“I’m back on the hardwood, so my job here at Foot Locker is going to be terminated.”
New York Knicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire followed in the footsteps of arguably the greatest player ever at his position, when this summer during the NBA lockout, STAT took up work at a NY-area Foot Locker store. Donning the black and white stripes is probably a bit easier than exploiting your height by changing lightbulbs and rescuing cats from trees, but just as the 1998 labor dispute had Tim Duncan eschewing odd jobs for his first NBA championship, Amar’e has put in his notice with FL so he can get back to business at MSG. Click through to see the exit interview and let us know if Amar’e deserves your 2012 NBA All-Star Game vote.
Damn man this is very sad. I bought like 2-3 pairs shoes from him in the same outlet and now I'll never see him in person again...
i need a part-time job to cover my sneaker habit...they need a replacement??? i know just as much if not more about sneakers than STAT. times is hard and money dont come quick enough when your on a salary.
Nobody on that knicks team deserves to be in the all star game. Seriously they don't play defense, Amare been playing like a little girl, Carmelo trying but he only plays D when he plays against Lebron or Kobe, nobody on that team has earned the right to call themselves an all-star.
