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:

New York Knicks star Amar Stoudemire might be feeling a little down, as he agreed to be the butt of jokes in the latest commercial for the satellite company DirecTV, as the screenshots of the commercials appears to show Stoudemire poking fun at himself.Although it appears that Stoudemire isn't actually talking in the screenshots, it seems that a narrator is giving examples on...
The Miami Heat are headed to the second round after defeating the New York Knicks tonight 106-94, and the Heat PA announcer decided to poke fun at Amare Stoudemire’s expense. The Knicks PF had to have emergency surgery earlier in the series when he punched a fire extinguisher case and causing severe damage to his [...]
ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING LIN
The Knicks were just eliminated from the playoffs, but that didn't prevent Stoudemire from expressing his wish that veteran free agent Steve Nash comes to New York.
MIAMI The Miami Heat and New York Knicks have had some most interesting playoff squabbles over the years, highlighted by brawls between the teams in 1997 and 1998.
The most recent series largely was tame on the court. But it did feature Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire cutting his left hand after whacking the glass surrounding a fire extinguisher following a Game 2 loss at AmericanAirlines...
Miami Heat apologize to Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire for PA announcer
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!
The following bit of information may shock you: Amare Stoudemire finished with fewer dunks than Kris Humphries for the ’11/12 regular season. Amare’s 83 slams (Hump had 92, in case you were wondering) were just good enough to put him in a four-way tie for 11th… nine positions down from the number two spot he occupied just two years ago. That was the ’09/10 season, back...
There are athletes with class (Shane Battier) and then there are athletes with very little class (Amare Stoudemire). If you haven’t seen a lick on NBA basketball, you’ll know which one is Stoudemire here.
It looks like someone is bitter that he’ll be enjoying the second round of the NBA playoffs on his couch. Nice guys do finish first sometimes. But then again, it helps...
Would you expect anything else from passionate New York Knicks fans?
“When the dude hits a fire extinguisher guys that’s Amar’e!” And to think this is the nicest thing that these hardcore fans have to say about Stoudemire. According to this song, the sole reason for New York’s disappointing end to the season is because of Amar’e. While I agree with a lot of what...
Amare Stoudemire fouled out with under five minutes left in Game 5 between the Knicks and Heat on Wednesday night, but the best part was what ensued after he knocked over Shane Battier. The Heat forward was on the ground and was being offered a hand by Stoudemire who then retracted. Amare was either teasing Battier, or he walked off the floor ticked off after realizing he had fouled...
Nearing the end of last night's Knicks/Heat game five, Knicks star Amare Stoudemire was called for a charging foul as Heat forward Shane Battier was knocked down by his dunk attempt.At first, Amare Stoudemire looks like he is going to help Shane up but ultimately decides against it and walks away leaving Shane on the ground:
Wow, what an awesome move. Just a slap in the face huh? What do you think Battier had to say after this? Ummm dude it's cool I didn't want to grab your hand anyway, YOU JUST PUNCHED A FIRE-EXTINGUISHER IDIOT!!!! Oh and I also forgot that we just beat the crap out of you guys and knocked you out of the playoffs. So enjoy your moment to shine, because it ain'...
Just like everyone else last night, we called that the New York Knicks would get ousted by the Heat. All things considered, though, you have to give it up for Bibby, Amare, and Chandler for not going...
