NYT: Stoudemire as sixth man?
The title pretty much says it all. My case:
After failing a chemistry exam in a lethargic 98-90 loss to Cleveland, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire’s combined for an impressive 61-point, 22-rebound performance on Sunday – a 113-112 win over the Hawks – and provided a glimpse of what’s possible for the Knicks’ stars.
But can Anthony and Stoudemire do that consistently?
With the two stars thus far failing to mesh, there’s a growing sentiment that, with Anthony’s play at the four a promising development of late, Stoudemire – who had a quiet 10 points and seven rebounds against the Clippers Wednesday night – might be best suited to being the first Knick big off the bench.
Read the rest, and please don’t hurt me.
