Amare Feeling Better, Cockier

by October 22, 2009

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.”
