It takes two to make a thing go right; it takes two to make it out of sight. These famous words by Rob Base
are fitting for Amare Stoudemire
and Carmelo Anthony
. Well, Ok not as famous as you think, but a classic line in a song from my generation.
Amare to Melo
and Melo to Amare are the keys to sustainable success in New York City
and the Knicks. This task would be difficult in any galaxy, however with the recent news that Amare had gone to school with “The Dream
”, our outlook has changed a bit. In the past, Amare only felt comfortable running pick and rolls and attempting jumpers. Could he execute other parts of his offense? I am sure he could have made a few plays here and there, but now with the commitment from Stat to work with Hakeem, the offense has to be broken down once again.
Picture this, Carmelo drops the ball in the low post
to Amare and we see motion and cutting from the guards and small forwards. Amare can drop the pass to the cutters with a quick move to the rack for a basket or a foul. On the other hand we could see the ball dropped into Stat on the block and backs down the opposing player and waits for the double team
to come. If it comes then he finds the open man or passes the ball out and the ball is swung around the perimeter until the open man is found and he takes the shot. These are just two options NY has to take advantage of other teams. Trust me we will see many offensive sets this year and these are basic plays.
Carmelo Anthony is a stone cold “assassin”
BEST OF MAXIM
The Knicks can sign players and trade players, but the team will sink or swim with the game of Carmelo Anthony at the helm. I’m not saying he has to do it all, I actually think he needs to do less. Having trust in his teammates is über important. Not many stars can have that trust.
Speaking of trust, Alan Iverson was one of those players that had a hard time trusting his teammates...
I think the Melo stans are dwindling day by day. His inability to simply get the job done down in New York has minimized his reputation to just a cat that can give you 20 points any given night but it stops there. And to win a chip in the NBA you need to bring more to the table. But he paid right?
Coming off of a sub-par season, Amar’e needs to figure out a way to shut the critics up. The critics say that STAT has lost his explosiveness, his quickness, and his overall game. Going into the off-season, Amar’e decided to add to his versatile arsenal and start training early. Mike Woodson suggested developing a post-game. Amar’e, a student of the game, agreed to develop...
At 39 years old, Jason Kidd probably is not looking to become the next great New York Knicks point guard. Eighteen years into his NBA career, Kidd would be content to merely help the Knicks' apparently incompatible stars find a way to play together. And that could make him the perfect conductor of an otherwise dysfunctional orchestra. The Knicks were a mess last season, as they...

Apologizing now for the late post, been busy, but now I’m back at it. I came across a photo of Knicks superstar forward Carmelo Anthony posted on his Facebook of himself and wife Lala headed to Barack Obama Classic dinner. Melo was as sharp as a nail in a sleek micro stripe three-piece suit he completed with a satin dress shirt and pocket square, I can’t forget the sunglasses...

Although its been about a week since Team USA took home the gold in men's hoops at the 2012 Summer Olympics, the below blooper reel was recently released.Check out such stars as Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Carmelo Anthony having some fun during team practices and flights: (Courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk)
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony told the New York Post that he wants the team to have the same mentality Team USA had during its gold-medal winning effort at the London Olympics.
“I’m excited to get this thing going,” Anthony said. “Especially coming off this run we just had with the USA team. To be able to put that team together and still be able to accomplish...
