Some might argue that Amar’e Stoudemire opened himself up to any and all fire extinguisher humor when he cut his hand while punching a glass encasement after the New York Knicks lost Game 2 to the Miami Heat.
But apparently some subjects are off limits when it comes to humor in the NBA playoffs.
On Thursday, the Miami Heat apologized on behalf of the joke.
"Last night at our game, our PA Announcer had a momentary lapse of judgment and used a poor choice of words in describing Amare Stoudemire’s fouling out of the game. This is not who we are as an organization or who he is as an announcer. Both the Miami HEAT and Michael Baiamonte apologize to Amar’e and the New York Knicks for the inappropriate choice of words."
Glad we got that out of the way. No hard feelings, right Amar’e?
