Dallas Mavericks big man Amar’e Stoudemire ripped his team’s effort after last night’s blowout loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
His stern message, pasted below, was surely neutered by his choice to wear a ridiculous shirt.
“I came here to win, and we’re [4 ½] games out of being out of the playoffs, which is unacceptable. This is something we can’t accept. We’ve got to find a way to refocus. We’ve got to key into the details of the game of basketball.
“We can’t cheat the game. We can’t screw around in games and practices and joke around all the time and figure we’re going to win games. This is the pros. It’s the highest level of basketball. We’ve got to act that way.”
Stoudemire’s belief he’s on a sinking ship explains the Captain Crunch outfit. And with Michael Jackson out of the way, he’s the only person on earth who owns it.
Imagine getting called into your boss’ office today and told to shape up. Now imagine that happening while he was wearing this getup. You’d be fired for insubordination immediately as your giggles flowed.
Impossible to take a person seriously while looking ridiculous.
