Amare Stoudemire's mother arrested for failing to have ignition interlock device

53795177

When it comes to trash talking, the Lakers and their fans will have plenty of material Wednesday night for Game 2 to throw at Phoenix forward Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire simply chalked up Odom's 19 points and playoff career-high 19 rebounds in the Lakers' Game 1 128-107 victory over Phoenix as simply a "lucky game." He fired fighting words over to Odom, despite constantly getting burned on defense. And Stoudemire's mom, The Arizona Republic has reported, was arrested Saturday for failing to have the ignition interlock device on her car. The Arizona Republic's Ofelia Madrid writes that "Carrie Stoudemire's Lincoln Navigator was straddling two lanes eastbound Shea Boulevard at about 60 mph, police said. Stoudemire told the officer that she wasn't aware that she needed to have an ignition interlock device on all of her vehicles and that the Navigator was rented." 

The report then mentions that Carrie Stoudemire refused to take a field sobriety test, was charged with speeding, operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device and failure to drive in a single lane and has had various incidents involving law enforcement, ranging from drug possession to prostitution.

In other news... Delonte West...

Why all the drama?

I felt it was bad news to bring in Snaq, and they did. I felt it was bad news to trade Matrix & Diaw instead of Stat - but they did that too (reason was not talent, but Stat is a locker room cancer)

And now the love-him/hate-him Derek Fisher is exposing Steve Nash for the over rated player that is and has always been. Nash is a guy that can pass and shoot (sounds pretty solid), except he can't play D and he can't penetrate. Williams is better. Westbrook is better. Rondo is better.

And, OMG I'm about to say it.... Derek Fisher is better.

While we are waiting for the game to start.......

Its time again for one of Fatty's Amazing Predictions!

Lebron will accept the Clippers offer and come to LA.

To do this, the Clippers will offer the max, plus some guaranteed measures and conditions.

1. Lebron gets to choose the new Clippers coach
2. The Clippers will agree to change their to name to "The Lebrons"
3. Gloria, his mom, will become the new 'Head Cheerleader'
4. Lebron will secretly be given 100% ownership of the team when he retires.
5. Sterling must name him as his sole heir upon his death
6. The Staples Center logo on the roof will be replaced by a giant, "The King Plays Here"
7. Lebron will be promised starring roles in movies, including the new "Shazzaam!" remake.
8. The Clippers must buy Delonte West's contract and ship him off to the Siberian Huskies of the Russian Federated League.
9. All the lights will be turned off during the games with a lone spot light following all of Lebron's moves everywhere he goes.

When this happens in July, know that this amazing prediction, so amazing that even the National Enquirer will not print this, was stated first on the LA Times Lakers blog.

DOH!

Amare and LeBron should hang out.

They'd have a lot to talk about.

NBA: Where Crazy Moms Embarass Their Sons Happens!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

MM

I'm disappointed that you'd stoop to a headline like this. You'll say it's "news", but you have the power to choose... and you've misused it.

Art-FL Lakers Fan,

I`m aware of those two Phoenix wins. I watched both games.

That`s why I`m rooting for LA in the WCF...strictly for practical purposes, not nostalgic ones.

Oh man, if all Lakers fans where as big A-holes as Celtic fans there would be many and I do mean MANY a derogatory chant comming from the crowd at Staples tonight thanks to this story.

On a side note...talk about having some material to get under someone's skin on the court.

Amare: You got lucky last game punk!!

Lamar: I did? How lucky? Finding 2 bucks on the street lucky? Or finding 2 bucks on the street then paying your mom for her services lucky??

Marky Mark,

"I'm disappointed that you'd stoop to a headline like this."

I'm not!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

The Infamous El Guapo,

"Lamar: I did? How lucky? Finding 2 bucks on the street lucky? Or finding 2 bucks on the street then paying your mom for her services lucky??"

I my God, I burst out laughing.

The crazy thing is that it COULD happen!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

By the way, I'm watching MSNBC right now and Miss USA is really, REALLY HOT!

Why do I feel like people in the Middle East would be killing each other a lot less if they let women wear mini-skirts and had beauty contests in which they celebrated female beauty and sexuality?

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

RED`S LOVE CHILD,

Admit it. You'd rather hang out with Lakeraholics than Bawston Celtics fans.

