Amare Commits To Team USA

With more recuperation time than he anticipated due to the Suns' second-round exit, Amare Stoudemire committed to play for the senior national team this summer with a Tuesday phone call to USA Basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski.

"It's exciting," Krzyzewski said Wednesday. "Amaré said, 'Coach, it's going to be an honor to play for the U.S. I'm ready. What do you want me to do over the next two months?' That type of commitment shows great maturity. It's a verbal commitment that is strong. We expect him to be a strong player. I told him to relax for a little bit because getting to be a first-team All-NBA player after that (microfracture) surgery is really one of the more remarkable accomplishments for a player."

As long as Lebron and Wade don't go, we'll win.
