The season has started off strong for the Knicks as they begin 2013 with a record of 4-0. Defense has been the key for the Knicks to start as the team currently sits atop the league in BPG and 3rd in DRPG. Amar'e Stoudemire's defense has looked much better this season averaging 6.8 RPG and 1.6 BPG. In other news there have been a couple of roster moves early on to note. The Knicks have agreed to a trade with the Miami Heat that would send Metta World Peace to South Beach for center Chris "Birdman" Andersen and a future draft consideration. Andersen will be a welcome addition to the Knicks roster as a solid backup to Tyson Chandler thus taking some pressure off of Amar'e Stoudemire as well as allowing newly acquired Andrea Bargnani more time to utilize his strengths at the perimeter. Sources close to the team have also told us that the Knicks have released PG Beno Udrih as well as offering a contract to Brooklyn NY native Sebastian Telfair.
