10:08 AM ET 03.31 | Steve Kerr had left the Phoenix Suns a few weeks before the club elected to let Amar'e Stoudemire walk to New York. But the former Suns general manager agreed with ownership and the club's medical staff that Stoudemire was a medical risk not worth taking. "Yeah," Kerr said. "I was on board with it." As Stoudemire recovers from yet another knee surgery and questions swirl over whether he'll ever return to his All Star form, Kerr said he feels "sad" for his former player because "Amar'e just loves to play basketball." Neither Stoudemire nor the Knicks can say Stoudemire will return to the basketball court. He had right knee surgery two weeks ago, just five months after the same procedure on his left knee. Stoudemire is currently in the third year of a five-year, $100 million contract.

This is the same idiot that signed Shaq for big money and proclaimed, "if it works I am a genius, and if it doesn't then I'm a moron".

So in his own words, he is a morn, so he can shut up now.

I think Carmelo will turn out to be a sympathetic figure ultimately. He wont get a ship as long as he shares his prime with Lebron. He may get one by teaming up with Lebron but at best you can call him Drexler or Malone to Lebron's Jordan...

He's not completely done. It doesn't look good, though.
