NBA Tumblr Top 10 Power Forwards
The New York Knicks have recently become the league’s most talked about team, and it isn’t all revolving around the Carmelo Anthony saga.
Amar’e Stoudemire has found himself a home in the Big Apple, and he is averaging 26.4 points per game for the Knickerbockers this season, a number that is good for second in the league. He is shooting a spectacular 51 percent from the field, and 80 percent from the charity stripe.
He is also grabbing 8.3 rebounds in his first season since coming from Phoenix, a place where he was the co-franchise face with the legendary Steve Nash.
One thing that puts Stoudemire at No. 2 on this list is his presence while on the court. His intensity is matched by no one on this list, and his improved offensive post play is one reason for his spectacular play this season.
He has helped bring the fire back to the Knicks that hasn’t been seen in a decade. Fans around the league are excited for this postseason, and it is in part due to what Stoudemire and the boys have done in NYC.
How interesting is it going to be in the next few years to see Amar’e, ‘Melo, and Big Shot Billups team it up? Will they win any titles? Only time, and Stoudemire’s play, will tell.
Those crazy college kids…

My favorite happened to be #9: “It’s only 60 miles from Trenton.”
Amar’e has thrown himself into New York City, and he’s been totally accepted. Not all free agents have gotten the same welcome.
