Default Rumors: Stoudemire on trade block, possible to Toronto

Quote:
Sources believe the Suns are more apt to shop Stoudemire to the Eastern Conference, where Toronto and New York are natural possibilities. Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo drafted Stoudemire for the Suns, and Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni helped turn him into an All-Star. Still, the acrimonious nature of Colangelo’s and D’Antoni’s departures could lessen Phoenix management’s willingness to deal with them.

Who they would want from Raptors? More likely they would want CB4.

Yes, once he is approved by the owners of Grizz.

Where's Amare's best friend? I'm sure he'd give us an opinion on it! Or wait, was he Rafer Alston? or Josh Smith? Bah!

LOL

Classic.

I think BC should try his ass off to try and get Amare and one other solid guy from that team [Hill, Barbosa]...It would definitely be an exciting shake up and could probably brighten things up here in TO.

I don't know, I feel like Amare would have a lot of the same emotional/ego problems playing here that Bosh has. He'd probably be a good compliment to Bargs' game, though.

Bosh AND Amare would be epic.

Probably cost us Bargs and JO though I'd imagine....

Amar'e wants to be the star on the team, all the focus should be on him. In PHX Shaq and Nash get attention.

Amare could dominate this team.

We'd let him too, he'd destroy people inside...it's different since his game doesn't revolve around the jumpshot like Bosh. That and he's just physically imposing...much stronger than most PF's in the league.

Don't kid yourself - he likes to shoot. He gets lots of chances around the basket thanks to Nash and now Shaq. He would have to play a different game here. But I wouldn't mind if they did get that other piece as well.

I prefer Bosh over Stat. Its true that Amare doesnt settle so much for jumpers (he does quite a lot though), but he is a even worse defender than Bosh and has a much worse attitude than him. His knees are bad too and he is older. Give me Bosh anyday. At least Bosh seems like he could be a good defender if he was in a good team. stat is lazy.

I'm starting to anticipate nothing happening. That'd be a kicker huh?

the reason i take Amare over CB is that Amare demands respect. He will punish other players and other teams and go out of his way to get respect. CB on the other hand expects people to give him respect without really earning it.
in other words; amare is a do'er, while CB is a wait'er.

we all know how tentative this team is, and its lack of passion.
you bring Amare here and that problem is solved.
