LMFAO

The New York Knicks haven’t banished Amar’e Stoudemire to their NBA D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks, a move we knew was coming thanks to my main man John Schuhmann.

But the Knicks big man is going to the D-League to continue his rehab by reporting to the MSG Training Center in Greenburgh, N.Y. today as he continues to fight his way back from the left knee procedure he had on Oct. 31. He’s been cleared for practice and will work with D-League crew while the Knicks rest between games.

There are still plenty of issues Woodson and the Knicks have to work through where Stoudemire is concerned. Having Stoudemire get in two full practices is the best way to get a proper handle on where he stands going into the Holiday weekend.

The fact that Stoudemire is going willingly, however, is the surest sign that the 10-year veteran is eager to do whatever it takes to fit into what the Knicks are doing right now (last night’s beating at the hands of the Houston Rockets aside). He’s the most high profile player in league history record a D-League assignment.

That's sad, he used to be explosive and fun to watch. Well, at least no more Pau for Amar'e trade threads. ;)

It's just for rehab. You see it always in the MLB. Players get hurt, go to a minor league team to try to get to speed and get their grove back, and then they make their jump to pro.

I have never seen that before in the nba. Its kinda an insult even if it is for rehab.

How is it an insult?

You guys are pretty unfamiliar with the use of a minor league affiliate I'd imagine. It's a great idea. Too hurt to play on an NBA level, so much easier and faster to get into shape playing against competition and honing your body back into game shape. You don't come rushing back into an NBA level of play any more. They did it before with him and it hurt him more.

Smart move by the Knicks. Now the next smartest move would be to trade him when healthy.

Yeah, the NBA doesn't make enough use of the D-League, imo. If Amar'e needs to play there for a few games to rehab, then fine. It's not like he's staying permanently.

Well this is new. They changed the rules for sending players down to the D-League. Used to be able to only send down players that had at most 2 or 3 years experience (can't remember if it was 2 or 3). Now they can send anyone if they want to. I see some teams using it as rehab stints like MLB does

The only thing that's funny about this is how big of a deal some of you are making this out to be.

It's a rehab assignment. That's all.

it's just that it's not customary to send an allstar like Amare to the d-league.
