Amar’e Stoudemire says goodbye to Knicks fans with a poem

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Late last night, as the All-Star Game in Madison Square Garden was dwindling to a close, word broke that the New York Knicks had reached a buyout with their forward Amar’e Stoudemire. This became official today, as the Knicks waived Stoudemire, potentially allowing him to sign with a team heading to the playoffs. Today, Stoudemire took to social media to say goodbye to Knicks fans via a poem…

Here is a transcribed version that’s a little easier to read…

Poem by: Amar’e Stoudemire
NY NY what a beautiful city
A place where you can hang out with Anna, JayZ & Diddy

Its a place absent of excuses and patience
If your smart, you can meet leaders of every nation

NY NY big city of dreams
Everything in NY isnt always what it seems

In the land where the jungle is concrete
The money flows Dow Jones and Wall Street

Home of #STATcity and the #Knickstape Orginator,
Shalom to all my fans, Salute to all my haters.

Peace and Love
Amar’e Carsares Stoudemire Sr.

    I believe he should have written “you’re”. It seems that he is not so smart..

  2. Julio Angel says:

    sorry you got the shot end of the deal AMARE. THE KNICKS down fall was when they made that stupid trade with CARMELO ANTHONY. We gave up way too much for a selfish, over rated player!!!!!!!!! WISH YOU THE BEST AMARE

    not bad for a player.At least he wrote what he felt at that moment.Could do with cutting “the” before The Knicks though.Works better for a rapper
