Amare Stoudemire To Miss The Playoffs Due To Rage & Lack Of Common Sense
This was the scene last night. A bandaged and bruised Amare Stoudemire was seen leaving the Heat arena after foolishly punching the casing that enclosed a fire extinguisher.
The Knicks failed to put out Miami’s flame and Stoudemire took his frustration out on the glass. It looks like it took a better hit than him because as a result, Stoudemire’s left hand requires stitches and he’s rumored to miss the rest of the playoffs.
In a display of shame, Stoudemire tweeted an apology to his fans and teammates. We all get upset and make mistakes, but to have such poor judgment and to do something so foolishly when your team needs you the most left many Knicks fans in a fit of rage!
In reality, this may be a good thing. In Stoudamire’s absence the Knicks went 9-4 with Carmelo Anthony moving to the power forward position. The Knicks return home for Game 3 on Thursday and this may just be the spark they need to get back in the series.
Although Anthony has yet to find a way to co-exist while Stoudamire is on the court, this may be the perfect remedy seeing Melo has put the Knicks on his shoulder in the past.
