Amare and Spade: Episode 4


Amare Stoudemire’s All-Star self-promotion campaign finished up today with his fourth and final video, “Baby Powder.”

You all know by now that Amare leads Andrew Bynum by about a gazillion votes, and surely the viral campaign had something to do with it (getting listed as the Suns’ “center” probably had more to do with it, though).

To Amare, at least, it has been a success.

“Fans have stopped me in the street, sent notes on my Twitter and Facebook pages and have checked out Vote4Amare.com,” Stoudemire said in a release. “I truly appreciate their support. I had a great time working with David Spade and I am glad the fans have enjoyed the videos as well.”

I do find it interesting how two stars in Phoenix’s locker room differ so much in terms of their approaches toward gaining All-Star votes from the fans, who can continue voting online for Nash and Amare until Monday (hint, hint, Two Time could use your vote).

Amare went all out with a high-budget campaign to try to win a race that he didn’t really need much viral support to win. Nash honestly and truly could not care less if he gets voted in, going so far as to create a video that playfully mocks players like Amare who put so much time and effort into their viral efforts.

Efforts such as the video below, the finale of Amare and Spade:

Oh yeah, and Thunder Dan is en fuego

A little bit of Charles Barkley on Saturday Night Live before we get back to talking about the Suns blowing leads again.
