And after another first-round exit, he now hopes to sign where he can compete for a championship, placing a desire to play for a contender at the top of his priority list this summer. “I’m already paid in full,” Stoudemire proclaimed while looking ahead to his pending free agency. “Money is great to have, but it’s not what I’m searching for at this point. One is the opportunity to win. I think that’s the main ingredient. Two is being able to perform at a high level and be in a position where I can display my skills. My goal is to graduate from the NBA at a high level. That’s my ultimate plan. I think those are the two most important things at this point. And a city where my family can actually dwell and enjoy school is important, too.”

They have their own agendas, and they know whether they want to go to New York or they don’t want to go to New York. And there are a lot that want to go to New York, so it isn’t like there aren’t people out there.
