The New York Knicks acquired Carmelo Anthony as part of a 12-player blockbuster trade yesterday. While it will bring excitement to Madison Square Gardner, the trade still leaves the Knicks as less than a title contender.
In one of the best basketball games in a long time at The Garden, Stoudemire and the Knicks show they can play with the big boys.
Mike D’Antoni’s teams have never been known for their play on the defensive end of the court. They have however been known to be high scoring squads. This years New York Knicks teams is just that, a high scoring group.
The minute Amare Stoudemire signed his big contract to play in New York you knew the Knicks season would go as far as Stoudemire would take them. However, that won’t be very far if some other players do not step up their game.
