Amar’e Stoudemire retired from basketball on Tuesday as a member of the New York Knicks, the organization announced.
New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudermire said the Atlantic Division is "still open," according to a report from ESPNNewYork.com's Ian Begley. The Knicks have lost seven consecutive games and fell to 4-17 -- the worst start to a season in franchise history -- with a loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said hearing word of teammate Amar'e Stoudemire's buyout was "hard to believe."
