New York Knicks to Limit Amar’e Stoudemire’s Minutes Next Season


Head coach Mike Woodson was asked to limit Amar’e Stoudemire’s minutes last season, which created some friction with the star forward in the Playoffs. Woodson says that he’ll be under similar orders in 2013-’14 from his New York Knicks bosses. Per the NY Post: “The Knicks had talked about a 20-minute cap limit on the forward, and they also discussed limiting his playing in back-to-back games. ‘Right now, as it stands, he’s going to be on some restrictions,’ Woodson said. ‘What those restrictions will be, I don’t know yet.’ Woodson said the Knicks are taking a new approach to Stoudemire this offseason, having him rest all summer instead of working out. ‘The main thing with Amar’e, he needed rest,’ Woodson said. ‘Last summer, he put in a lot of time. He worked his [butt] off last summer.’”

    First round elimination anyway,,,, team needs to be destroyed anyway.

    Amar’e is simply a mere shell of his former shell-like existence.

    Had the same restriction last year and it didn’t help him stay healthy. He just cast stay healthy.

    this is such fun news. this means that Smith/Melo/Bargnani will share the court with one another for a considerable amount of time.

    .

    Along with Raymond “i shot 882 shots, and only scored 948 points” Felton.

    .
    The Knicks are going to be so much fun this year.

    What a dud he turned out to be in NY. I feel bad for dude he was a legit MVP candidate before Melo got there and then he got hurt and it just went downhill from there.

    Why can’t big market teams be more like the Chicago Bulls. Rely on drafting pieces to build around instead of signing “superstars” to absurd contracts just to satisfy the fans. We don’t want mediocracy, we want championships, and we’re willing to go thru a few painful years of rebuilding to get there. At this point the NYK can’t even blow this thing up and take that approach bc they threw all of their draft picks away for the next 300 years!

    Jim Dolan made the mistake. That team with Amar’e, a younger, more in shape Felton, Galinari, Wilson Chandler and those guys were doing very well before that trade.

  • OfftheWall87

    Since the Miami guys got together, most teams (NY included) tried to copy them. They were doing fine before Dolan decided to trade for Melo. Ruined the chemistry that that team had and Amar’e hasn’t been the same since. Also have to remember that not every team gets lucky and drafts number 1. And not every number 1 pick turns into what D-Rose turned into after just 3 seasons. And the Bulls weren’t even that bad before drafting Rose. They had a solid roster of guys before they got him. He took them to the next level as he improved.

    that would not have stopped his knee from falling apart. D’Antoni was running him into the ground. And he already was falling apart.

  • Caboose

    Remember that Iverson-Webber team? This’ll be that on steroids. I can’t wait to see a team of Felton, JR, Melo, Bargs, and Stoudemire on the floor together. Dudes are so selfish, I’d be curious to see who inbounds the freaking ball.

  • OfftheWall87

    Even with that, I still say it was a mistake going after Anthony.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    HEY, C-Webb wasn’t selfish. He just wasn’t as good as his brain thought he was.

    .

    Anyway, i expect whoever throws in the ball to try and ricochet it off of a teammate in order to take it up and take a shot for himself.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i think they were right on going for a superstar. i just think that superstar was a state over, in Salt Lake City. + they wouldn’t have had to give up nearly as much.

  • Caboose

    Not so much selfish, more that he wasn’t a great off the ball player. That’s why those Kings teams worked: Bibby, Christie, Peja, and Vlade/Miller all knew how to play off the ball. Iverson? Not so much.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    yeah and C-Webb couldn’t run in Philadelphia. His knees were non existent at that point. lol

  • Caboose

    Lol which explains why all Sacto got back from that deal was Kenny Thomas, Corliss Williamson, and Brian Skinner. Good lord that deal was awful.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    and it was only awful because they gave Kenny Thomas something like 8 million a year for 4 years. other than that it was a masterful salary dump, cuz C-Webb had just signed that totally wasteful extension the season before his knee fell off.

  • RLW

    Knicks are a disaster man.

  • danpowers

    id like to see a different salary system by all players receiving the same basic salary and then being paid after each season they played based on their performance.

    i know that wont happen, but just imagine an nba without contracts of severely injured or just generally underperforming guys like frank bricksowski, rashard lewis, stat, c-webb, eddy curry, allan houston, andrew bynum, ben gordon, hedo turkoglu, etc… jamming team’s payrolls or just taking too much money away from other players who contribute just as much or even more.

    that would also keep executives and owners like those in the knicks organization from being themselves… -.-

    Were you sober when you typed this?

    Iverson doesn`t know how to play off the ball? Really? Is that not what He did when Snow was running point from 1998-2004. I seem to remember Iverson running off of multiple screens before catching-and-shooting or catching-and-driving. Philly made that 2001 finals run with Iverson playing off the ball almost exclusively. I mean Iverson has played on and off the ball his entire career as a PG or SG.

    So are you talking about? I don`t understand the comparison between Iverson-Webber and this knicks squad.

  • Ugh

    Thumbs up.
