    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire didn’t come to New York so his wife could have a reality television show, he came there to win. He came to transform the Knicks from a decade of despair back into a team you had to respect. He came before there were other stars there. And he knows the Knicks were basically…
