Bargnani should probably have some ear plugs on hand. “They can boo him all they want now,’’ Raptors coach Dwane Casey cracked. “He gave seven great years...

Hardaway finds spot in Knicks rotation

Tim Hardaway Jr.’s silky 16-point NBA debut in the preseason opener in Providence R.I. on Wednesday moved Knicks coach Mike Woodson to proclaim the rookie has a spot in his crowded rotation. That’s no easy accomplishment considering Woodson usually isn’t fond of rookies and admits he is trying to figure out how to make his six backcourt men happy. The Knicks have three point...
