DAMN! I seen it coming
The Knicks are getting to predictable
has nothing to do with the knicks, why you arent a nets fan by now is beyond me
its a pulled back muscle, who can predict or prognosticate on an injury that has nothing to do with a players history of injuries, eye-knees, healthy all year, one game, one dunk, pulled back muscle
and now you get on the knicks for it
so then its the lakers fault that bynum is hurt all the time
or its the rockets fault yao had to retire early
or maybe we should blame the magic for grant hills woes
So what....Im not happy with Stat injury lasting 5 months.
u already showed this board u know little about B.Ball? It would
be a suprise if u played B.Ball further than your drive way hoop?
u are clueless of what a $20M per player does to a roster?
yet two $20M per players?
or are u just a dum-dum to this "CAP" lockout between owners vs players?
There will be a 2011-12 NBA season with an unprepared Knicks team.....
If Stat & Melo can not find away to coexist consistantly.....an INJURY will occur.
u cant teach, learn, or play "team-defense" on the fly from only a week of Training-Camp.
you are the most laughed at poster on this forum kiya, literally most laughed at.
my argument was that you blamed the knicks for his injury, saying you are not surprised that the knicks would what sign a player who injures his back, which was no part of his injury history, now you are speaking about team-defense ? and 20 million dollar players killing a roster ? mean while you dont win in this league with out a carmelo anthony, or an amare.
and then take personal shots at me , mean while I played basketball and coached basketball for 25 out of the 30 years I have been on this earth ranging from top lupus team select on long island, to a college basketball poing guard; how far did you go with basketball ?
ill even arrange a meeting at any court in NYC and break both of your ankles if you want to make a run at me in real life.
I have been a solid OP threat originator and advocate for the knicks and this website since day one,
you have been called mentally challenged, foolish, a ranter, and a horrible poster since I began reading your tired babble.
please dont call shots, that you have no clue about; it makes you look like a hack.
btw thanks for helping me wake up, debating is worth more than a cup of coffee with a shot of jack daniels.
what does suprise mean ?
and how does stat and melo not finding a way to co-exist on a regular basis cause an injury, that makes no sense dude ?
so if a team has poor chemistry it results in a muscle pull in a play off game on a ridiculous dunk ?
lol, kiya the stand up comedian.
oh and kiya ...one more thing to shove in your mouth.. no homo
for being such a negative moron
from the horses mouth himself. This is what a 20 million dollar player does for you. He leads.
Is this a SUPRISE to you DUM DUM.
Amar’e Stoudemire said he’d be ready to roll if training camp began today and he feels that the first day of camp is not as far as off people think.
In an appearance at Harlem’s Polo Grounds Community Center as part of the Department of Youth program, the Knicks forward said he thinks the lockout will end “sooner than later.’’
He has arranged a mid-October informal training camp for his mates in Bradenton, Fla., but isn’t definitely sure they’ll need it. Training camps are scheduled for Oct. 2 and the doom and gloom scenario is there will be no season or a much-abbreviated one.
“I’m hearing good things about the lockout, that we’d be starting sooner than later,’’ Stoudemire said. “So that (Florida camp) would be offset. I’m not sure the change (in negotiating stance) but I do feel better about the fact we may star sooner than later. That’s a positive for us.’’
Stoudemire has been in constant communication with Knicks guard Roger Mason, who’s on the negotiating committee and indicated he had given him good reports in the last week.
Stoudemire, who pulled a back muscle during the Celtics series and was a non-factor after the injury, said he “feels great’’ and would “definitely’’ be ready for action. He had been resting and rehabbing much of the summer because of the back’s slow healing. He’s ready to step up his workouts Monday and is good enough to play now.
“I feel great,’’ Stoudemire said. “Been resting all summer. That’s been my main priority and I feel great.’’
Asked if he was nervous earlier in the summer about his back, Stoudemire said, “It was definitely a time it was sore and I didn’t know how long it would take to recover from that type of injury.’’
The NBA and Players Association are meeting again Wednesday and Thursday. If the lockout is ongoing in mid-October, Stoudemire expects the entire Knicks team to show up to the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. for an informal training camp.
Stoudemire said last week’s addition of top assistant Mike Woodson to run the defense was a good step.
“I think it’s great,’’ Stoudemire said. “We talked about improving defensively. The addition of Mike will be positive for us. But it’s up to us as players to implement it
Isola, enough said.
Its a pulled muscle! what Gallo had was 10 x worst and he has not missed a game because of his back since his rookie season
This report says he's 90% and thats a month from training camp (if it even starts on time).
