Amar'e doesn't like McGrady professionally or personally

Mar 27, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

The N.Y. Post has a tidbit this morning regarding Amar’e Stoudemire. Apparently when Stoudemire was in high school, debating making the leap to the NBA, he approached McGrady at a football game to ask some advice, and McGrady brushed him off.

Not a good move, bro.

Stoudemire told the post he doesn’t like McGrady as a player or as a person, which is a pretty tough statement. Amar’e did say that the rift wouldn’t be a deciding factor on if he chooses to play in New York this summer, should he opt out, which he’s changed his mind about, oh, seven hundred times in the last two months.

It’s not surprising that McGrady has this beef. He’s proven to be one of the more bizarre personalities in the league. He’s deeply committed to charity work and actually produced a documentary about his trip to Darfur. But he’s been questioned by teammates who have thrown him under the bus on a consistent basis, angered management, and been run out of three towns on a rail. The man’s an enigma. Wrapped in a puzzle.

And kind of a jerk, apparently.

    Why would Amar’e go to McGrady to offer advice? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

    This is dumb and childish. 12 years later he has something to say? Grow up and leave the past in the past. How do u write a story and call someone a jerk? You know nothing about him personally. Maybe you are the jerk!!!
