I'm not he want to one up the evil empire of Lebron and Bosh, for not letting Rudolph join in any reindeer games.

What a shocker...

Ouch for the Suns!

I must say, I feel bad for Steve Nash in this case. His job has gotten harder since that team in 2005 with Joe Johnson, Amare, Marion, and Quentin Richardson broke up.

The Suns have had to deal with Amare's injuries, not finding a shooting guard to replace Joe Johnson's skills (and I like J-rich, but just saying), and the short stint with Shaq that didn't work out.

Amare leaving after having such a great season/post-season is only making his job harder.

On to Miami / Chicago or New York

As expected. Maybe the Suns won't offer him the max after all. :shrug:

The way you guys make it sound, he can't resign with us? I'm praying Bosh goes to Miami because I heard Chicago doesn't want him. That's leaves us and NY. I like our chances at getting him back.

Would suprise me if he just goes. The big guy isn't an idiot. Perhaps this is just a means to get the Suns to increase their offer.

I dont know why there are reports NJ still wants him. It might hurt Favors in the long run.

He''ll still be in talks with Phoenix .

Amare to NY book it.

ManRam posted this in the Magic forum.

The Suns recently saw MRI exams of Amare Stoudemire's knees and remain concerned, according to the Arizona Republic.
The health concerns may very well prevent the Suns from offering Amare a six-year deal. That would likely mean that they'll lose him. It's a significant point because if the Suns are that concerned about Amare's knees, fantasy owners need to be concerned as well. He played in all 82 games a year ago, but remains an injury risk.

6 years max or he is gone?
