HoopsHype Amare Stoudemire rumors


February 16, 2015 Updates

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony barely had any time to decompress after a busy All-Star Weekend before he was thrust back into reality with the news that his teammate and friend Amar'e Stoudemire agreed to a buyout with the team and became a free agent. "My reaction when I first heard [about the buyout], which was maybe ten minutes ago, it was hard for me to believe, I thought they were lying about it," Anthony said after scoring 14 points to go with 7 rebounds for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game. "Knowing that I'm losing a friend, a teammate, a guy who I wanted to come to the city and play with. One of the main reasons why I'm a New York Knick today was because of him. To see him leave, to see the situation and where he's at right now, I know what he wants, and you have to respect that. As an athlete, as a competitor you only want the best for your friends."
