In his recent column on Mike D'Antoni (http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?section=magazine&id=3797805&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab1pos1), Bill Simmons takes a shot at Amar'e Stoudemire stating "Or Amaré Stoudemire? (Is he even an All-Star anymore?) ". How did Simmons go from praising Amare, back in at the beginning of the season said Amare was having a "Career Year" and was probably going to make Second Team All-NBA, to not even an all-star? Wheres the love Bill?
Amar'e's Season Stats: 22.2 ppg, 8.7 boards, 2.2 steals, and 1.1 blocks.
Amares obviously not putting up insane numbers but he has a solid stat sheet and has been extremely consistent (11 straight games over 20 points).
