It was a first for Amar’e Stoudemire, spending two hours in a prison gym Friday, speaking to about 250 incarcerated adolescents ages 16 to 18.

Stoudemire was part of a panel that also included ex-Knick and Syracuse star John Wallace, NBA veteran Etan Thomas and Malcolm X’s grandson, Malcom Shabazz, rapper Styles P and ESPN’s Chris Broussard. The Rumble went along for the visit.

Stoudemire got a gigantic ovation before getting serious when he took the microphone.

“The plan for us is not to succeed, and it goes back to when there was slavery,’’ Stoudemire told the a.ssembled. “What you got to do is look at yourself in the mirror and say: ‘What am I going to do so I will not be a number?’ 
Riker’s Island DCPI’s Office

“In the school systems, our neighborhoods, it’s a hard situation for us. But you got to be man enough to know you got to be good fathers and stay out of here after you get back home.’’

Afterward, Stoudemire said he had never done this before.

“The message we want to get across is fatherhood,” Stoudemire told The Rumble’s Marc Berman. “A lot of young brothers who are fathers are incarcerated. ... We’re going to keep their spirits up.”

“We couldn’t be more grateful to Amare Stoudimire and the other stars for coming to Riker’s Island to inspire today’s young men to stand tall in the face of daunting challenges,” said chief Michael Hourihane.

Thomas, born in Harlem and a former Syracuse star, told the prisoners, “Amar’e and I were on CNN [Thursday] and we told the interviewer we were coming to Rikers Island. She said, ‘Why are you doing that? They’ve already given up on life.’ That’s what she said on live TV. There’s a lot of haters out there.”

Raymond Felton arrived in Westchester last month for voluntary workouts in very good shape, according to an NBA source. That is good news, since conditioning has been a knock on Felton, especially last season in Portland.

With Knicks training camp opening today, Felton will get to meet the media formally for the first time since rejoining the team, with the first set of practices set for tomorrow.

The bad news for many New Yorkers is Felton’s predecessor at point guard, Jeremy Lin, won’t arrive here at all.

Lin’s “17’’ Knicks jerseys and countless designs of Linsanity T-shirts still hang plentifully in clothing stores around New York, but mostly on clearance racks. Lin will be in Houston today, where triple the amount of their normal media turnout is expected — many from Asian outlets, according to a Rockets official.

It was 48 days of storybook — from the time Lin scorched the Nets on the fabled night of Feb. 4 to his last game as a Knick against the Pistons on March 24.

It has taken a lot longer for the Knicks front office to explain why it no longer wanted to be a passenger on the ride to Linsanity.

Today, the silence will break when the Lin-less Knicks hold Media Day. General manager Glen Grunwald and coach Mike Woodson will, for the first time publicly, explain the decision not to match Lin’s revamped, backloaded, three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet, instead bringing back Felton to be their new starting point guard in a sign-and-trade.

After Felton was obtained, the Knicks didn’t stage a media availability for him — as they did for signees Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby, both backups.

After the July 17 decision, amid furor from Knicks fans, the team’s front office went underground. Grunwald was invisible and Woodson was on a gag order. If it were owner James Dolan’s edict not to explain the move — considering Lin had become a worldwide phenomenon — to their crushed fan base, it was a cryptic call even for Knicks’ media-policy standards.

The irony is the club had a case beyond the financial nightmare (The final year of Lin’s contract would have cost $43 million alone — $14.8 million in salary and $28.2 million in luxury tax, thanks to the new collective bargaining agreement’s escalating tax rates for repeat offenders).

Discounting finances, the Felton-over-Lin move made basketball sense, considering where the Knicks are in their quest of their first title since 1973.

According to a person close to Grunwald, Felton was a better fit for Woodson’s halfcourt style. Lin was a scourge in Mike D’Antoni’s read-and-react speedball system that relies heavily on point-guard penetration and decision-making. That’s the old days. Now Felton, Kidd and Spanish Leaguer Pablo Prigioni form a three-headed point guard platoon that better befits Woodson’s structured style.

And is it just possible Felton is the better, more proven player than Lin, who is 24, coming off knee surgery and never having played an 82-game schedule or a playoff game.

There were too many unknowns and the championship window is closing. Felton had a solid run in his lone, 54-game run with the Knicks in 2010-11 before he was sacrificed in the Carmelo Anthony blockbuster. Felton especially worked well in tandem with Amar’e Stoudemire.

