Amar’e Wants to Talk with Coach Woodson
After being benched for the second half for the second straight playoff game, Amar’e Stoudemire is confused with his role with the Knicks going forward.
His injury-wracked season never included a single start and ended with coach Mike Woodson not trusting the $100 million man after the first two quarters.
When asked if next season he should come back as a starter alongside Carmelo Anthony, Stoudemire made his loudest statement.
“We didn’t give it a chance,’’ Stoudemire said after the Knicks’ season ended in heartbreak in a 106-99 loss to the Pacers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. “We need to understand exactly what my style of play is and what I bring to the table. It’s something I have to sit down with Coach Woody and express to him.’’
