UPDATE: Amar’e Stoudemire’s Technical Rescinded

UPDATE: To no surprise, Stoudemire’s highly-questionable tech has been rescinded by the NBA, and he’ll play on Sunday: “League took away Amar’e's tech and he will be allowed to play on Sunday. Still one away from a suspension at 15.”

STAT got tagged with his 16th tech on the season last night during a loss, and will be forced to sit out the Knicks’ next game. From the NY Post: “Knicks star forward Amar’e Stoudemire picked up his 16th technical foul in the second quarter tonight vs. the Mavericks, making him eligible to be suspended from Sunday’s Garden game vs. the Pacers if it is not rescinded. Stoudemire got entangled with Dallas’ Brendan Haywood and wrestled himself free, pushing him lightly. Stoudemire and Haywood both received double technicals, but because Stoudemire hit the magic number, he will be suspended one game if the NBA does not rescind it.”

    The techs will be rescinded on Stoudemire and Haywood…nothing to see here.

    I hope Amare checks in on Slam every now and then, and if he does, READ THIS AND TAKE IT TO HEART: I am flying from Northern Canada to New York to watch the Knicks-Grizzlies game on Thursday. This is my once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit a few feet from the court in MSG to watch the Knicks play. If you are suspended for that game and the Knicks lose, obscenities will be hurled in your direction sir. That is all.


    good luck Mike C. Northern Canada? from where dude. Yukon, Yellowknife, whithorse, Iqualuit…soo many.

    Thanks all. @Mubwar – Sault Ste. Marie, ON. There are many points further North, but since I moved here from near London, ON, this is mad North for me.
    @niQ – I’m so jacked. My mother in law used to work with the father of one of the Rangers’ team doctors, and he’s hooking us up with team doctor-style tickets. Their tickets used to be first-row behind the visiting team’s bench. Apparently they’re not quite as good now, but I was told I’m within conversational distance of Spike Lee, if he attends. As the tickets are at no cost to me, and I could get vacation at the same time as something awesome (which never happens for me), and we lucked into an awesome airline seat sale, this is the perfect storm of NYK fandom. I stuck with them through their years of suck, I get awesome tickets and now they’re good again. There aren’t words in any language that can express my excitement and appreciation for everyone who made this happen. I’m bustin’!
