Amar’e Returns

The time has finally arrived for New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire to return to the court, and he will do so tomorrow at Madison Square Garden against the Portland Trailblazers. The news was tweeted by Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

Having missed the first two months of the season, Stoudemire has sat on the sidelines and watched his injury-riddled team compose a 21-9 record, good for second place in the Eastern Conference. The Knicks have played some very good basketball throughout their first 30 games with Carmelo Anthony performing at an MVP level.

The question still remains in New York however…

Can Stoudemire and Anthony co-exist?

We’ll all find out tomorrow when the Blazers come to town. People shouldn’t expect too much from Amar’e in his first game back but with Rasheed Wallace, Ray Felton and Iman Shumpert all still sidelined by injuries, there will still be work there for Stoudemire to sink his teeth into.

How will this pan out in New York? We’ll see chapter one of this story tomorrow.
