Breaking news out of New York. The Knicks and free agent center, Amar’e Stoudemire are close to a five-year contract worth upwards of $100 million dollars. If Stoudemire agrees to this contract, the Knicks will immediately become serious contenders for LeBron James.

Stoudemire and current Knick coach, Mike D’Antoni have a good past together. Under D’Antoni, Stoudemire emerged as one of the best big men in the game.

Last season for Phoenix, Stoudemire averaged 23.1 PPG, 8.9 RPG. Stoudemire would instantly help a struggling Knick franchise. Inking Stoudemire would start a new era in the Garden. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
