GREENBURGH, N. Roquan Smith Hoodie .Y. -- Amare Stoudemire will go into next season with $45 million left on his contract and no guarantee of a starting job. He also could remain a reserve who plays restricted minutes. Searching for ways to improve next season, the New York Knicks could use a reliable second scorer and dependable low-post option. They have no way of knowing if Stoudemire can provide either because of his knees. "Hes a heck of a player and I think we all know that. The question is his health and how much he can play," general manager Glen Grunwald said Tuesday. "So weve got our medical staff and training staff working with him to design an off-season program that will get him to full health, and we hope hell be able to play significant minutes for us next year. How much that will be, we dont know at this time." Stoudemire was limited to just 29 games in the regular season and four brief appearances in the post-season because of a pair of knee surgeries. Following a 54-28 finish and their first playoff series victory since 2000, improvement wont be easy for the Knicks. Their options will be limited by salary cap rules, and its unclear if they even want to make many changes. Grunwald agreed with players that the best strategy might be giving this seasons roster more time together. "Our focus is to continue to build this core team," Grunwald said in a rare meeting with reporters. "I think some continuity, some familiarization, further growth as individual and as a team, I think thats what we have to do." That could mean re-signing sixth man J.R. Smith if he becomes a free agent, though Grunwald wouldnt comment on specific plans. He also said 40-year-old Jason Kidd, who has two years left on his deal, gave no indication during his exit meeting that he planned to retire after a dismal post-season. Grunwald said the Knicks wont be allowed to acquire players in sign-and-trade deals and have only the exception for taxpaying teams, starting at about $3.2 million next season. They wont get much top talent for that, but they would if Stoudemire could come back and play at anywhere near his former All-Star level. He has to show the Knicks he can be healthy before showing them he deserves to start again. "I havent made that decision. Ill have the summer to kind of evaluate where I go with that, but I think first things first, hes got to come back healthy," coach Mike Woodson said. "I mean, that is the major part of this. Our struggles in terms of where we wanted to go this season was the fact that we had the injury with STAT. STAT was ready I thought when he came in, but he got hurt. "A lot is going to depend on where he is once he steps foot in vet camp in terms of where he is health-wise and minute restrictions, that may be the case. All of thats going to play a major role in STAT in terms of where we go with our ballclub and him playing, because I just dont know at this point." Stoudemire worked hard last summer following an injury-plagued 2011-12 season, training with Hakeem Olajuwon to add low-post moves. But he had surgery to clean up and remove tissue from his left knee in training camp and was sidelined until New Years Day. He was playing well in March but then ended up needing the same procedure, called a debridement, on the other knee. He returned for the second round but was clearly rusty and played just 33 minutes, Woodson hardly using him in the final two games. The Knicks didnt get nearly enough scoring in the paint against Indiana, something a healthy Stoudemire could have changed. "I think STAT ... couldve really helped us in that area because we had developed him over the summer to give us some low scoring, and the fact that he just wasnt, I dont think, where we needed him based on his injuries, that kind of hurt us a little bit," Woodson said, acknowledging the Knicks were a jump-shooting team this season and may have to look at adding someone with a low-post game. The Knicks gave Stoudemire a five-year deal worth nearly $100 million in 2010, but hes been unable to remain healthy. He and Carmelo Anthony havent played enough to be comfortable and productive together, and when Stoudemire was sidelined to start the season, Woodson moved Anthony to Stoudemires power forward spot. Anthony ended up winning his first scoring title and the Knicks their first division title since 1994. Once Stoudemire returned, he was limited at first to about 20 minutes a game, which was gradually increased to 30 before he was hurt again. Woodson never seemed to consider starting him, even when frontcourt injuries left few other options, and will have to hope Stoudemire can be healthy enough to give him something to think about next season. "Thatll be for us to determine where our roster winds up next year and where everyone else is," Grunwald said. "I thought he had a great role in terms of where Woody put him in to be successful, in terms of coming off the bench as Woody said, and whether that continues next year or not will be determined. But theres no grand plan per se that hell start or not start. Itll be determined on what Woody decides is best for the team that will give us the best chance to win." Bears Hoodies Jerseys Sale . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short.

Neeraj Chopra comes from a traditional Indian joint family. In Panipat, the families of his father and three other brothers share what he describes as a happy house. None of his siblings or cousins play sport, but since Neeraj made his foray into Javelin as a 14-year old in 2011, he has had their wholehearted support.I wasnt really into sports till my mid-teens, Neeraj tells ESPN over a crackling telephone line from Poland. I just did some casual running before the local coach introduced me to the javelin and it went from there.Neeraj shot into the national limelight on Sunday morning when news trickled in of his historic gold at the IAAF World U-20 championships in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz.World U20 record!Watch the 86.48 throw of Neeraj Chopra IAAF (@iaaforg) July 24, 2016Not only did he become the first Indian in history to clinch a world championship gold in a field event, Neerajs throw of 86.48m created a new world record, surpassing the previous best by nearly 2 metres. His throw was in fact among the eight best of the year and ahead of the 84.58m thrown by Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad and Tobago to win gold at the 2012 Olympics in London.This was my best throw ever, it was almost four and a half meters longer that Ive ever thrown, even in practice, he says. I have no idea how it happened, everything just happened perfectly during the throw. Maybe because I was representing India, I was feeling a bit inspired from within.I started with a throw of 79.66m. When the spear left my hand for the second throw, I felt this would be something special. Anthony Miller Hoodie. But I thought it would be around 83 metres. When I saw the outcome, for a second I couldnt believe it and then obviously, I was ecstatic.Despite the throw being higher than the Olympic qualification standard of 83 metres, Neeraj wont be at Rio because he failed to make the grade by the cut-off date of July 11. He had nearly ensured qualification by clinching gold at the South Asian Federation games in Guwahati in February and equalling the national record with a throw of 82.23 metres.However, he was hampered by a back injury subsequently that took longer than he hoped to heal. Neeraj says the time away also led to some technical faults creeping in before he rectified them over this extended training and competition stint in Poland.Neeraj is an admirer of Czech Republics three-time Olympic gold medalist Jan Zelezny, and hopes to match his idols perfect technique. Zelezny also holds the world record of 98.48 metres, set in 1996, and Neeraj is confident that this performance in Poland will act as a springboard for him to aspire to similar heights. He says the trick is to focus on a goal-oriented training schedule over the next few years.I am not going to Rio but my ambition is to do the best I possibly can at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, he says. I will go for gold. Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
