Amare Feeling Better, Cockier

STAT’s game and health are slowly rounding into shape. As for his self confidence, it never went away: “Sacramento power forward Jason Thompson, all 6 feet 11 inches and 250 pounds of him, was at the free-throw line at US Airways Center on Tuesday night when the Suns’ Amaré Stoudemire loudly chimed in from the lane. ‘I’ve got a mouse in the house at the other end,’ said Stoudemire, officially an inch shorter and a pound lighter. The classic line for a size mismatch in the post drew a dismissive ‘pffft’ from Thompson, who later fouled out in 22 minutes of play.”

    Since Gary Payton isn’t working for NBA TV anymore, maybe he could help Amar’e with a lesson in trash talking?

    WTF? That could be the lamest thing I’ve ever heard used as trash talk.

  • steve

    its not trash talk, it just shows his confidence and disregard for thompson

    It does sound lame. And it’s not really a disadvantage on Amare’s part when he has so much more experience and is regarded as one of top PFs in the game. Just makes him sound like a douchebag. I don’t know why I’m using that word so much today..

    He would have never made it in the 80′s or 90′s with that…GP, Jordan, Bird, Miller, Maxwell, Barkley, etc…he’d wake up in the middle of the night crying from some of the things they would’ve said to him

    Amare is the fiercest dunker left in the A.

    would he keep talking when he goes up against Dwight and Duncan? i doubt it. can’t just talk when you go against scrubs.

    Amar’e thinks he’s better than he really is. Which speaks volume about his ego considering that he’s one of the best 4s in the league.

  • UnRel

    amar’e needs to shut his mouth and play a full season before he can talk again..

  • rainman10

    remember when he averaged 37 in that playoff series against the Spurs? I think he is good enough to talk a little trash. And don’t tell me he isn’t athletic anymore blah blah blah. He is ready for this season, ready to average 25+ and 9.

    Mouse in the house? Amar’e preparing his career of a Dr.Suess author

    wow. if he said that to me, i’d have to ask him to explain it to me. for realz. i don’t get it.

    It’s jason thompson dog. it’s not like he is going up against KG or Timmy. just playing mind games with the young buck. play wit it.

  • Balltastics2000

    Kobe said the exact same thing on the court about Damon Stoudemire in that Spike Lee doco. Maybe it’s an old school taunt that’s been used in the L for ages?

  • ClydeSays

    I’ll be impressed if he’s healthy for most of the season and actually plays some D when he’s on the floor.

  • karan

    at Balltastics: well, damon stoudamire is actualyl nicknamed the mighty mouse, so kobe saying that to him is more of a “personalized” jibe

  • Yesse

    I dont think Amare should get too excited.Amare can play offense and get points for sure, but he cant play defense like Garnett or Gasol or even Sheed.
