Amar'e StoudemireAmar'e Stoudemire. Amar'e Carsares Stoudemire, born November 16, 1982, is an American professional basketball center/power forward playing for the New York Knicks. Taken in the first round of the 2002 NBA Draft with the ninth overall pick, he spent the first eight years of his career with the Phoenix Suns. Listed as 6-foot-10-inches, 249-pounds, Stoudemire won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in 2003, made five appearances in the NBA All-Star Game, made first-team All-NBA Team in 2007, and won a Bronze Medal with the United States men's national basketball team at the 2004 Olympic Games.
On June 30, 2010, Stoudemire opted out of his contract with the Phoenix Suns, which made him an unrestricted free agent. On July 5, 2010, Stoudemire and the New York Knicks agreed in principle to a contract estimated to be worth around $99.7 million over five years. On the first day that free agents were allowed to officially sign, the Knicks formally introduced Stoudemire at Madison Square Garden. With the Knicks, Stoudemire was reunited with head coach Mike D'Antoni, who had coached him with the Suns. It didn't take long for Amar'e to prove his worth. On December 15, 2010, in a loss against the Boston Celtics, Stoudemire set a Knicks record with his ninth straight 30-point game. On December 17, 2010, he set another franchise record with his ninth straight game shooting 50 percent or better from the field. All of a sudden, the Knicks were contending for a playoff berth. Going forward, because of his frequent injuries, Amar'e may be playing fewer minutes.¹
