The marriage between Amar'e Stoudemire and the Phoenix Suns needs to come to an end.
It is obvious when watching him play that he is "bored," and he needs a change. So do The Suns.
With trade rumors going around the past week, Amar'e vows to step up his game. He said in a recent interview, "I always step up my game after the All-Star break, I elevate my game in the second half of the season."
Yeah, well, what about November, December, and January?
Whatever team lands Amar'e will be getting a very good player, but fans of whatever team lands him will realize real fast that Amare doesn't play any defense, and he does not rebound.
A few rumors floating around have been:
Amar'e Stoudemire, Matt Barnes, and Leandro Barbosa to Miami for Shawn Marion, Michael Beasley, and Mario Chalmers.
Amar'e Stoudemire to New Jersey for Jarvis Hayes, Ryan Anderson, Stromile Swift, Yi Jianlian, and a #1 pick.
Amar'e Stoudemire and Leandro Barbosa to Portland for LeMarcus Aldridge, Jerryd Bayless, Travis Outlaw, and a #1 pick
I dont see any of those deals going down, but I do see Amar'e being traded after the All-Star break is over.
