Turn On The Knicks:
Every week at Turn On The Knicks our staff will debate an issue of the week surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, along with follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree.
What do you expect from Amare Stoudemire this season?
Joe Caporoso - At this point, it is hard to expect anything other than 45-55 games at 20 minutes per night and it even feels like that is being too optimistic. If Stoudemire can give the Knicks that, it will provide a needed punch off the bench. STAT can still score around the basket, despite his putrid defense and inconsistent rebounding. It would be nice to see him near 100% health when the playoffs roll around, even if that requires resting him down the final stretch of the season.
Chris Celletti - Predicting what Amare Stoudemire is going to do on a basketball court at this point in his career is nearly impossible. Who knows if he even gets on the court to begin with? It’s more li...
BEST OF MAXIM
The New York Knicks have made measured improvements to their 54 win roster last season. However, with the transactions around the Eastern Conference most are projecting them as no better than the fifth best team in the East. What five x-factors could push them to exceed expectations?

Additionally, World Peace will be an asset to Mike Woodson on a matchup basis. Being able to play quality, physical defense on some of the league’s best perimeter scorers for a few minutes per night will be a huge relief for Shumpert and Melo, keeping them fresh during the season.
It’s important to remember that Metta also has a championship...
Reports from peachtreehoops.com have stated that Ivan Johnson, the rugged and rough PF, has signed with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese League.
Johnson was the perfect fit for the Knicks. His tough, rugged style was exactly what the Knicks needed on the court. Unfortunately, a theme that has gone on here for years, the Knicks are way over the cap and only have veteran’s...
Free-agent center Hamed Haddadi who worked out for the Knicks on Aug. 16 might not be done with the team yet. A source close to the player says it is "still possible" that Haddadi signs with New York.
The Knicks technically have only one roster spot remaining but C.J. Leslie and Jeremy Tyler both inked partially guaranteed contracts which means they are not locks to make...

It’s not often you get to meet a NBA champion, but I was fortunate enough to meet Dean Meminger during the summer of 99’ in a very unlikely place, an East Harlem pizza shop on 116th Street & 3rd Ave.
It was crazy, because the last place you expect to see a star of any stature is in your hood, especially a not-so-friendly hood like Spanish Harlem...

There are two people that the current Los Angeles Lakers regime will never stop talking about and neither of them is Kobe Bryant.
Those semi-unfortunate objects of the Lakers malcontent and affection are former center Dwight Howard and ex-coach Phil Jackson.
It seems that there is indeed a thin line between love and hate. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni continues to allow the public...
David Stern, concerned that the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets were being too mean to each other, called a meeting last season with the teams’ respective owners to ask them to tamp down the rivalry.
No, you did not accidentally stumble into the sports section of The Onion. This really happened, according to the New York Daily News. The commissioner of the NBA doesn’t want...

The Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are both vying to own New York, and the NBA supports such competition.
The league would just prefer the competition between the two franchises be a bit more friendlier. The New York Post is reporting that the NBA ordered Knicks owner James Dolan and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov to tone down their rivalry, and avoid any tension between the two franchises...
