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. Nope, we were more surprised with the fact he retired as a member of the Knicks, rather than the Suns, the team he really made his name with. It turns out, Amar’e tried to make that happen first but he didn’t feel the love from Phoenix, so he retired where he was wanted.

(Video) NBA: Brandon Knight Puts Paul Pierce On The Floor With This Crossover

This crossover may have looked like it was just on accident at first but I believe Brandon Knight knew what he was doing.

NBA: Steve Nash Officially Announces Retirement From The NBA

Steve Nash announced his retirement from the NBA today in an unusual way. Rather than a big press conference or trying to get back on the court for a farewell tour, Nash chose to write about his own retirement, via Derek Jeter’s website “The Players Tribune”. Nash with the Lakers never really worked out due to constant injuries, but nobody should forget how amazing of a player Nash was in his prime and the MVP trophies he has to back it up. He never won a title but his career is destined to end up in the Hall of Fame without question.

Poor Brandon Knight, how can you not feel bad for this guy? He has been on the wrong end of way too many posterizing type plays in his career. DeAndre Jordan dunked all over him, Kyrie embarrassed him among others and now JR Smith just made him look up at the ceiling after putting him flat on his back! To top it off, JR hit an open Kevin Love for the three pointer to complete the play. One of these days, a highlight play will finally go Knight’s way.
