Kay from Queens asks...
Amar'e off the bench(Strategic Not a Demotion)= 2 strong units for NYK
Good Idea (explain)
Bad Idea (explain)

It would be good, he can come off the bench with pablo or jkidd. If he starts it will be good too. cant go wrong with both
They can play together, but Tyson is what makes it messy. Melo at 4 and STAT at the 5 works better than all 3 of them in the frontcourt. You can't move the DPOY to the bench, so it makes sense to try for a starting frontcourt of Novak, Melo and Chandler
Yes because him and Melo can't and won't play together. They have never had a full training camp, and even if they did, I still think they would battle.
lets stat score more while melo's on the bench and allows for more pick n role with jkidd, great idea if this happens

Stoudemire is our captain. Without him, we couldn't have gotten Carmelo to even consider NY. Not to mention, Amar'e was an MVP candidate the season he arrived. The whole point of the Melo trade was to pair him up with Amar'e. They need to mesh. Benching Stoudemire would be a setback.
He will get pissed and leave.
BAD CUZ MELO AND AMARE WILL NEVER MESH IF THEY PLAY DIFFREND UNITS AND OTHER STUFF I DONT FEEL LIKE WRITEING
Amar'e need to beast up. We have the best team in New York and he's making us look bad.
He's one of the best players in the league barring his recent injuries... bench is a demotion not a reason for him to perform... he should start and if he don't perform, then he get the boot!!!
We dont have consistent enough scoring in the starting lineup without Amare. OKC has 2 perimeter high volume scorers in their starting lineup, there is no reason we cant replicate that with forwards.
amare and melo CAN play together its not like its impossible!
the key for the knicks is melo and amare playin well together puttin amare on the bench doesnt help and jr leads the 2nd unit
Not good for amare's psychology
