Where Amar’e Happens: Stoudemire and his signature D

So this is what it all comes down to? This??? Once THE most explo­sive power for­ward in the league is now a court prop in Knicks games, for the times when coach Wood­son feels like play­ing 4 on 5 and com­pletely killing any rhythm his already strug­gling team may have man­aged to establish?

& in these lim­ited min­utes, Amar’e has already given us the defen­sive moment of the year - & it’s not even like the Pis­tons ran a com­plex series of screens, curls and cuts to take advan­tage of the his pitiable defen­sive IQ. Granted he was never much of a defen­sive player, but this play alone should inspire him to spare the traces of sta­bil­ity in his knees, thank his stars that he had his time with Nash in Phoenix for peo­ple to remem­ber him by,  and retire before some­one actu­ally tries to embar­rass him.
