You can't blame Amar'e Stoudemire if he were to ever get tired of being asked about LeBron, Chris Bosh, the Heat or any other team in the NBA, especially since the Knicks are playing so well.

Stoudemire let his feelings known at practice today when asked about Chris Bosh. The question was how did he feel about being ranked behind Bosh on the power forward list during last season's free agency bonanza.

"I was a little surprised by that. But again, I’ve been in a winning situation my whole career. It’s been somewhat opposite for Chris," Stoudemire said. "But he’s playing well. He’s been playing well his whole career. We go back to high school. I really don’t compare myself to Chris Bosh."

Bold? Maybe. But Stoudemire has been the best power player in the league so far. Yes, that includes Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol, Kevin Garnett and Bosh.
