Amar’e Says Knicks Didn’t Buy Into Mike Woodson’s System

Amar'e Stoudemire frustrated with lack of minutes.

Sounds to me, that Amar’e wasn’t just throwing his teammates under the bus, but he is also taking credit for their late season surge as well.

“I mean, again, certain strategies were placed upon us with Coach Woodson. There were times when we didn’t quite buy into it and as a result of that, we lost games.”

“We lost a lot of vets,” Stoudemire said. “And those vets were definitely key leaders for us. And it was tough for me to be the leader that I know I am because I was still on limited minutes and I wasn’t playing much so it was tough for me to lead by example.

“Once I got into the starting lineup, then my leadership qualities [resurfaced],” he added. “So, next year, we should be focused a little bit more and it’ll be a much better year.”

Mike Woodson won’t be back next year and if the Knicks had their choice neither would Amar’e but they will be stuck with him and his $20+ million salary at least for one more season.
