Amare Stoudemire Injures Hand After Foolish “Glass Punching” Incident
Amare Stoudemire’s anger got the best of him after the Knicks lost last night’s playoff game to the Miami Heat.
In a fit of rage, Stoudemire punched a fire extinguisher and causing his left hand to be cut up in the process.
The NBA star took to Twitter to apologize for the incident. “I am so mad at myself right now,” he tweeted. “I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start.”
While Tyson Chandler is still battling the flu, Baron Davis is fighting against a bad back and Iman Shumpert out with a knee injury, New York’s team seems to be in need of any help they can get. But now it looks as though the Knicks will be short another team member for Thursday night’s game.
“That’s two players out of the starting lineup,” said Chandler, assuming Stoudemire will be out. “It makes it tougher. Your emotions run high. In a split second, decisions can alter things. You can’t fault anybody.”
It seems to be up to Carmelo Anthony to save the day. “Nobody wants to lose,” said Melo, “but my thing is, as one of the leaders of the team, I’ve got to keep everybody positive. I’ve got to keep everybody’s head up to keep everybody confident.”
Good luck Knicks! — Jazmine Gray
