Amar’e Stoudemire Receives A Standing Ovation In New York (Video)


After missing nearly 30 games of the 2012-13 NBA season due to a left knee injury, Knicks’ power forward and center Amar’e Stoudemire finally made his debut at home in Madison Square Garden.

With about three minutes left in the first quarter, Amar’e Stoudemire rose from his seat and walked over to the scorer’s table for a substitution against the Portland Trail Blazers. Immediately after seeing Stoudemire stand up, New York Knicks’ fans greeted their forward with a loud roar and a standing ovation.

Not knowing exactly how the home crowd would react, Amar’e Stoudemire was most likely nervous, but must’ve felt great after hearing the positive energy from the fans. Stoudemire hugged Knicks’ coach Mike Woodson and proceeded to walk onto the floor throwing kisses to the fans for their gratitude.

At the end of the night, Stoudemire’s debut didn’t go as well as the Knicks had planned as New York fell to Portland with the score of 105-100. Amar’e Stoudemire finished the game with six points (three-for-eight shooting) and one rebound in 17 minutes of action.

Amar’e Stoudemire is evidently still “working out the kinks,” but should get better as the season goes along.

  1. Great for Amar’e! Now someone please remind his dumb @ss, walls don’t hit back, but defenders do.

    • CDR says:

      We forgot all about that incident. It was pretty funny but you could bet all the marbles in the world that it won’t happen again. Amar’e Stoudemire caught a lot of heat for that one.

  2. Did you hear Amare’s latest crack on D’Antoni never teaching him defense?


    • CDR says:

      We actually did Chris. It was hilarious although we believe it. Every team that Mike D’Antoni has ever coached always had a great offense, but a very, very poor defense.
