Amare Stoudemire was born on November 16, 1982, in Lake Wales, Florida. (Click here for a complete listing of today's sports birthdays.) His parents, Carrie and Hazell, already had one son, Hazell Jr. Amare later welcomed a younger half-brother named Marwan.
Lake Wales is an hour’s drive from Disney World, but a planet-and-a-half away in every other sense. Things move slowly in this part of central Florida. Too slowly for some. The lure of Lincoln Avenue can be overpowering, and the chance to make easy money when hard work (or no work) is all you know can lead even the best young people astray.
Amare joined an AAU team over the summer and proved that there was only so much coaching he needed. His power and anticipation made him a force as a defender and rebounder. His quickness gave him a move that no one could defend. Amare would grab a pass in the low post, get his defender to commit one way or the other, then twirl and simply dunk the ball over them. He also had a nice little jumper he used when facing the basket. In his first AAU tournament, he was named MVP.
