Amar'e Stoudemire(notes) is a man of the people. A few weeks ago, he submitted his entry for dunk of the year in the full-court category, and last night he presented his half-court edition. Just making sure all his bases are covered, I'm sure. Give the people what they want, and all that.
I feel kind of bad for Kosta Koufos(notes). I mean, he had only been in for about a minute and a half, and then he got his face smashed on. You don't usually expect that to happen that quickly, and especially not after a drop step and pump fake. Clearly he was unaware how badly Amar'e covets the dunk of the year crown.
Then again, if you're seven feet tall and don't expect Amar'e Stoudemire to try to dunk on you, you've never watched him play. Dunking on seven-footers is basically his favorite thing besides incomprehensible tattoos.
