NBA: Amar’e Stoudemire Explains The Suns Wanted Nothing To Do With Him, So He Retired With The Knicks


Most NBA fans were surprised this week when Amar’e Stoudemire made his retirement announcement. We weren’t surprised at the retirement itself, given his constant battle with injuries and now age.

Simpson chase back in 1994 but it is possible he was just messing with viewers of game four of the NBA Finals last night. He claims the reason Simpson made his friend Al Cowlings drive so slow during that infamous police chase was because O.J. wanted to hear the rest of the NBA Finals game on the radio that night between the Knicks & Rockets!

NBA: Knicks Losing Ways Are Starting To Take Toll On Carmelo Anthony’s Loyalty
