Even Austin Croshere is getting in on the Amar'e Stoudemire-fire extinguisher fun.

The longtime Pacer, who retired from the NBA after 14 games with the Bucks and Spurs in 2008-09, posted the picture to the left on Twitter prior to Indiana's 97-74 win over the Magic yesterday.

In case you can't read it, the masking tape reads, "*Please do not hit*," an obvious reference to Stoudemire's run-in with an American Airlines Arena fire extinguisher.

The tweet got plenty of love, with dozens of retweets and favorites, according to Twitter.

Yesterday, Stoudemire said there was a "great chance" he'd play in Sunday's Game 4. He's been ruled out for tonight's Game 3.
