After acquiring Andrea Bargnani and Metta World Peace this off season, questions have come up about who the Knicks will start in their front court.   Carmelo Anthony is obviously starting, and you knew they'd have Tyson Chandler helming the center spot, but would they play along Metta to start games, and bring Bargs off the bench for offensive fire power, or would they start Andrea to help space the floor for Melo to operate in the post.  

Knicks head coach Mike Woodson says so far he likes the make up of Carmelo, and Chandler alongside Bargnani.  

 

“It’s looking good,” Woodson said on Sunday. “I don’t know who’s going to start yet. But I like the makeup of Andrea and Melo on the floor at the same time with Tyson [Chandler]. In the scrimmage we worked that combination. It wasn’t bad.”

“Me and ‘B’ had a great week, just playing together, spacing it out on the court, me trying to learn from him, him trying to learn from me, trying to see what spots he likes out there on the basketball court,” Anthony said. “For the most part, he’s actually a smart player; he can play off people.”

Amar'e Stoudemire is coming back from yet another knee operation and is said to be on limited minutes.  Also, Woodson is yet to name his starter at the two-spot, who is believed to be Iman Shumpert.
