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.
Jazz boost international bona fides with new minor-league coach
Everyone in the NBA — heck, nearly everyone living in the Western hemisphere — knew Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland. That should kill the Cavaliers’ leverage and make it hard to get enough quality back.
New GM Koby Altman — the guy thrust into the job when David Griffin was shown the door — pulled it off brilliantly.
That’s what I talk about in this new PBT Extra. With Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder, the Cavaliers remain the team to beat in the East this season. The Brooklyn Nets pick gives them flexibility going forward, whatever LeBron James decides to do next season.
First time at the plate in the big leagues and Altman crushed it to straight away center field.
Cavaliers-Celtics deal first offseason trade involving players who just met in NBA Finals or conference finals
That is an incredible fact, one which speaks to LeBron James‘ cachet. The Cavs are emphasizing this season, LeBron’s last before a player option, by loading up with veterans Thomas and Crowder. With LeBron still reigning in Cleveland, the Celtics are delaying their peak by acquiring the younger Irving.
Adding to the intrigue: the Cavs and Celtics are still favored to meet in this year’s conference finals. At minimum, they’ll face off in a(n even more) highly anticipated opening-night matchup.
