Amar'e Stoudemire may not be the player he once was, but that doesn't mean he can't be productive coming off the bench for the New York Knicks in 2013-14.
Going in to training camp, STAT has had plenty of time to rest and hopefully, after having a debridement performed on both knees, he'll be able to stay healthy for longer next season.
Although he may not be an All-Star any more, Stoudemire proved he can still be an efficient scorer in the minutes he plays, averaging 14.2 points on 58 percent shooting coming off the bench.
Now that the team is taking more precautions to keep him healthy, we should see him for closer to a full season, with an eye on having him ready for a major role in the playoffs.
Stoudemire is still capable of playing physically inside and, combined with his mid-range game and post moves, he can still be an effective scorer in limited minutes for the Knicks.
