The Return of Amare

Last night I took an old family friend and my former high school Spanish teacher with me to see Portland versus the Suns. But we were not there to see Portland or the Suns... simply to see one man--AMARE!

20 pts and 9 rebs later, Stat is back. He is not dominating and explosive like the last time I watched him explode for 40 against Tim Duncan and almost single-handedly win game 5, but certainly a top notch player in his prime again. His rhythm was off slightly and he mistimed a couple of rebounds, but it was electric.

Come to mention it, this may have been the most electric the atmosphere at US Airways has been since the back to back with Miami and San Antonio in January. Coach D'Antoni had Eddie House commit a foul in backcourt with 1:25 left in the 4th QTR so that he could pull Amare to a standing ovation of the 12,000 or so fans that were left in a blowout game.

It looks like I am waiting to start school at Southern Utah University until September, so I will be around when the Suns bring home their first Championship.

And it's over... I wish I wasn't so frequently correct.
