Wednesday night I watched Amare Stoudemire score 42 points as the Suns scored 140 and 141 on successive nights against the hapless Clippers. It seemed that the Suns might have a chance to climb back into the playoff picture after all, as they returned to their trademark uptempo style after changing coaches.
I was pleased that the Suns decided to keep Amare rather than trading him. Then we learned today
that he underwent surgery this morning for a partially detached retina, and will be unable to resume physical activity for about 8 weeks. Arrgggh!
We do wish Amare a full recovery and will be interested so see what the Suns can do without him for the rest of the season.
