Stoudemire Not Loving New York Right Now

It's gonna be a long year Amare
After the Minnesota meltdown and being kicked around by the Rockets on Sunday, Amare Stoudemire isn't liking what he sees in New York right now. Especially after fans rained boos on the Knicks in the fourth quarter.

Stoudemire says his teammates are accustomed to losing and they need to play with a sense of urgency. "It's definitely something that I'm not accustomed to. It's not fun. "We're a young team and we make mistakes but we can't keep doing the exact same thing every night. We just gotta find a way to grow up."

Well Amare, this is what you signed up for and you should've known what you were getting yourself into. A Knicks team that's going nowhere. Hey, you're the one who took the money and ran.

Stoudemire also added this.  "I don't understand why we're not playing with the urgency. I'm not used to that. "We're not playing like we're on a four-game losing streak, now five. We don't have that sense of urgency. It's almost as if it doesn't matter and it's not something I'm used to."

You're not used to it, but you better get used to it. You were the lone big time free agent that signed with the Knicks with no help on the way. You, my man, are not a one man calvary. But you're so used to winning, you should've went to Chicago. Here's more from the $100 million dollar man.

"We just can't have guys complacent and comfortable with losing. "I can't stand that. It's more attitude. It's more heart. We have to show more heart and go after it. We're still not having that sense of urgency to dig for loose balls, get down on the floor. We're not showing that we really want it. Maybe the winning mentality has never been here. "I'm used to winning."

That's right their not used to winning, but you were blinded by dollar signs. You should've checked the record and did your due diligence. I just think Stoudemire was focused on getting his money and his stats. Since he was winning in Phoenix and was going to play for a coach he was familiar with (Mike D'Antoni) he threw conventional wisdom out the window. My conventional wisdom says, take a little less and sign with a team that has a real chance of winning.

Stoudemire better mind trick himself and do it fast, because there is no immediate help on the horizon.

Stoudemire's shooting 45% and turning the ball over 4 times a game. He should look in the mirror before calling out his teammates.
