Amare Stoudemire David Lee Mike D'Antoni

Some Knicks fans may be a little frustrated with Amar’e Stoudemire’s injury issues, and New York Daily News Knicks’ beat writer Frank Isola sprayed a little fuel on their fire with this tweet during Golden State’s 92-63 blowout win over New York last night (via RealGM.com):

It’s likely that D’Antoni didn’t get his way in 2010 because the Knicks’ other decision makers believed that Amar’e Stoudemire would be more attractive to LeBron James, whose reps had reportedly told the Knicks that James may prefer playing with Stoudemire over Chris Bosh.

Still, Isola’s revelation offers yet another piece of evidence that D’Antoni was never really calling the shots during his time in the Big Apple.
