Amar’e Sourdemire got a little creative with the photoshop recently

Amar’e Stoudemire, late of the Knicks, has recently signed with the Dallas Mavericks after being bought out of his contract. He seems to be excited about the move to Dallas, because he couldn’t even wait to get his hands on the real Mavs jersey before tweeting a (clearly photoshopped) picture of himself in the jersey:

His twitter handle also wants to let you know that he “is real,” in case you were concerned.

Stoudemire was bought out by the Knicks a week ago, and quickly made the move to sign with Dallas and escape the hellhole that the Knicks have turned into. That kind of move can make anyone excited enough to learn photoshop.

Stoudemire was a disappointment in New York after signing a 5-year, $100 million deal in 2010. Knee injuries have seriously hampered his effectiveness, which led to the buyout of his contract just two months before it was set to expire.

However, he still does have something left in the tank, and in a smaller role in Dallas, he could prove a useful cog as the team gears up for a playoff run in the terrifying Western Conference. Stoudemire is expected to debut with Dallas tonight in Oklahoma City, where you can see him wearing a real Mavericks uniform.

Now for my part, I’d like to buy out the apostrophe in his name. (Seriously, what purpose does it serve?)
