There's a new player on the New York Knicks, and the Big Apple is buzzing for his first game at Madison Square Garden.

Carmelo Anthony will make his debut for the Knicks in New York, when the team takes on the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

The Knicks will also welcome Chauncey Billups, as well as Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter, and Renaldo Balkman.

But all eyes will be on Anthony, who was born in Brooklyn, but raised in Baltimore after the age of eight.

Amare Stoudemire said today he had no doubt that he and his long-time friend can co-exist and play together.

The Milwaukee Bucks, who have been disappointments this season due to injuries, are languishing in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 21-34.

The bright news for Milwaukee is that star shooting guard Michael Redd is practicing and may be ready to suit up in less than two weeks.

Star point guard Brandon Jennings has recently returned after suffering a broken bone in his foot, but has shot poorly since his first game back on January 29.

Before the All-Star break, the Bucks hosted the Denver Nuggets, which would turn out to be Anthony's last game for the team. He scored 38 points on 16-of-30 shooting, to go along with 12 rebounds.
