The Knicks are back. Those were Amar'e's first words at his first press conference as a Knick. He should've said, "Same ol' Knicks." Mike D'Antoni talked the Knicks front office into giving him an uninsured 5-year/$100 million deal. The signing didn't seem like a bust until Carmelo Anthony came into town taking away Stat's lightning. The two haven't meshed well, and Amar'e didn't help by injuring his back during a pre-game dunk before Game 2 last year against Boston and cutting his hand when he punched a fire extinguisher case after Game 2 against Miami. Stoudemire refuses or doesn't know how to box out and he has no desire to play defense, especially if he's in foul trouble. To be fair, Amar'e has had a rough year with the lockout, a coaching change, and the death of his older brother Hazell. After acquiring the two stars, the Knicks have won one playoff game in two years.
