Obviously with the NBA back to business, that means the end of players’ moonlighting escapades. AMARÉ STOUDEMIRE had to grudgingly turn in his stripes and give up his position at Foot Locker as a result recently. Here’s how things went…
Judging by Friday night’s Knicks-Heat contest, Stoudemire may have been a bit too hasty in retiring from his shoe job. Amaré shot a poultry 5-for-14 in scoring just 12 points in his showdown with Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and the Heat as Miami booted the Knicks, 99-89. Not the epitome of swag…you think???
Stoudemire, who mentioned earlier that he and his Knicks were “going hunting in Miami”, apparently brought a pop gun to a gunfight. Dude scored his first bucket with 1:17 left in the first half.
Maybe it would have helped if he had his main hunting dawg, Carmelo Anthony, with him Friday night.
