    Source: Miami Is Amare's First Preference

    Link


    One source close to the situation insisted this week that Wade and Stoudemire are closer than advertised as pals even though they haven't played together on Team USA since 2004.

    The source also said that Miami is indeed Stoudemire's first choice in free agency if he finally leaves the Suns this summer after being shopped by Phoenix at two successive trade deadlines.

    That's pretty nice to know. In fact, who doesn't want to play with such an unselfish superstar?

    I think Stat made that clear in February. Honestly this is exactly why Heat fans should not be worried about this offseason. If we make the playoffs and go out fighting we'll be in a favorable position. If we miss on Bosh, Amare and Boozer then we have serious issues as a organization.

    He wants to go somewhere where he will be the 2nd guy?? i dont see it.

    Amare wants to be the guy and right now he is. If an extension is offered and he likes the $$, im thinking he will stay.

    who know though.

    They said Miami was Bosh's preferred destination too.. I see him going to the Knicks, the Heat try to play D which Amare [not to say he couldn't just] doesn't play. He just seems out of it on D sometimes...

    he's not going to the knicks, he has always said he wants to play for a contender or thereabouts (the knicks are anything but that), and he and dantoni never really got on that well. I also think he knows he has to play with a verygood passing PG.

    i can only see him resigning in PHX or heading to Miami

    So he's going to be playing with a very good passing PG named Mario Chalmers or Carlos Arroyo?

    Seriously, people tend to throw everything Amare has accomplished out of the window. SURE Nash gives him the ball, makes him a better player (like all great PG's do), but to say Amare will be trash or will be mediocre without Nash is JUST CRAZY. He's not Kenyon Martin. Amare has developed great offensive moves down the post. He's super athletic, long, and can score at will inside the paint. He also has a good 15-18 ft jumper. He's an OFFENSIVE BEAST plain and simple.

    If you watched the Jazz vs Suns game a while ago. Amare eclipsed for 44 points. He could've gotten more but Alvin Gentry sat him with 2:30 to go. Now, I watched the whole game, and it wasn't like Nash was drawing people and doing his best to drag Amare's man to him so that Amare is wide open. MOST of Amare's shots were post moves, he himself made. I'm not taking anything away from Nash, but to say that Amare needs a VERY GOOD PG to be effective is an overstatement. Heck, Everybody needs a VERY GOOD PG. But Amare is very talented and can manage to get his 21 and 9 without Nash.

    Well If Amare goes to Miami and Bosh to Chicago and Lebron and Johnson to NYC, then you have Miami with Wade/Amare, Chicago with Rose/Bosh, NY with Lebron/Johnson and maybe Tmac, Orlando with Dwight and Vince and Boston with it's core.

    Those are your top 5 teams.

    he will stay with the suns i think. he has 17 million reasons to. he wont get that on the open market. if he waited a year he would probably get more. but then again i could be very wrong

    I don't really see Amare, Wade, Beasley, Chalmers as a championship team. Miami would be a playoff team for the next 6 years, but not sure they'd be anything more.

    your right i contradicted my self. but i never said he needs a very good PG to be effective.

    Amare is a great player, but with Nash he is just unbelievable sometimes, Alot of Amare points are from just pick and roll plays with Nash, Nash gets him alot of open dunks and open Jumpers.

    Amare still hasnt got great post moves, he's developed a bit of hook shot, but thats it.

    Amare is and always will be a Face up player, he will face you up and if you back off him he will take that jumper (which seems automatic these days), if you get up on him he will blow by you and take it to the rim.

    Nash does make him a better player though. I just hope he signs an extension with us, just not max.

    Neither one of those guys will be in a Heat uniform next year, if they do I might kill myself, plus Wade is basically the PG.

    This really isn't news. Kinda obvious and if I'm not mistaken, "sources" also said Miami was his first choice at the trade deadline.
    Also, this article says "if he finally leaves phoenix". Thats it. How is that news?
