From prep to Rookie of the Year, Amar’e Stoudemire suffered the way many big men have in the past: countless knee problems. While that was true, Amar’e was a dominating scoring presence in the paint, earning six All Star appearances and averaging over 20 Points per Game seven seasons. Along with Steve Nash, Stoudemire made the Phoenix Suns Championship contenders and hoped to do the same with the New York Knicks and though he got off to a good start, his knee problems would keep him from living up to his full potential.
Saying all of this, is it not funny that we are talking about a player who was named to an All NBA team five times in any negative light? This is a solid contender for the Hall but it would not be a major surprise if he failed to get inducted in the first few years of eligibilty.
