Amar’e Stoudemire Leaves Shane Battier Hanging [VIDEO]

Amar’e Stoudemire acted like he was going to help Shane Battier off the floor on Wednesday night.  Just as Battier went to grab Stoudemire’s hand, Amar’e pulled his hand away.  That’s dirty pool.

The New York Knicks saw their season come to an end on Wednesday night in Miami.  The Knicks lost Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals to the Miami Heat 106-94.  New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire wasn’t exactly in a good mood last night when it was clear that the season was coming to a close.

The Knicks were trailing Miami 96-80 with 4:48 left in the game.  Amar’e Stoudemire picked up his sixth foul of the game when he was whistled for an offensive foul against Shane Battier.  Amar’e pushed Shane Battier to the floor while making a move.  Stoudemire acted like he was going to help Battier off the floor, but then reconsidered. 

Stoudemire pulled a grade-school, psych move on Battier by pulling his hand away when Battier reached for Amar’e hand.  I have to admit; it was pretty funny.  It was definitely also childish and ridiculous.  Grow up, Amar’e.  We’re not in 2nd grade anymore.  And while you’re at it, don’t punch glass in frustration while you’re at it.  Thank you.
