|Dan LeBatard said on PTI today that most people were concerned about the Suns rushing Stoudemire back from the left knee injury. I saw no talking head, NBA insiders included, ever mention that Amare was rushed back, nor did anyone write it. As I noted in my column on Sunday, every prominent writer around the country waxed poetic about how Amare was going to change the face of the postseason in the Western Conference. And the guys wearing the makeup were all in lockstep with the writers. I love PTI (TiVo'd everyday) but LeBatard's being silly. He may have been skeptical, but no one voiced a concern about the Suns rushing him back. I can imagine the beat on Thursday will have a lot of backpedaling involved.
