So Amare Stoudemire is not happy, he isn't happy with the players, he isn't happy about the effort and he isn't happy about the losing. I really don't want to touch on this topic too much because it pains me to even talk about the abysmal sucking we have been producing so i'll provide a few quotes from Amare himself.
Amare Stoudemire's New York Knicks were down 18 in the fourth quarter, minutes away from their fifth straight loss, when the boos started to rain down on the Garden floor.
"It's definitely something that I'm not accustomed to. It's not fun," Stoudemire said after the Knicks lost, 104-96, to a Houston Rockets team that came into town with just two wins. "We're a young team and we make mistakes but we can't keep doing the exact same thing every night. We just gotta find a way to grow up."
"I don't understand why we're not playing with the urgency. I'm not used to that," the Knicks' $100 million man said. "We're not playing like we're on a four-game losing streak, now five. We don't have that sense of urgency. It's almost as if it doesn't matter and it's not something I'm used to."
"We just can't have guys complacent and comfortable with losing," Stoudemire, said with a look of pure frustration on his face. "I can't stand that. It's more attitude. It's more heart. We have to show more heart and go after it."
"We're still not having that sense of urgency to dig for loose balls, get down on the floor. We're not showing that we really want it," he said.
"Maybe the winning mentality has never been here," he continued. "I'm used to winning."
"It's a foreign land for me right now"
I actually agree with Amare but one thing is certain, if we keep this up we'll be the Dallas Cowboys of the NBA. Full article (here)
