Suffering through another injury wrecked season, Amare Stoudemire returned to game 3 of the Knicks playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.  There was hope that his size and possible post presence could help the Knicks against the Pacers big squad that was dominating the paint.  Unfortunately for the Knicks, Amare didn’t provide much and coach Mike Woodson chose to bench him for the second half of the remaining two games before the Knicks were eliminated.  This didn’t bode too well with Amare.  Read more after the jump.

When asked if next season he should come back as a starter alongside Carmelo Anthony, Stoudemire made his loudest statement.

“We didn’t give it a chance,’’ Stoudemire said after the Knicks’ season ended in heartbreak in a 106-99 loss to the Pacers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. “We need to understand exactly what my style of play is and what I bring to the table. It’s something I have to sit down with Coach Woody and express to him.’’

 The $100 million man played just 29 regular season games for the Knicks this year and didn’t start in any of them.
Asked about the injuries, Stoudemire said late last night, “It’s pretty much been the season for me. Without a doubt. There’s no doubt about it.’’
