Stoudemire Continues To Make Knicks History

Ever since signing as a free agent last summer, Knicks big man Amar’e Stoudemire has been a breath of fresh air in the Big Apple. He has helped revitalize a historic NBA franchise that has been on life support for many years, and making franchise history in the process of this rebirth.

Last night, Stoudemire earned another notch on his belt, in a season where he seems poised to be a viable MVP candidate. It was announced last night that Amar’e beat out Kevin Garnett to be the starting power forward in the upcoming NBA All-Star Game.

When you look at the numbers between Stoudemire and Garnett, it shouldn’t be a surprise that this happened. However, the significance of this moment is huge for a Knicks franchise trying to rebuild its winning image from the the 1990’s. Last night’s announcement made Amar’e only the 5th player in franchise history to be a starter in the All-Star Game since fan voting began in the 1974-75 season, and the first since Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing in 1992.

The New York Knicks are a team that’s had a sense of identity crisis for a decade, and it looks like Amar’e has finally provided a frontcourt presence the Knicks have been lacking since the aforementioned Patrick Ewing left the team in 2000. The more Amar’e continues to set new franchise records once held by the likes of Ewing and Oakley, the more believeable this Big Apple Resurrection seems to be.
