Default How would you use Amar'e?

Usually, if you're the highest-paid player on an NBA team, your role is pretty well-defined.

Leader. Top option on offense. Go-to guy in the closing minutes of a tight game.

But that isn't the case with Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire.

Due to factors largely outside of his control (knee injuries, the Knicks' acquisition of Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler), Stoudemire's role with the team has been in flux for much of his tenure in New York.

This year is no different. Stoudemire will be on a minutes limit to protect his knees. He likely will play no more than 20 minutes a night. It's unclear, at this point, how the Knicks' coaching staff will use Stoudemire.
