Amare Stoudemire out 2-3 Weeks

We won’t be seeing this for a while

OK we all knew he wasn’t going to play 82 games, but after missing 3 out of 4 preseason games Amare is now out for 2-3 weeks with a ruptured popliteal cyst behind his left knee.  Yes it’s the knee he had micro-fracture surgery on.  It’s not serious, but he won’t be ready for the beginning of the season.

So will Woodson do what everyone hopes and move Melo to the 4 until Amare comes back or will we see Kurt Thomas and Chris Copeland man the 4?  And how many more injuries before this officially becomes the worst contract in the NBA?

Carmelo’s Quote from Knicks Media Day

“I don’t want that (scoring) role anymore. I can do it. It is what it is, that’s what I do best. But in order for this team to be successful with the guys that we have on this team right now, we need a more well-rounded team. So if I have to sacrifice doing some things out there on the offensive end I’m willing to do it.” – Carmelo Anthony

What does this really mean?

A.  Exactly what he said and we’ll see Melo 2.0 playing team ball.
B.  What he thinks we want to hear but in reality we’ll get Iso-Melo again.
C.  Anthony is now not going to try on both ends of the court.
D.  Other

Knicks vs The Heatles 4/15/12 – Game Thread

We’re playing the team everyone loves to hate.  We got stomped last time we played, will we get our revenge today?  Will Just Ridiculous Smith shoot well?  Who will win the LeBron Carmelo matchup?  Will Chris Bosh cry at some point in the game?

We’ll be leaving our comments here throughout the game, feel free to post your thoughts as well.

Notes from Last Night’s Match-up of the Bulls vs. Developmental League Knicks

Was this guy really supposed to be our savior at point guard???

  • Do you remember how everyone was worried that when Baron came back he would insist on taking over the starting role from Jeremy Lin. Well Lin is out for the year and Baron still insists on playing back up point guard even if we don’t have a goddam starting point guard.
  • How do the Knicks choose which quarter not to play each night? Did they pick the 2nd quarter out of a hat before the game?
  • Why can’t this team be good at both offense and defense. Last year they rocked on offense but couldn’t play a lick of defense. Now since Woodson took over they have the best defense in the league and a pathetic offense. Do the Knicks need to bring D’Antoni back as Woodson’s offensive coordinator? Continue reading
