Charles Barkley says Amaré Stoudemire has no skills left


We know Charles Barkley is never one to bite his tongue. In a recent interview the TNT analyst told New York Knicks fans, they’re in trouble if they have high expectations from Amaré Stoudemire this season.

“You all in trouble with Amaré. I like Amaré as a person, but I don’t see him doing anything in the NBA, to be honest with you. I think he has lost his skill. He lost his talent.”

“He played the game on talent when he was younger,” Barkley added. “He played the game 100 percent on talent. And now he has lost his talent and he is in serious trouble.”

Amaré is only averaging 11 minutes a game so far this season, but has already missed a game to “rest his body.” STAT’s health issues are the reasons why the Suns didn’t want to re-sign him. Chuck also added:

“He is a 7-foot jump shooter who is not a good rebounder, not a good defender. He can make some shots periodically, but the problem with the Knicks has always been on the other end of the court on defensive rebounding”.
