New York Knicks and Amar'e Stoudemire: Five Ways To Improve the Offense

Amar'e Stoudemire is known for his ferocity on the offensive end, but his tenure in New York has been less than stellar thus far.

Stoudemire's field goal percentage is down to a career-low 41.5 percent for the year. He hasn't shot under 50 percent—not including his 3 game stint in 2005—since the 2003 season. For his career, his percentage comes in at 54.2 percent; an impressive number, showing just how efficient he has been over the course of his career.

What's even more troubling is his 5.4 turnovers per game. He is more than doubling his career turnover average, and this is very uncharacteristic for any big man.

However, it would be unfair to place all of the Knicks' offensive woes on Stoudemire's shoulders. The supporting cast around Amar'e has had their fair share of poor outings too.

As the $100 million man in New York, Amar'e is the first option on offense and he needs to start playing like it. If he wants to return to form, he needs to adapt his game in the post-Nash era.
