Default Re: And just like that, Stoudemire out 2-3 weeks

NY Daily News:

The Knicks are one of the few teams that can be without a player of Amar’e Stoudemire’s caliber and still throw a lineup on the court featuring one of the NBA’s top power forwards.

In fact, the case could be made that in today’s NBA, Carmelo Anthony is more effective at that position than Stoudemire, who is not expected to be available for the Nov. 1 season opener due to a knee injury.

“It’s kind of a nightmare for a lot of (power forwards) in this league because he’s capable of doing so much offensively,” Mike Woodson said on Monday. “He can come off screens, can run pick-and-rolls, isolation and post. There’s a variety of things he can do (against) bigger fours that have to guard him.”
