Infinite sadness

It is with great sadness that I (well, ESPN) report that Amare Stoudamire will be out for four months, thus robbing us of one of the singular joys of watching the NBA. Pour some out for STAT.

i feel unspeakably injured

i am in the middle of a veritable vortex of week and now this. god is testing us.

there are few joys greater on this earth than watching that man play. what will take it's place,i do not know.

the pressure on vince to keep it up is even greater now. because everyone in that league should realize that there needs to be a certain amount of awesome on parade at any given moment, or else i lose all interest.

i'm expecting there to be at least two JOSH SMITH game televised for exactly that reason

i used to hate amare just because of that whole marbury vs kg shit, but ive come to appreciate him. aside for being dumber than a board, you have to love his game and his work ethic. he shoots around forever before games working on his jumpshot, which is really the only hole is in game.

i hope this isnt one of those "he was never quite the same after his knee" injury.

wow....maybe this is what will save him from becoming a chriswebber-type. also, this opens up INFINITE DOORS for The Matrix.

i don't know, amare seems fairly intelligent to me.

i think amare ON THE COURT opens up infinite doors for marion. without amare, johnson, AND Q, marion is probably going to face double teams for the first time in the pros. and, let's face it, he doesn't have the most beautiful offensive game. the suns will struggle, at least in the beginning, thus opening the door for...the GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS, TEAM OF THE FUTURE!

peep amare's pinup profile in this week's espn mag, and remember his hurricane relief game steez. . . there's something there, and he's still young.

He had Microfracture surgery! That's what C. Webb, Allan Houston and Jay Kidd got. That's serious shit we'll be lucky if he's only out for four months.

I know. It's really sad. THC, I'm confused about what you meant, since I worry this might cause him to become a webber type since it is the same surgery. We all saw how much CWebb's game fell off, and it was certainly less predicated on explosiveness to begin with.

everything that i've read about this suggests it isn't as severe as those other guys.

and if it opens the door for anyone, it's the lakers. did you guys know that aaron mckie and kwame brown combine to form voltron?

I don't think amare is that smart. He switched high schools for education reasons. He also had a ton of trouble passing the FCAT which as a former florida high school student, i can say it's quite an easy standardized test.

I can definitely say i'm dissapointed. However, if he doesn't lose any explosiveness, this could be the best thing to happen to his career. He could finally develop an actual basketball game to go with his freakish athletic show. Imagine amare with the ability to post up on people, make post moves with little hooks and shoot 16 footers. He would have something to go to when the athletic show isn't working. It'll also help him age better.
