Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Sweating profusely, Stoudemire sounded excited and optimistic today - departue from Media Day. Season opener is a
distinct possibility if he continues this way. He had his most strenuous basketball workout. "It’s going great,'' Stoudemire said. "I couldn’t be more pleased with the progress right now. Still getting stronger. I'm still getting strong enough to withstand the pressure of playing. The progress has been great so far. A lot of basketball drills. I was really getting after it. Today was the hardest day by far with more basketball work and explosiveness today.’’ Stoudemire isn't making the 3-game road trip but has his eyes on playing the last two exhibition games before Oct. 30's season opener vs. Milwaukee.
