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.
