PHOENIX - Amare Stoudemire signed a five-year contract extension Monday with the Phoenix Suns worth about $73 million.I think that's great. I hate the suns because of what they did to my Dallas Mavericks during the playoffs last year. It didn't help that they used a former Mav hero to achieve this. Amare Stoudemire seems like a genuinely good guy in a sport with very few good guys. He's also a complete bad ass and I consider him to be one of the most exciting players to watch. While his story isn't that different from most NBA players, his father died when he was in puberty his mother has been in and out of jail, his brother is in federal prison, and he came into the league right after high school, but hey, he won the rookie of the year over Yao Ming. Anybody that reveals Yao for his fraud is a great guy. Actually, I have no idea if he's a good guy. He seems like a nice kid and he's never been caught raping a hotel worker. That has to count for something. A lot of NBA players are over paid. Kwame Brown, Michael Olowakandi, Allan Houston... hell, all of the knicks... and Shawn Bradley, just to name a few. Amare might be the only player that's actually making what he should. That's great.
