One down, two to go.
The first block of a potential Knicks’ Dream Team was placed yesterday as All-Star power forward Amar’e Stoudemire announced he had agreed to terms with the Knicks. Stoudemire will get a five-year, $99.7 million deal that likely won’t be insurable because of past knee surgery.
“Oh yeah, the Knicks are back,” Stoudemire crowed.
The only way they’re really back as far as being a championship-level team is if LeBron James follows suit this week and Carmelo Anthony signs on as a 2011 free agent. Then we are talking about a three-headed Knicks monster that could create a dynasty only the Yankees could appreciate.
