One Down, One To Go... Welcome to NYC Amar'e

The NY Knicks have FINALLY started moving in the right direction after agreeing in principle to a 5 year/ 100 million dollar contract with superstar forward Amar'e Stoudemire. Contracts can not officially be signed till Thursday, but the team and the former Sun have promised to make the deal happen. The Knicks have tons of issues to address on the court, and Amar'e definitely is a step in the right direction. He is an explosive post player that can run the floor and most importantly he knows coach Mike D'Antoni's system. And when he goes up... well, jus ask Tim Duncan to my left what happens. He can fly, and he makes posters out of people on the regular. Should be fun to be on the other end of one of those highlights for a change.

On a side note, the Knicks are trying to show Lebron James they are serious about building a contender. By locking up the 27 year old power forward for five years, they are showing Lebron he will have pieces in place when he gets here to make a run for the title. Lebron is taking a few more days to make his decision, but is expected to have decided on which team he will suit up for next year. Lets hope this is something we can look forward to on 34th st. for the better part of the next decade:
