It may be hard to picture in 2014, but there once was a time when Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire was one of the most lethal pick-and-roll finishers in the league. The 6’11” power forward made a name for himself with his patented one-handed jams. Amar’e’s dunks stuffed daily highlight reels and he was truly a force to be reckoned with. Then came the injuries.
Stoudemire is a shell of his former self. When he isn’t injured, he looks tired and lethargic. But the veteran won’t quit: Stoudemire has worked his way back on the court, and though he isn’t as dominant as he once was, he has become efficient and consistent.
Amar’e took MSG back a few years when he threw down this one-handed dunk on the Nets in the Battle of the Boroughs.
