Not sure what paper Amar’e was reading, but the Knicks were never the best team in the NBA or paper or by any other standard.
But, they should have been better considering they play in the weaker Eastern Conference. I get what he was saying, but it didn’t come out of his mouth right.
Amar'e Stoudemire said expectations for the #Knicks were low coming into the season: "On paper, we might be the best team in the league."

Amar’e and everyone else knows games aren’t played on paper, so regardless of how good you are, you are what you record says you are.
So, that means the Knicks were just terrible this year plain and simple.
