This is pretty entertaining… Here’s what Amare had to say.
NBAFanHouse: As if being picked against by almost every media pundit out there isn’t enough to stoke the Suns’ fire, they continue to hear about the Lakers’ frontcourt that so many expect to have its way with Stoudemire & Co.
“We definitely play down low,” Stoudemire said when asked if he was tired of hearing about the 7-foot duo of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. “They just have two guys, so once you beat Gasol you have your little brother right behind you. That makes him a better player.
“I played against Gasol in Memphis, and it was total domination. But now he has his little brother with him so he’s a little bit more confident now because he has someone to help him out in the post. But we’re still here. We’re back, and we’re going to see what happens tonight.”
Asked if Bynum’s knee problems could perhaps turn Gasol into the defender of his younger years, Stoudemire went into ruthless mode.
“If he’s banged up, we’re going to try to bang him up some more,” he said. “There’s no mercy man. It’s the Western Conference finals. We’re here to play, and we’re here to win.”
