Hey Fam,

I am relaxing before we play Milwaukee tonight.  Knicks fans are going to out in force tonight.  My phone is blowing up with ticket requests.  I already saw one guy with a #7 Knicks Jersey on and it is not even noon yet.  Wow.

Knicks fans better get ready to see the beginning of something special tonight.  Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups and Corey Brewer are going to help our team win games.  I came to the Knicks to win a NBA Championship for New York and we are now big steps closer to achieving that goal.  It may not happen this year but we are on the right course.  I am glad these guys are finally here after

lots of talk.  Game by game we are going to get better.

The one thing that might have gotten lost in all the news over the past couple days is that the guys who got traded out of NY are great players and people.  I expect amazing things from all of those guys.  They did well for the Knicks and put us in a good position for the second half of the season.  We were a family unit and they were great to have as teammates.

I just got back from NBA All-Star Weekend in LA yesterday morning.  I am 1-0 in my coaching career.  I coached the Rookies to victory in the Rookie/Soph game.  I saw lots of old friends and relaxed as much as possible.  I wish the East could have pulled out a win for our fans in the end but it didn’t happen.  We will beat them next year.

One last thing on the biz front…my youth Basketball Academy is June 13-16 at Baruch College in NYC.  It is for Boys and Girls ages 8-18.  You can sign up now on amarestoudemire.com.  Space is limited.

I am going to relax for a little longer before heading to the Garden. Big night tonight.  Stand up Knicks fans.
