Nice play Amar’e, well executed. Now play some damn defense!

Mayor Bloomberg needed an assist from the bench yesterday to measure up to Knick star Amar’e Stoudemire. After teaming up to open a new basketball court at a Brooklyn community center, the 5-foot-7 mayor hopped on the locker-room bench to pose alongside the 6-foot-10 NBA giant.

The court — originally used at Radio City Music Hall during last year’s inaugural World Basketball Festival — will now benefit kids at the Taylor-Wythe Community Center in Williamsburg. Bloomberg lauded Stoudemire’s commitment to city kids. “Today is a great example of what can be accomplished when people give back to their community,” he said.
