The Last Angry Fan:
Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire had himself quite the playoff series against the Heat, didn’t he? Tearing his hand open after punching the glass case enclosure for a fire extinguisher, then missing Game 3 because of his stupidity, and finally fouling out in Game 5 after being called for an offensive foul on Shane Battier. However, what Stoudemire did to Battier after the foul may help the Knicks star redeem himself for his recent transgressions.
After bowling over Battier, Amar’e offers his hand to the fallen Heat forward in order to help him back to his feet, a gesture that Battier willingly accepts, until Stoudemire pulls his hand away in a sweet psych move to leave Battier hanging.
A bit of a dick move by Stoudemire, or a little good-natured gamesmanship by the New York player? I mean, it was pretty funny, and I’m sure Battier is cool enough to laugh it off, just as I’m sure Stoudemire was aware that his night was over, so why not get one last shot in against an opponent.
But enough of my yakking, you decide for yourself…
What you probably missed because it was almost inaudible was the Heat’s PA announcer saying that Stoudemire had been “extinguished from the game.” Now that was a dickish move, yet completely awesome.
BEST OF MAXIM
LEND A HAND
Amar'e Stoudemire shoves Shane Battier out of the way and is called for an offensive foul and then puts his hand out and then takes it away before Battier is able to get up. Battier doesn't like that and grabs Stoudemire's shorts to help him get back up from the floor.Talk about sportsmanship!
MIAMI Mike Miller is eyeing two things. One, obviously, is a first NBA title.
The other? When the Miami Heat season ends, his daughter will be old enough for Miller to make another trip to the tattoo parlor.

The Heat star had a little fun at his former teammate-turned-Knicks guard's expense, saying, "I know Mike has made more shots in this series than he made all last year."
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Miami's LeBron James will be announced Saturday as the NBA's MVP, the third time he's won the award in the past four seasons.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the results have not been released. James is expected to be presented with the trophy Sunday by Commissioner David Stern before...
As the Miami Heat finished off the New York Knicks to win their playoff series in five games, even their PA announcer got a quick jab in at Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire.
Heat PA announcer Michael Baiamonte was telling the Heat faithful that Amare had fouled out and said that he was "extinguished" from the game making light of his post game punching of a fire extinguisher...
