The New York Knicks are in full on meltdown mode apparently.  Amare Stoudemire cut his hand after punching a hard surface in the locker room after their Game 2 loss to the Miami Heat.  Stoudemire has looked like a shell of himself and his frustration must be mounting.

This is a stupid move by him.  No reason to punch a thing and hurt yourself after a game.  This is what will keep the Knicks from advancing.  Stupid plays from their stars are just going to hurt.  You need to be firing on all cylinders.  They are firing in the wrong direction apparently.

What exactly is wrong with Amar’e?  How can you be this dumb?  You need to suck it up and be a team player.  This only hurts your team in the long run.  If Amar’e Stoudemire misses any time, it will become difficult for the team to advance.

Actually, I take that back.  The way Amar’e Stoudemire has been playing, this is good for them.  Amare has been sucking the life out of the team.  Their defense might pick up after this.  It can’t be any worse.  Amare has shown no motivation whatsoever.  He is looking like a guy who needs to hang it up.  He has an awful contract and is dragging down the Knicks.

We will keep you updated on this as more information comes out.  This injury could keep him out for some time, depending on how severe it is.  It is not worse than the apparent brain damage he has suffered.

Did Amare make the 20 Most Self Centered Athletes list?

 

While wins and losses are certainly important, many people forget that major sports executives, management, and players are all businessmen trying to get the best possible and most efficient return on investment (ROI).

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
