Amar'e Stoudemire and family pose as the Beatles

Wednesday December 24th, 2014

It's been a hard season so far for Amar'e Stoudemire and the Knicks, who are 5-23 in their first season under head coach Derek Fisher.

But Stoudemire is in good enough spirits that he recreated the Beatles' iconic Abbey Road cover with his family. While the Miami Heat used to go by the Heatles when they had LeBron James, Stoudemire's family draws of his nickname of Standing Tall and Talented (S.T.A.T.) to become the STATLES.

In the final season of a five-year, $100 million contract, Stoudemire has enjoyed a bit of a bounce back season. After battling injuries for the past few seasons, Stoudemire has played in 27 games for the Knicks and is averaging 13.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in just 26.6 minutes per game.
