The Suns released a statement.
Congrats to my brother @Amareisreal on a great career! I was lucky to play with you. Enjoy your next chapter.— Steve Nash (@SteveNash) July 26, 2016
Your new favorite Sun had some kind words.
As a kid from Phoenix growing up a Suns fan @Amareisreal was my hero! Thank you for all you have contributed throught your great career!— BigSauce (@alantwilliams) July 26, 2016
When the 2003 Rookie of the Year finished his eight seasons with the Suns, he ranked fourth in franchise history in scoring average (21.4ppg), third in rebounds, free throws made and attempted, fifth in blocked shots, and held single-game records of consecutive free throws in one game (20) and blocked shots (10). And he's never been more happy to be a Knick. Today Stoudemire reflected on his time in New York.
"I came to New York in 2010 to help revitalize this franchise and we did just that. Carmelo [Anthony], Phil [Jackson] and Steve [Mills] have continued this quest, and with this year's acquisitions, the team looks playoff-bound once again. Although my career has taken me to other places around the country, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick."
How will you remember Amar'e Stoudemire?
