As a Spurs fan, it was always good to have the “no defense” Suns with Amare and Steve on tap. Where as the Suns could always count on full team effort from Nash, Stoudemire was all about his numbers. Hopefully for him, his mental maturity will arrive before his body gives out. Maybe he could watch Spurs film to help him lose his selfish ways.

“Here’s the scoreboard with Stoudemire on the floor this season:

Knicks 3,052, Opponents 3,099 — or losing on average by 1.3 points every 48 minutes.

With Stoudemire on the bench?

Knicks 3,406, Opponents 3,153 — or winning on average by 7.4 points every 48 minutes. ”

That’s an incredible swing. Amare and Carmelo just don’t seem to compliment each other at all.
