Watch out, NBA. The New York Knicks are coming for you. That includes the six-time All-Star beast, Amare Stoudemire.

With Anthony and Stoudemire firing on all cylinders...wow. 19-6 would just be the start.

This isn't a joke, either. Amare just finished top 10 in MVP voting in 2010-2011, less than a year and a half ago.

Amare is not gonna be back to his 25 point 8 rebound self at first, but get that he has come back from 2 microfractures already and been voted an allstar so it's not crazy to think that this guy can do it again. he isn't old, he is very athletic and has a freak of nature body that can repair itself beyond what most can. people forget how much this guy has gone through and gotten back to peak form. not saying its gonna happen, but not ruling it out

I despise STAT, but the fact is that offensively, in his worst year since his rookie year, he averaged 17.5 PPG on 48% shooting. Everyone on the Knicks had down years, largely due to injuries and the lack of a PG (which hurts STAT more than most). All thing considered STAT had a solid season offensively. There is no reason that everyone can talk about other players regaining their form, just needing time, and not STAT.


Not a doubt in my mind that STAT could still average 22 PPG on 50%+ shooting. Of course he'll still likely make me want to smash my face through a brick wall with his defense, but offensively, with 3 very competent PGs (one of them being J-Kidd) I'm sure he'll return to form offensively.

"It's very important because everybody has a role, and the thing is, you have to understand that," he said. "It doesn't mean you have to be a robot out there, but it means that you bring what you bring to this team every single night. Good teams have that; bad teams don't understand that. That's what separates good from bad in this league."

Thats a solid quote, if you're a Knick fan.

When Melo is out my Knicks often struggle to score in the half court.

It turns into Felton trying to do everything.

lol you know whats jokes, the Kings have more recently won a playoff series compared to the knicks. There regular season record is meaningless if they can't be healthy and win when it counts.

... and cue for someone to tell me that this year is different. yes yes I know and admit they look real good, but save the hype for when they show success in the post season.

Nope,but there arent that many truly great defenders in the leauge...hes had to adjust to having melo on the squad...truth is most of you non knick fans would be plenty happy to have a player of amares ability coming off your bench...cant wait till he and shumpert come back...knicks are a problem...enjoy haters

I think he'll be a 20 PER player... he'll probably play around 28mpg these days, and he'll ALWAYS have a good PG out there with him.

I have been a huge Amare hater because of the albatross contract, defense sucks and he doesn't box out consistently. but as a Knicks fan, I'm looking forward to seeing the return of Amare. He will hurt on defense but when Melo sits, it's obvious the Knicks need a legitimate scorer aside from JR (too streaky) off the bench. He will help more than anything.

Sounds like the geniuses that said 'Knicks can already score, why would they need Melo?'.

We don't need better defensive personnel, just a kick in the *** every now and then. We've shown we can dominate defensively and we are getting killed by guards more than anything - the Hardens, Lins, Kembas, Holidays of the world. Shump will help big time in that regard.

Woody finally had a day to practice, told his team the recent stretch of D was unacceptable, went thru film and the result was a beatdown of the Nets, our rotations were on point again and Tyson looking like DPOY again (the Knicks pregame showed a bunch of clips of him doing just that - lambasting his team on their D - before you say I am making things up or some smart *** remark like 'were you at their practice?).

You should know as a Heat fan, sometimes when your in the midst of a big winning stretch and continue that even when you take the foot off the gas on D a bit you can get complacent and winning becomes expected. It took an embarassing loss to the Rockets for us to put things back in perspective and turn it up a notch again defensively. We started coasting for a bit and relying on our offense too much.

Personally, I don't mind Amare talking like this because that's just who he is. You need him to be himself because if not he's probably won't play within himself. It's easy to press too much, especially in his case where he's practically in a spot where if he messes up chemistry, NY will turn on him hard.

But if he embraces the 6th man role, the whole city of NY will gain a whole new level of respect for him. Imagine, a guy getting max dollars coming off the bench to contribute for a winning cause....It'd be hard not to respect a guy like that.
