Read Amar'e Stoudemire's goodbye poem to New York City
The poem is composed of five couplets about Stoudemire's adopted hometown. It covers everything from his friendship with Vogue editor Anna Wintour to the #knickstape meme.
NY NY what a beautiful city
A place where you can hang out with Anna, Jay Z & Diddy
Its a place absent of excuses and patience
If your smart, you can meet leaders of every nation
NY NY big city of dreams
Everything in NY isnt always what it seems
In the land where the jungle is concrete
The money flows Dow Jones and Wall Street
Home of #STATcity and the #Knickstape Orginator,
Shalom to all my fans, Salute to all my haters.
Peace and Love
Amar’e Carsares Stoudemire Sr.
Stoudemire, of course, didn't help lead New York to a championship, so Knicks fans will just have to settle for the poem.
