Amare is out indefinitely with a bulging disk! I don't think there's a great chance that he'll be able to be back for the playoffs.
Right when the Knicks were starting to figure everything out, this has to happen. Amare was starting to play great! He was averaging 18 points and 8 boards a game while shooting 57% in March. The whole Knicks squad was playing together, it was truly amazing to see. They were actually playing defense! And sharing the ball! Now they've lost their leader, its just disappointing!
New York has been incredibly entertaining to watch this season, they've given me another team to watch during the season. They have so much talent, and its just fun to watch them try to figure things out.
The Knicks will still most likely make the playoffs, but they will have a tough time competing with the top echelon teams in the East. Melo has to step it up; we'll have see if he can put this team on his back.
What do you guys think about the Knicks' chances this season now that Amare is out? Has anyone been watching them?
