Uh, oh. The levies are starting to show crack and the fall out may not be pretty. As first reported here, New York Knicks star forward Amare Stoudemire is being forced to stop renting a $37,500 per month apartment in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District in order to continue keep the four other homes that he owns and maintain his lavish lifestyle. As if parting with the apartment weren’t enough, Stoudemire is now forced to only employ a staff of two – a personal assistant and a chef. Poor guy.

Said Stoudemire when asked about not having access to the Knicks personal body guard “I can’t talk to him at all. I haven’t talked to him since the last game, so I don’t know what he’s up to. I mean, you know, I was so used to hanging around with him, he’s been there with me every day. Not seeing him for months is a little different.”

It was understandable when some second and lower tier NBA players quickly excepted deals to play overseas to supplement their incomes. It was also comical when players such as Delonte West started pursuing retail jobs. But when a top fifteen player in the league – a player that just last year signed a $100 million contract extension after being dealt to the Knicks – starts cutting expenses after the first week of missed NBA regular season games, this speaks volumes about the state of players finances, and is a very clear sign that the NBA Players Union is going to have to crack sooner rather than later.
