The Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony experiment was destined to fail from day one.
Alas, the experiment is still failing.
That isn’t a knock on Carmelo Anthony or Amare Stoudemire. It’s a knock on the idiot who decided that putting those two players together with Mike D’Antoni would somehow work itself out. The New York Knicks are winning but their max contract problems haven’t gone away.
It shouldn’t be a revelation to anyone that the Knicks are winning games. They’re 20-8 on the season following their tough loss on Christmas day to the reenergized Lakers. That’s 20 wins without Amare Stoudemire and 8 losses without Amare Stoudemire.
