Okay so my title was a little shot at Amare Stoudemire and the New York Knicks continued attempt to get a championship. Good Luck. Hey the Miami Heat are struggling right now so I can’t talk to much (if you consider a series tied at 2 in the eastern conference finals a struggle).
But here is some good news for Amare. Necolebitchie.com reports that he proposed to his long time girlfriend and mother of his kids Alexis Welch. Amare reportedly pulled out all the stops, as he proposed to her in Paris at a hotel overlooking the Eiffel Tower.
I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place. I am so happy she said ‘Yes’ and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.
The moment was surreal. I’m still floating. It’s great to allow someone, you truly trust and know, to take care of your heart. We have been deeply in love with each other for longer than most marriages last. Yesterday, day and night, was truly the best I ever had. The weather was great, the restaurant was fabulous, the city lights were so romantic. When she said yes, a tear fell from my eye.
It’s been a rough year for Amare, from losing his brother, to losing a fight with a fire extinguisher and being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. Not to mention the Jeremy Lin craze and losing his coach D’Antoni. It’s good to see him getting away from basketball for a while and tending to the important things in life. Congrats.
