Amar’e Stourdemire: According to reports from Ian Begley, Mike Woodson has told the media that Amar’e will not play Sunday night vs. the T-Wolves. No news on any injuries for Amar’e, I think they are just being cautious and have plans for him to rest as much as possible so he can be effective down the stretch and into the playoffs, remember it’s a long season.
However, I am not sure what Amar’e has left in his knees. He was a liability on the court defensively when he was healthy, and in Chicago I thought he disrupted the offense as well as the defense. This is just my opinion, but if I were the coach of this team I probably would not play Amar’e much. It is sad to say because I love him as a player, but he is not what he use to be, and now when he is in the game the ball does not move with fluidity. I watched Chicago go at him 4 straight times, converting each one of them.
Ricky Davis: Ricky Davis is a blast from the past. The fact that he is still playing basketball really dates me as a fan because I remember when he was drafted. Ricky was always known as a selfish player, and now that he is still looking to play in the NBA did the Knicks just give him a chance to land back on a NBA roster, and could it be in New York?
Fifteen-plus years after he was a first-round NBA draft pick, Ricky Davis was selected in the sixth round of the D-League draft Friday by the Erie BayHawks, the Knicks’ affiliate. Back in September, Davis was reportedly one of 10 players invited to a Knicks minicamp.
Davis was the 93rd overall player selected in the D-League draft, which lasted eight rounds.
I think this is probably not going to happen, but as a SF and slasher to the basket, Ricky can be very effective. Do not count on it though. He would have to wow the staff down in the D-League for him to make it the Knicks.
