Knicks won't match statistical projection

ESPN's recent Summer Forecast of the Eastern Conference calculated New York improving from last season's 32 wins to 40. Bradford Doolittle sees another step forward for the Knicks under Jeff Hornacek but not that large. East's most underrated/overrated teams (Insider)

Carmelo Anthony summed up Amar'e Stoudemire's impact in New York with this quote from the night that the Knicks and Stoudemire agreed to a buyout: "One of the main reasons I'm a New York Knick today was because of him.... When he came [to New York] he brought back some excitement to the game of basketball here in New York. There was hope when he came back. People started believing in the New York Knicks again. He was the main reason for that belief and for that hope."

Amar'e Stoudemire's time with the Knicks was marred by injury, but he deserves credit for signing with the club at a time when most others wouldn't consider New York. Carmelo Anthony has said he wouldn't have been in New York without Stoudemire.

Here's Amar'e Stoudemire talking about his time with the Knicks: "I came to New York in 2010 to help revitalize this franchise and we did just that. Carmelo [Anthony], Phil and Steve have continued this quest, and with this year's acquisitions, the team looks playoff-bound once again. Although my career has taken me to other places around the country, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick."

Amare Stoudemire has signed a contract with the Knicks and subsequently announced his retirement, the team announced.
