Morning Coffee! Hello, Mr. Stoudemire -- Now, How Do You Spell Your First Name?

Is it Amare or Amar'e? When it comes to this Stoudemire fellow who just committed to signing with the New York Knicks, how do you spell his first name?

↵

To be honest, I had never seen Stoudemire's first name spelled with the apostrophe until the last couple of days. Did I miss a request from Stoudemire to become Amar'e instead of Amare? Somebody help me out here.

↵

By the way, our friends at Posting and Toasting have put together a nice analysis of how Amare (Amar'e?) impacts the Knicks, especially if they end up trading David Lee.

↵

Stoudemire is a great scorer, but the rest of his game leaves much to be desired. Lee excels at many of the small things Stoudemire has never done well.
