New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

Amar’e Stoudemire: ‘On paper, we might be the best team in the league’


You think the Heat are loaded with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh?

Or the Thunder with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka?

Or even the Hawks with Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague?

Better think again, because none of those teams hold a candle to… the Knicks – at least so says Amar’e Stoudemire.

Usually, I’d present a case why Stoudemire is wrong. Then I’d add a caveat that it’s OK for him to believe in his own team, even in spite of common sense.

But I’m not going to bother with all that. Stoudemire is so off, you don’t need me to explain why, and I’m not going to defend his right to be this illogical.

Utter nonsense. The end.

MILAN (AP) — The Boston Celtics eased to a 124-91 victory over Olimpia Milano at the Mediolanum Forum on Tuesday, comfortably winning the first of a double-header in Europe as part of the NBA Global Games.

Jared Sullinger added 14 points, as did Avery Bradley, who also had four three-pointers, while David Lee weighed in with 13 as well as seven rebounds and three assists.

Alessandro Gentile – who is reportedly wanted by the Houston Rockets, who hold NBA rights to the 22-year-old – top scored for Milano, with 19 points.
