Amare Stoudemire #1 New York Knicks Forward Size: 6-11, 260
Upper Deck MVP Card
2011-12 Season Stats: PPG: 21.6 RPG: 8.8 BLKPG: 1.4
Although not quite the player he was in Phoenix, Stoudemire provides New York plenty of offensive power given his size and athletic prowess. His ability to drive and finish still is among the most explosive in the league and he should continue to be a force with Carmelo Anthony. Expect Stoudemire to to provide New York the elite big man they need in the coming years.

Congratulations to LeBron James for winning his 3rd MVP trophy of his career. Despite an individually outstanding performance this past season, lots of work remains to be done as the NBA playoffs haven’t been kind to James over the years. As the Heat get set to play the Pacers with a 1-0 lead tomorrow personal achievement means nothing to James as championships have always been and always will be the measuring stick of greatness.
Please enjoy the above autographs that were obtained several years ago through a friend that worked at Upper Deck. The three cards above are part of an set that is extremely hard to find and even more difficult to put together autographed. As LeBron James memorabilia has become very popular and valuable, I will be holding onto these rare cards into the coming years.
“I’d give all three of them back for an NBA championship,” James said. “It’s all I care about. It’s all I know.” LeBron James via ESPN.com
