Amar’e: Nets Have Potential To Turn It Around
January 21, 2010, 7:20 am

Among the 2010 free agents, there’s the Big Three–LeBron James, Dywane Wade and Chris Bosh. Then, there’s Amar’e Stoudemire. Still only 27, Amar’e is likely to get a lot attention. He says there are teams he’d automatically say, “no way” to. The Nets aren’t one of them. “I think that’s a team with potential,” Stoudemire said. “They can definitely contend in the near future [with] the right pieces.”

Be thankful the Nets have the pieces we have. If Free Agents are smart or have smart agents, they will realize how easy it was for Harris to score with Carter, if we have a VC type player like Joe Johnson maybe Harris could do what he once did.

Free Agents aren't only looking at the record.

it's good to hear a FA be willing to say something like this. no guarantee that it's not hot air, but at least he doesn't sound like an arrogant, selfish prick... ala dwayne wade.


Imagine if LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh decided to take pay cuts from their max contracts and all signed with the same team and spent the next five years trying to win as many championships as they could.

Not going to happen, Wade said.

Not because he doesn't think it couldn't. But because he's not willing to take a pay cut.

When I presented the option to him recently, he laughed for about five seconds before answering.

"I ain't heard that. I ain't heard that. My first time hearing that one," Wade snickered. "I got two kids, man, I got to think of them.
I ain't never thought of that one. But I'm cool on that right now."
