Amar’e Stoudemire is the subject of an hour-long EPIX Original Documentary entitled Amar’e Stoudemire: In The Moment that will premiere on April 19, the eve of the NBA playoffs.
The video clip above is the most interesting of those released in advance, and features Stoudemire discussing the meaning of the teardrop tattoo he has on his face below his right eye, which is a tribute to his brother Hazell who passed away in February of 2012.
There are a few more clips on the EPIX YouTube page worth checking out, and we’ll have a review of the documentary for you before it drops next Friday.
TNT to cover NBA games with only former players, no traditional play-by-play men
Sources told ESPN.com the Bucks think Middleton, who suffered a hamstring tear just days before the season began, “has a chance” to return to the lineup during a three-game homestand next month before the All-Star break.
Whether Middleton ultimately makes his season debut before or after the All-Star Game, he is expected to be kept on a minutes restriction as he eases way his back from the injury, sources said.
The Bucks have started Tony Snell, who has held his own as an outside shooter. But Middleton will upgrade Milwaukee on Snell’s biggest strength and provide massive defensive improvement. After a strong start, the Bucks have really struggled lately on that end.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has led Milwaukee to a 20-21 record, though the team is better than its won-loss mark indicates. The Bucks will be even better with Middleton, who will rival Jabari Parker as their second-best player and fit seamlessly.
