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.
THEY. ARE. NOT. EVEN. PLAYING. THIS. SEASON.
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.
