Boardroom Talks: Amar’e Stoudemire Always Understood the Game

Last Updated: May 17, 2024
The former Suns and Knicks star sits down with Boardroom’s Eddie Gonzalez to discuss his All-Star NBA run, his recent jersey retirement, and much more.

Amar’e Stoudemire has always done things his own way. The former NBA standout was one of a rare set of stars who made the successful leap directly from high school to the league. Despite having not stepped on a court until he was 14, Stoudemire demonstrated a natural skill that propelled him to being named Florida’s Mr. Basketball by the time he collected his high school diploma.

As he leveled up, he stayed on top, earning Rookie of the Year honors while discovering early in his career how to navigate the league. He turned to the veterans around him to seek advice on how to excel in all aspects of the game.

Now, three years into his basketball retirement, Stoudemire sits back to reflect with Eddie Gonzalez for the most recent episode of Boardroom Talks. Together, they have a candid conversation to discuss his recent honor by the Phoenix Suns, who raised his number to the rafters, his deep relationship with Steve Nash, and his hopes for a future selection to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Additionally, he discusses his iconic parties and how they helped inspire his most recent entrepreneurial endeavor, Stoudemire Wines.
