Stoudemire Loses Battle With Glass



Amare Stoudemire of the New York Knicks tried to beat up a glass enclosure of a fire extinguisher following his team's loss to the Miami Heat on Monday night. He came out on the losing end. It seems like Amare couldn't even win a contest with defenseless glass enclosure.

Actually that has to be one of the dumbest things I've heard a professional athlete do in a long time. If this was the NBA's version of the Wonderlic test, he failed miserably. Not only does he come out of this incident looking like a dumbass, he seemed to severely injure his hand. Apparently, he's almost a sure bet to miss the next playoff game against the heat and might miss the rest of the series.

That means, we probably won't see this numbnut again this season. Amare just put his team in a tough position. We shouldn't be surprised that a professional basketball player acted like a selfish jerk by not putting his team first. The Knicks should sit this goof down and explain that punching glass can be dangerous.

Maybe this Amare needs to go back to kindergarten. Seriously, my 4 year old daughter has more common sense than this guy. Amare and the team might classify this as an accident but what this shows is that he is just another violent professional athlete.

It seems that Stoudemire deals with anguish and tough times by acting like a thug gangster. If this were a joke, I'd be laughing but there's nothing funny here. Amare acted violently in this incident and the only saving grace is that he punched glass and not another human being. Thankfully he only hurt himself.

Amare is in need of professional help. A sane person does not act in this manner. I'm not an expert but it seems like he might be suffering from anger management issues. This is not the way a professional basketball player should be acting. In this case, you Can eliminate the word professional and just call an him an athlete.

I do have one other question. Isn't it against the law to tamper with a fire extinguisher or other emergency equipment? Is there a possibility that he could be charged with a crime? At the very least, he should be suspended by the NBA.

In the end, it wasn't only Soudemire who lost the battle with the glass enclosure; The New York Knicks are losers as well, since they will be without one of their players for an unspecified amount of time.
