4 Things Amar'e Stoudemire Can Learn from Former NY Knicks Great Patrick Ewing

Amar'e Stoudemire is one of the 15 best players in the NBA. I say that with full confidence and will argue with anyone who disagrees. 

But he can still get better. 

Stoudemire mostly shines on the offensive end of the floor, but his defense leaves something to be desired. And while his offensive repertoire is great, it can become more diversified and even more dangerous. 

If Stoudemire keeps doing what he's been doing and gets even better, he can become a legend in New York. 

Patrick Ewing is already a legend in New York, and is perhaps the greatest Knick to ever live. 

Ewing was a great offensive player in his day as well, but he was much better than Stoudemire on defense. Ewing had some different weapons on offense that Stoudemire doesn't too, even if he didn't have Amar'e's freakish athleticism. 

Stoudemire can learn a lot from Ewing—if many Knicks fans had their way, Ewing would be a Knicks assistant coach, and Stoudemire would be learning from him every day—and then maybe he can capture the NBA Championship that eluded Ewing for his entire career.
