Just a few minutes before the New York Knicks decided to officially inform everyone they were going to stink up Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, Amare Stoudemire scared the life out of a packed house. Facedown, devoid of a step — let alone a spring in it — he stayed on the floor for a minute more than anyone would’ve preferred, courtesy of a twisted ankle. It was a scene that made everyone in the Garden gasp and nearly stopped the hearts of New York fans everywhere.

In one twisted, contorted moment, rife with the kind of drama that this town has no interest in whatsoever, the Knicks’ resident $100 million franchise player cemented the harsh reality that for now, one man — Amare — is responsible for this franchise’s future.

Which is why the Knicks must go get Carmelo Anthony as soon as possible.
