Amar’e Stoudemire Says Goodbye To New York, Salutes The Haters In A Poem

The Amar’e Stoudemire era officially ended in New York today. Yeah, we all know the Knicks are truly terrible, and it appears Amar’e will end up with a contender, but Amar’e took the time to pen a thank you poem to the good citizens of New York. He even posted it in an Instagram caption, so you know it took some time and dedication. Classy move. When I leave an employer, I usually roll out firing the double bird while reciting Johnny Paycheck in my head.

From the Instagram caption:

Poem by: Amar’e Stoudemire

NY NY what a beautiful city

A place where you can hang out with Anna, JayZ & Diddy

Its a place absent of excuses and patience

If your smart, you can meet leaders of every nation

NY NY big city of dreams

Everything in NY isnt always what it seems

In the land where the jungle is concrete

The money flows Dow Jones and Wall Street

Home of #STATcity and the #KnickstapeOrginator,

Shalom to all my fans, Salute to all my haters.

Peace and Love

Amar’e Carsares Stoudemire Sr.

Personally, I’d read more poetry if it saluted haters.
