Good job Amar'e. I'm proud of you.

GG. Knicks are legitimate contenders now.

Just adds to their versatility. They can play the traditional lineup with him starting, but either the offense changes if you take Kidd out of the starting spot, or the defense changes if you take out Brewer. Chandler and Amare battle for screening opportunities. Melo and Amare have to take more jumpers than they usually would.

If Woodson decides to bring Amare off the bench, they get the best 6th man in the league to what is already a strong bench, and they rely so much less on the 3pt shot. Which is what has been their downfall in 2 of their losses vs Memphis and Brooklyn.

And instead of shaking things up, they slide Amare right into their position of weakness right now. Which is consistency and athleticism at the 4/5 spot off the bench, and an offensive focus when Melo is off the court. Plus the ability to input a great offensive lineup without playing Melo at the 5 or forcing feeding Sheed.

Default Re: Ama're Stoudemire Accepts Sixth Man Role

the problem I see is that amar'e and carmelo both want to play the same role.

amar'e actually put up more points on better efficiency than carmelo when he played that role in 2010, but carmelo gets the edge because he draws in more defenders because he can effectively put the ball to the floor from inside and he can pass better

I just don't see how there's going to be enough time for both of them to get into their grooves

Getting excited about this is just settling for an easy answer. We wanted to have Amare and Melo together...but they're not. Why are we paying Stoudemire this money? So Carmelo can rebound much less than him and Amare do do what? Two PG's. One being a guy he's played great with and the other is freakin Jason Kidd.


Sorry, this is awful. Why didn't we just amnesty him instead of Billups then? Last year was the final say on Stoudemire? This is stupid.

It'd make the Sixth Man race an interesting one if he can still produce, especially when the Sixth Man role is now geared towards scoring wing players(G-SF).

Odom and Jamison are the only two 6th Man-winning PF/C in the past 10 years. At one time, it was McHale's and Walton's of the world who were winning the 6th Man award.
