Amar’e Stoudemire says that incomes the 2002-03 Rookie of the Year award will eternally stand out to him throughout his time as a Phoenix Sun.
(through Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles):
Stoudemire: “Being the Rookie of the Year out of high school was probably one of my favorite moments because that hasn’t happened before.”
Quentin Richardson: “And they didn’t expect it.”
Stoudemire: “Yeah, exactly. And it was kind of a tight race because Yao Ming was like the next generation big; and we in the same class. I’m like this high school kid, you know what I’m saying?”
