NBA great Amar’e Stoudemire announced his retirement as a player in the National Basketball Association today, after signing with the New York Knickerbockers for his final contract in the league. “I want to thank Mr. Dolan, Phil [Jackson] and Steve [Mills] for signing me so that I can officially retire as a New York Knick,” Stoudemire said. “I came to New York in 2010 to help revitalize this franchise and we did just that. Carmelo [Anthony], Phil and Steve have continued this quest, and with this year’s acquisitions, the team looks playoff-bound once again. Although my career has taken me to other places around the country, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick.”
“For parts of six years, Amar’e Stoudemire was the face of the New York Knicks franchise because of his excellence on the court and his dedication to our community and our fans across the world. When Amar’e asked us to retire as a Knick, we were honored to oblige,” Steve Mills said.

I think that’s a credit to their player development and their culture.”
Now, almost exactly two years since current GM Sean Marks was given the league’s version of “Mission Impossible,” Brooklyn’s rebuilding process is further along than anticipated, albeit still a long way from finished. “Under the circumstances, Marks has been good,” a Northwest Division executive told The Athletic. “The cupboard was empty there.” A fellow Central Division executive concurred. “They play hard every night, have a style they are committed to playing, and there is more hope than despair there now.”
Scott Souza: #Celtics Marcus Morris on #Pistons following Blake Griffin deal: They OK. I haven’t really watched too much. They won a couple. That’s just excitement (with the trade), I think. They’re all right. I don’t think they’re over the top.
