The New Amar’e Stoudemire

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second installment of a four part examination of what has gone wrong since the Knicks’ 18-5 start—a stretch in which they were beating teams by an average of over seven points a game—and whether or not the Knicks can return [in varying degrees] to their early-season form. You can read part one here and part two here.) Let’s be happy. Remember that time, a little over two years ago, when it looked like Stoudemire would lead the Knicks to their best season in a decade? Okay, now let’s be depressed. Think of  Stoudemire’s 2011-12 season. Think of a fire …continue reading

It was clearly a foul, but the arbiters declined to flag him for his transgressions. The following trip down the court, Martin found himself guarding DeMar DeRozan on a similar foray to the hoop and, as …continue reading

[New York Post] Martin & Co. nab 4th straight win (Sun, 24 Mar 2013 05:01:58 -0500) Tyson Chandler better hurry back before he loses his starting job to Kenyon Martin.

On Iman Shumpert’s Current Level of Production

(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second installment of a four part examination of what has gone wrong since the Knicks’ 18-5 start—a stretch in which they were beating teams by an average of over seven points a game—and whether or not the Knicks can return [in varying degrees] to their early-season form. You can find part one here.) Despite the universal love that the fan base has for our 2nd year combo guard, I come to bury Iman, not to praise him.
