"I'm pretty sure the guys who are looking...from the free-agency standpoint want to get better, they want to win a championship," said Amar'e Stoudemire, the Phoenix Suns forward who can opt out of his contract at season's end and join the free-agent class that may include LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. "Speaking for myself, I definitely want to win a championship, that's the ultimate goal."

Insisting that free agency is the furthest thing from his mind, Stoudemire didn't rule out the possibility, although he did emphasize how important the record and makeup of a potential suitor could be, saying players "never want to be associated with a bad team."

Maybe he should rebound and play D and this Suns team can be even better.

They could have gotten one in Rudy if their owner didn't let Paul Allen buy Rudy from them! :D

I think if he goes to the Bulls, they have a chance... If, of course, he is willing to play some d... Or if he goes to Miami... Wade has been taking them to the playoffs playing with scrubs...

I guess if he leaves he is taking the easy way out. Phoenix always put a contender around him. He is the one that is supposed to deliver. Maybe he goes by his word. Amare stoudemire to the lakers will take less money for a championship. If he does leave especially for L.a I would burn his jersey.

Thing is, he said the ultimate goal is a championship. Maybe I'm just overanalyzing what he said, but that sounds like, he'd be willing to take money over a ring for now, as long as eventually he has a chance at a ring.

That will never happen. The Lakers are out of money, unless he wants the MLE.

He would not fit with the lakers. We have enough 4s and he will not take the mle. My guess is he will go to Chicago, Cleveland, or Miami.

I remember he was on the radio saying that he would love to re-unite with Mike D'Antoni. So I think he might go to the Knicks. He would fit right into that overrated system.

I remember he talked so much crap about how much better he was than Chris Bosh. :pity:

At first I really was liking the idea of Amar'e coming to NY but I'm not sure anymore.
Lee plays no Defense but pretty much gets the same stats Amar'e does.
And Amar'e is going to want a MAX which he shouldn't get since he is do 1 dimensional at this point.

I know, however if your going to give a guy a MAX he should be able to do more then just score.

I think he is either being health conscience this season since 2010 is coming or he is just having an off year but if this is who we get in 2010 its going to be a disaster. Lee already gets bashed tremendously for literally having no D other then in his name.

He could go to Miami.

That's the only team that has cap and is a decent playoff team.

Other than that, stay with Phoenix.

Amare wants to play on a "contender", Suns could be that again with an upgraded SF and a real C who can protect the basket. He should just stay in Phx. Looks like they wil win 50+ games this year anyways. Might not be a contender but just a few pieces and they could be a lot better.

With Joe Johnson not resigning, I think if the Hawks signed him they would be set.
PG- Bibby
SG-Solid Veteran Free Agent, whoever falls within the budget
SF: Josh Smith
PF: Al Horford
C: Amare

Of course I'm stupid and I'm a Hawks fan.

He's started playing D, just can't rebound.

I think Dallas would be a good place to go. They won't have Erick Dampier or Drew Gooden on the books meaning no centers. Amare would be instantly on a legit Western conference team and fill a Mavericks need, maybe pushing them into real title contention. I don't see him not wanting to start with Kidd, Howard?, Marion, and Dirk with the JET still off the bench.

Who would you play at Centre? Because Amar'e isn't a Centre.

Who would want Amare when theres still Bosh? Amare can't play D (neither can Bosh) and for an athletic PF, his rebounding numbers are pitiful. Also I wanna see how he does without a Nash on his team.

Kakaroach
12-02-2009, 05:56 PM
Yeah its Amare, he might leave after all. But the Suns are a decent team, no contender though. Maybe Miami if D. Wade re-signs there? I dunno, but him saying this makes things interesting.

If Drew Gooden can start and post almost nightly double doubles, Amare can do even better. The west doesn't have many huge centers anymore besides LA and Yao that might trouble the 6'10" Amare.

However, his dynamic would mesh well in Dallas with players like Kidd, Dirk and Terry and former teammate Marion in running the floor in transition.

does that mean that amare is comin to the lakers in 2010???

I don't think we have enough cap room to sign him

thephoenixson28
12-02-2009, 06:57 PM
Ok let me explain something. Amare if you are thinking of winning a championship, sign for less money and let that clear the door for other free agents to sign here. He is not going anywhere were he is going to get max dollars and have a great team.

honestly.. i see amare signing with cleveland after next season.. the NBA will make lebron have a great team.. shaqs 20 mil goes off the books at the end of the season. z may retire. tahts another 10 atleast.. i dont understand why people dont see this coming.
cleveland is going to get either bosh or amare next season

Now whats been said is that... Marion and Stoudemire never got along and you could always tell on the court, they never developed a chemistry together.. Don't see Dallas doing this.. they like Centers who can rebound and block shots.. Amare doesn't do that.. He's too similiar to Dirk.

Amare in nowhere near Dirk. Dirk is a way better rebounder, scorer, 3 point shooter, free throw shooter, and defender. Only thing Amare does better than Dirk is dunk.
