Shortly after signing a free-agent contract with the Knicks back in July, Amar'e Stoudemire sat down with Steve Serby of The Post to talk hoops and swag.
Q: Your definition of swagger?
A: Swagger is something that you are born with. Some folks can practice it. But on the basketball court, it’s really more so knowing that you’re good. When you know you’re a good player, your swag comes out and it takes you to a different level.
Q: You’ve always had it?
A: I have always had it. I was blessed to be a good basketball player at a young age, and the swag just kept growing from there
Q: On a scale of 1 to 10, where is your swag at now?
A: My swag is probably at 9.8 (laughs). Hopefully the city of New York will get my swag up to a 10.
Q: So the best is yet to come?
A: Absolutely the best is yet to come.
Last night, he wore this coat to the United Airlines Arena with the Knicks set to take on the Miami Heat on their turf.
