    The key thing here to remember is that Woody isn't really using his own offensive sets, he's using D'Antoni's, he's just found a way to integrate Carmelo into them. If he can find a way to make Carmelo effective in an offense centered around the pick and roll, then he can find a way to make Amar'e effective in that offense too, especially cause there are few PFs in the league better in the pick and roll than Amar'e Stoudemire.
    Amare is a ridiculously dominant PnR big man and Melo can be waiting on the perimeter for the jumper as a back up, was against lesser opposition but anyone see how that worked out in the olympics

    Default Amare

    I think there is less of a problem with Melo and Amare' together than with Chandler and Amare' together. Amare' is going tohave to pick up his defense, particularly when Chanlder is not on the floor. But I agree with FatElvis's thought that Amare' and Wallace, who is a three point threat, could be a great tandem.

    Once we are fully healthy, we will have a lot of effective combinations.

    Amare should play most of his minutes with Camby and Sheed when and if they come back, much better fits imo.

    Default Amare Returns TONIGHT!!!

    @WojYahooNBA
    New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut on Tuesday against Portland, league source tells Y! Sports.



    After undergoing preseason knee surgery, New York Knicks All-Star forward Amar'e Stoudemirewill make his season debut on Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

    Amar'e Stoudemire takes a practice shot before the Knicks' home game vs. the Lakers on Dec. 13. (AP).
    >Whether or not Carmelo Anthony returns from his hyper-extended knee on Tuesday, the plan remains for Stoudemire to come off the Knicks' bench. Anthony told reporters that he will test his knee in pre-game on Tuesday and then make a determination on returning to the lineup.

    Stoudemire, 30, has been one of the NBA's elite power forwards and had come into training camp believing he had worked himself into the best shape of his professional career. Nevertheless, Stoudemire suffered a knee injury in October, underwent surgery on Oct. 21 and has been rehabbing the injury most recently in practices with the Knicks' D-League franchise in Erie and finally with the Knicks.

    "We need him," Anthony told Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears on Friday. "I know we are playing well, but the more bodies, the better, especially at this point where guys are doing well. …We are ready for him."

    The Knicks are 21-9, leaders in the Atlantic Division and a half-game behind the Miami Heat for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

    Happy New Year Everyone
    Make this da year to remember being a Winner ....

    1/1 I'm looking foward to the return of Amare without Melo & Felton in the rotation ..
    I already picture the first game with Jason Kidd performance explaining to Amare vs Portland, that Kidd's body is to old to play the SSOL running game for over 20 minutes per game.
    PG-Pablo pick n roll with Copeland will be practice alot with Amare vs Portland.

    1/3 The Knicks vs Spurs Headcoach Pop ..
    the NBA top best offense/defense GELLIN headcoach the last 6 seasons are "Pop" the Spurs will bring back old-memories to Amare.

    1/5 The Knicks vs Magic should be the game we see alot of the low-post moves Olyjuwon taught to Amare in the offseason ..
    PG-Pablo posting-up Amare quickness down-low and Tyson strength down-low ..
    with JR, Novak, and Kidd peremeter shooting killing Orlando in the 3rd quarter.

    I have no-faith in the two $100M animosity-boys and Tyson in the same lineup ..
    unless Big-Daddy Jason Kidd is in the lineup too.
    Amare & Melo remind me of two Baby-daddies who keep bumbing heads everyweek when they visit their Baby-Mama house .. the stare-down are enough to KILL.

    Been a supporter of Amare's all off season and not gonna stop now.

    Stat may not do anything special tonight but by next month Stat will return to All Star form

    Tonight is the first step

    Can't lie I am worried about how he and Melo will co-exist at first and what the implications will be to our record...but by seasons end I know they will be the tandem we all envisioned

    Stat will open the floor for Melo and our shooters and doubling off of Amare is way different than doubling off Brewer...Melo's scoring will go down...his assist and shooting numbers will go up

    Felton's shot selection will improve and shooting pct will go up when he is no longer the 2nd but 3rd or 4th (depending on lineup) option.

    I am a man of little faith when it comes to Amar'e. This, to me, is just an excuse. Pass off the blame and you pass off the heat.

    Yeah, really. Admit you didn't try, and move forward. Too many times he didn't try, and he could have asked for helped outside of the coaches he had. Olajuwon wasn't his coach, but he asked him for help.

    Come on, Amar'e. If you've turned it around, great, just don't make excuses.

    Precisely. Pride, you would think, should have him aiming for better results as a defensive player. Instead he makes excuses that take the focus off his game, and passes the onus on to others for his shortcomings.

    It's classic hoop-millionaire immaturity.

    I am sick to death of this guy's media pleasing rhetoric.

    Stat is a 20-10 bigman that need to work on his inside/outside passin skillz more than anything else .. turnovers & selfishness should be band from the 2012-13 Knicks.

    The Knicks BIG-3 biggest problem has been ..
    Tyson has no passin-skills
    Stat has no passin-skills
    and Melo has no passin-skills
    funny how all 3 can catch an alley-oop pass but cant throw one lol

    Our BIG-3 frontcourt would be dynamic if they could pass the ball half as good as the Chicago Bulls front-court bigmen

    I recall a time when Zach Randolph & Boozer had no passin-skills, but not anymore .. their defensive-skillz are still the same.
