Carmello Anthony and Amare Stoudemire 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”

New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony: A Man On an Island or a Team?

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...

Carmelo Anthony Says **** You

….twice.   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?

Jason Kidd Might Still Be Capable of Helping Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire Coexist With Knicks

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...

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony wants team to have a gold-medal mindset

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.
