Amar’e and David: The Baby Powder Chapter

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

With the All Star vote pretty much in-hand, these David Spade/Amar’e Stoudemire videos did what they were supposed to do — that is, remind the voting public that Amar’e is, in fact, All Star material. I’m saddened to say, however, that this post features the last of the Spade/Stoudemire tour-de-force, but before they leave us, Team Amar’e takes a look at one of the sillier trends going around in the the NBA:

The throwing of baby powder.

That’s right, LeBron. Hide your puppets because your excessive use of talcum is being called out. Granted, I’m the one doing the calling, not the video, but nevertheless, the point remains: If not for James and his “I’ll shower the entire lower arena with baby powder” actions, is this the way the Vote4Amar’e videos would’ve ended? Of course not. Personally, I’d respect James’ baby powder histrionics a little more if he followed Spade’s advice and threw powder all over an opponent, while talking trash directly to their face.

Thankfully, Amar’e and Dave are here to show us how it needs to be done.

Don’t forget to vote for your NBA All Star selections if you haven’t already done so. But please, and I can’t stress this enough, please stop voting for Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming.


While we don’t know exactly what McGrady’s status is, unless “seeking a trade” is a viable option, he and Yao have no business even being on the All Star voting roster. Sure, you can’t stop people from writing their names in, but you certainly can ignore the ballots that do. Instead, cast your vote for someone who actually deserves — in other words, an active player.

If you are confused about which one to pick, just watch the Vote4Amar’e videos again.

Amar’e's Goggles

Amar'e Goggles

The boys from Vote4Amare are back with their second installment, and this time, they’re not talking about practice. No. Instead, they’re talking about goggles. Now remember, OSHA teaches us the importance of taking care of your eyes with protective goggles, so why shouldn’t that apply to the NBA? Who cares how they look? Following that rationale, what if protected eyes improved your game to an All-Star level? Would you be down with wearing them then? No matter how they made you look?

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Anyway, here is Amar’e and David Spade with their second segment of their Vote4Amare series.

Whatever it is they are doing, they must be doing it right, because at last count, Amar’e was the leading vote-getter among Western Conference centers.
