Amar’e's Eye In Good Shape

As Stoudemire’s eye improves, so does the power forward’s trade status “Stoudemire was limited Tuesday to shooting and conditioning, Suns head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson said. Stoudemire could begin playing pickup games in two weeks, Suns General Manager Steve Kerr said after learning that the All-Star had an “excellent” check-up Monday with eye surgeon Dr. Pravin Dugel.”

    I won’t be holding my breath waiting for a healthy Amar’e.

    If the Suns trade Amar’e, i’m done with them.

    It’s good to hear. Amar’e's game is really nice. He needs to start wearing goggles. This is the second time he injured his eye if I remember correctly.

    Nice! I agree, Amare should keep wearing the shades. He looked awesome in them.

    Amare Stoudemire is one of the few POWER forwards left in the NBA…

    Amare to the warriors… They’ve had some sick players over the years, damn that’d be fun to watch.

    I just saw Amare at a Diamondbacks game on sunday against the Dodgers in Phoenix and he said his eye is fine and that he cant wait to get back on the court.

    I’m surprised, but I’m actually in agreement with Teddy on his stances on Amare’s goggles. Dude looked fly.

    The guy can ball… But i have to stop and wonder if this isn’t just BS from the Suns’ brass to boost ticket sales or inflate his trade value. Man, I wish the Suns still had integrity in the front office.

    Yes, Steve Kerr verified that Amare’s eyeball is slightly round in shape and he can see out of it, steve kerr also went onto say that he rode the bulls to some championship rings without actually contributing and that he sucks at middle management.

    Steve Kerr contributed to those Bulls teams, Darce. Trust me, I watched every game back in the days. Who hit the game/series/title winning shot in Game Six of the 1997 NBA Finals? Yeah, that’s right. Lay off my boy. As for his GM skills…no comment….

    *Dacre, not Darce. My bust. Hard to type with my little man on my lap.

    I have the 2nd three-peat on video, so I know the deal…

    He was however shocking against the Sonics.

    Just stop with the double apostrophes.
    Lets cut the fat and call the man Amar’Eye for jokes on his comeback from surgery/injury.
    Don’t do that moon hits your eye ballad though.

    Enigmatic, that sounds like a personal problem :/
