Amar'e Stoudemire sat courtside on Tuesday night while watching the Miami Heat, a team that bounced his New York Knicks, from the playoffs.  Totally lame.

The Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat 94-90 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday in Miami.  One of the fans in attendance caught my attention.  New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire was sitting courtside for the game.  The Knicks were bounced in five games by the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs this year and he's sitting courtside at a Miami Heat game?  Really?  Come on, Stat.  You're better than that.

Could you ever envision seeing Michael Jordan sitting courtside at an NBA playoff game that involved the team that eliminated his team from the playoffs?  No way!  Jordan was the ultimate competitor.  He wouldn't be caught dead sitting courtside at a game involving the team that sent him packing.  Obviously, Amar'e doesn't have the same competitiveness as Jordan or many other players.  Step your game up, Stat.  Don't punk yourself like this anymore.
