There are rumors flying here in NYC that Amare Stoudemire will be out for even longer than once expected. I cannot confirm these rumors and I have in fact debunked a few of them, but some of the sources have been reputable. Let us for a second assume these rumors are true and Stat is out until early December at the earliest.
Where do the Knicks go from here with Amare and his spot on this team? We must be honest here and I think I have the right solution. Let me lay it out for you and maybe you will all agree with me. These are the facts:
1)Amare is here to stay ladies and gent’s. He is not being traded, since his contract is massive and his knees are uninsured- we can put that to bed.
2) Amnesty was used on Chauncey Billups and helped get the Knicks Tyson Chandler, furthermore, even if you had the amnesty, you would never use it on Amare at this stage in his tenure as a Knick. That would be like quitting on a player that still has team value and skill.
3) Doing nothing and waiting for him to return is not a strategy and will most likely backfire, because his injuries have seemed to have become more frequent in the last year or so.
What are the answers to this mess that is now known as the “Stoudemire Situation”?
NY can wait on Stat like I said, but where will this help either party? It won’t, that is why NY and Amare must figure something else out. Stat needs rest or surgery and most likely cannot play 35 minutes a night anymore, His body can’t take the pounding, resulting in his knees and back to break down and anyone who say’s otherwise is kidding themselves.
Here is the solution:
