You know that old saying, “Add insult to injury?” Pretty much the literal definition of Amar’e Stoudemire’s week.
First, he found out that the burst cyst in his knee would keep him out of the lineup for six to eight weeks. Then he lived on the East Coast, which was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy and eventually led to the Knicks’ first game being postponed. Then, after the rains had stopped, he went outside to check on his Range Rover and found it in about three feet of water. Not a great few days.
On the plus side, at least he didn’t walk over to the car, realize he’d left his copy of Hootie & the Blowfish’s “Fairweather Johnson” in the CD player, then try to break a window to get it out. We all know his propensity for punching glass and that’s probably the only thing that could make this week any worse.
