New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire posterizes Miami Heat forward LeBron James. Posted by Ben Golliver.
New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire has put more players on posters than just about anyone else in the NBA, so it's hardly news when he embarrasses someone with one of his tomahawk jams.
But when that someone is Miami Heat forward LeBron James? Different story. It's big time news.
Check out Stoudemire posterizing James during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game between the Knicks and Heat in Miami. With the Heat leading 93-82 with 5:03 seconds left in the game, Stoudemire collects a pass from Knicks guard Toney Douglas in the middle of the paint and goes straight up with it. James leaves Danilo Gallinari in the weakside corner to sneak over and contest the dunk, but gets hammered on in the process.

Stoudemire finished with 30 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 43 minutes, but James and the Heat had the last laugh, as Miami closed out the win, 106-98, at home.
Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 40 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes. James finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in 40 minutes.
