NBA Lockout: Amare Stoudemire Wants Players To Form New League

Who needs the NBA?

Apparently not Amare Stoudemire. Earlier today, the New York Knicks power forward considered shooting hoops in Europe. Now he’s revised his future goals and has asked his basketball brethren to help him in his quest to establish a new league entirely.

Stoudemire elaborates (via Hoopsworld.com):

"If we don’t go to Europe then let’s to start our own league. That’s how I see it. It’s very serious. Yeah. It’s very, very serious. It’s a matter of us coming up with a plan, blueprint and putting it together. So we’ll see how this lockout goes. If it goes one or two years, then we got to start our own league. If it don’t resolve then we’re thinking about starting our own league. Obviously we’re trying to get things started now as far as, you know, getting the lockout resolved. You know what I mean? We want to play NBA basketball. But if it doesn’t happen, what are we going to do? We can’t just sit around and not do anything."

The message is clear: Amare Stoudemire wants to play ball, whether it’s in the NBA, Europe, or the blacktop behind his old high school.

And if that doesn’t work, there’s always Slam Ball.