Still, the Knicks were planning to match Houston’s offer to Lin until the Rockets GM Daryl Morey ramped up the original offer sheet by making it more back-loaded in the third year. Though legal, the Morey maneuver enraged the Knicks front office which already had given 3-year contracts to Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Kidd, based on the original Lin offer sheet.

With Felton still available in a sign-and-trade for three years and $10.2 million, the move became a no-brainer, even though the fans had fallen hard for Lin during that 26-game run when he averaged 18.5 points and 7.6 a.ssists before his knee surgery.

The Lin-less Knicks gather today, perhaps less intriguing, and less exotic, but with a better point-guard alignment than 2011-12.

Berman

In his first comments since the Jeremy Lin decision on July 17th, Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said the prospect of adding Raymond Felton was too good an opportunity to pass up once the Rockets increased their offer sheet to Linsanity.

Felton, for his part, said he has a “big, big chip on my shoulder’’ to make fans forget about Lin and the lousy season in Portland he just went through. Felton candidly admitted he reported “out of shape’’ to the Blazers after the lockout.

“It comes down to Houston made a commitment to him we weren’t prepared to make,’’ Grunwald said at a press conference on Media Day. “I’m very happy for Jeremy that things worked out for him personally and his family and wish him the best. But I’m more excited about our team right now."

“We’re very excited to have Raymond back. He had a great year with us (in 2010-11)," Grunwald added about Felton, who was part of the Carmelo Anthony trade.

"We think he’s a great addition to his team. We think he’s going to make a big difference. He had an off year last year but he had a tremendous summer. Not only did he get married but worked very hard and came here in great shape. I‘m very excited to see how Ray plays this year. I expect he’ll do as well or better as he did when he was here before."

Coach Mike Woodson, whose last words to the press was how Lin was his starting point guard, was tightlipped on the move.

“This day is really about who we fielded this summer,’’ Woodson said. “We were able to get a player named Raymond Felton, a guy named Jason Kidd and Pablo (Prigioni’s) here. Three solid point guards who will help the ballclub as we move down the road.’’

With Rasheed Wallace’s imminent signing, the Knicks will have five players over 35 years old – the first club with five 35-plus players since the 2000-2001 Blazers and Raptors.

“We think we’re not old, but we’re more experienced,’’ Grunwald said. “You mention the age of our team, the team that won the championship a couple of years ago (Mavericks) was over 30 (30.4). We have excellent veterans.‘’

Woodson is fine with the age, saying he had a young team in Atlanta and couldn’t get to the NBA Finals. Woodson said Amar’e Stoudemire, Anthony and Tyson Chandler, while still in their primes, needed aging veterans surround them before the window closes.

“We felt we needed veteran guys around those guys,’’ Woodson said. “There aren’t young teams winning NBA titles. Years ago in Atlanta, we had a good run taking young players, trying to build a championship team. This go-round for me, I’m able to take a veteran team with Jason, Camby, Kurt Tomas, Ronnie Brewer. It’s important for me from a coaching standpoint. If we can stay healthy, it’s the name of the game, I think we got a shot.’’

--

Iman Shumpert said he could be back as soon as December, but said the official time frame is between December and February…Wallace was not at Media Day, as a source said he was finishing up his physical. Wallace is expected at the first day of practice Tuesday. Woodson raved about his “defense’’ but didn’t guarantee he’d be on the team after training camp ... Anthony said he is “done scoring “35 to 40 points’’ a night, saying he wants to cut back and do more things. “We need a more well-rounded team,’’ Melo said.

if Sheed does get the 14th spot (officially sometime during the week)

last roster spot will be between, Bellfield, Copeland, Shurna, Sims, Smith & Thompson (unless they bring in someone else) and the a.ssumption is whoever doesn't make the cut, will be signed to the d-league squad since NY is slowly trying to have that Erie team be more "home" talent

Woodson, on Rasheed Wallace's imminent signing, sounded cautious on whether he'd definitely make the squad. "He’s another guy who brings veteran-ship to our ballclub. Fact is, he’s asked to come out of retirement to try to get back in the league and help the team. I had great success with him in Detroit when we won the title under Larry Brown’s tutelage. He’s a great teammate. He knows how to win and he’s great from a defensive standpoint. He makes guys around him better, being able to defend the basketball. That’s going to be huge as we move forward. We don’t know if he’s going to work out, but he’ll hopefully be in camp (tomorrow) and give him a look and see where it goes from there.’’ Wallace finished up his physical today and wasn't at Media Day.
