The New York Knicks struck quickly in free agency, picking up Amar'e Stoudemire to avoid getting completely shut out in an offseason the team and its fanbase had been anticipating for years.
Of course, the Knicks failed to land any of the "Big Three," as the SuperFriends all chose to play together in South Beach.
Yet New York seems to be optimistic about the future with its new star power forward. Stoudemire is now reunited with former head coach Mike D'Antoni, who helped make him the offensive powerhouse he is today.
Yet, like Joe Johnson with the Hawks and Rudy Gay with the Grizzlies, fans should be a bit wary of inflating expectations.
The Knicks just paid big money for a player who has never been the star of his own team, has battled back from several tough injuries, and who is generally one-dimensional.
That's a summary of why signing Stoudemire will ultimately be a mistake for New York.
Following is a full explanation of why the Knicks screwed up with their major signing of the offseason.