Just admit it... because we all know it's true.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!!

welcome to Mark Medina's Tabloid moment of the day.

did she had a Game Plan?
was she speeding to get more Touches?
was she driving Inside or Outside the lane?

looks like it was not her LUCKY day. poor Amare (in some latin languages sounds like SOUR), no luck in the lane, no luck outside of lane

- What the heck is an ignition interlock device? Sounds like a bizarre sex toy.

- I feel bad for Amare, and I'm also wondering why this story even made the "sports" news. Politics and crazy mamas should not be in sporting news (unless the mama's affair with a teammate has a direct impact on a team's performance, as well as the future of a franchise and the NBA. i.e. Lebron's mom).

- I think more than anything, Lamar and Artest are finally getting healthy. I expect a consistent Lamar for the rest of the playoffs, as well as better outside shooting from Artest.

getting ahead of myself but how EPIC would Lakers-Celtics be in the FINALS.


Just the motivation we need to win it all! AH I haven't been this excited this year for anything! Let's hope it happens.


And lets get it tonight boys, the sun is shining in LA, but that's only cause the Lakers will be one step closer to the Finals today:)


btw...7 wins in a ROW, and no one seems to be talking about that? We've won 9 out of 11 games in the playoffs, that's GREAT.

Jon K

I think Amare's a jerk, but he's not responsible for his mother's actions, and this is a better blog.. including you.. than to be dragging this stuff up... like we all don't have skeletons we're praying no one prints...

Jon K,

I am very disappointed in Magic Johnson's commentary as well. Like others, I've always felt that Magic viewed Kobe as a threat to his legacy.
There seems to be an odd overabundance of joy and excitement when he makes comments such as "Boston will win the championship, or Lebron is the greatest". Can you imagine Worthy, Cooper, Norm, Rambis, West, Kareem, or West making these comments with such glee and enthusiasm?

Players are fair game, but players families are off limits unless they want to be in the news and noticed, like Kobe's wife with the T Shirt.

In the story, Amare got into a little trouble by coming to the scene and was rebuked by the police for getting her more upset. That part of it is newsworthy, because if it had escalated, he could be in trouble with the law and the NBA.

But the story as a whole is quite sad with his mother being in trouble so much. Its amazing how well Amare has done with such a troubled family past. He should be commended for that.

Well, Amare was at the scene as well. That is just one reason why this is news and fair game.

Since we're talkin Boston, I think the Lakers will beat Boston in 7.
Still, aside from Bynum's health, there are some serious concerns:

- Fish will have to guard either Ray Allen or Rondo. Sorry to say, but one of those guys is going off. Fish has been playing well these playoffs, but Rondo and Allen are the worst type of matchups for Fish. Fish does not have the speed to chase Ray around all game, and I don't even want to think about Fish guarding Rondo.

- Rasheed has adapted to the Boston bully mentality, and he, along with Perkins and KG, will do everything in their power to bully, intimidate and bruise up Pau. When they foul, they are going to foul HARD. Pau will have to meet these bullies head on without backing down. If he wants to shed the soft label, this will be his chance.

- Artest should do a fine job on Paula, but a little known fact - Paula is one of biggest floppers in the league. When he drives and he feels a tiny bit of contact, he will flail his arms like he got shot, or will do that nasty looking ostrich-like head jerk, and these refs give him the whistle every frickin time. Let's hope the refs let them play.

I hope Laker fans in attendance at Staples tonight as well as bloggers on this site resist the urge to bash or ridicule Mrs. Stoudemire. Obviously, the woman has some serious issues and needs help.

Amare's mom, not so lucky.

Mrs. Stoudamire was pulled over after by Arizona officials who had reasonable suspicion that she was illegal...illegaly plastered while driving that is.

You have to be a real alcoholic to require an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. Uh, Amar'e bruh, that explains a whole lot. Now shut your cotton pickin' pie hole and play.

Sorry bronxlakerfan...too late...my bad!! :-)

The studder-mires embarass themselves whole heartedly!!! LMAO!!! I'd hate to be sportin' a studdermire jersey if I was a Phx Scum fan! LMAO again...! GO LAKERS!

Whew, is this article for real?
Poor Studabaker, I almost feel sorry for him, (but not quite).

Geesh, this is beginning to sound like a dirt digging, mud slinging political campaign.
If the game gets physical and tempers start flaring, I wonder who will be the first to go with, yo momma... and watch studman lose it and get ejected.

LAKER TRUTH

Rasheed is also parking on the 3 point line and lately is hitting the shots. some with the clock winding down. he is no jeff green or the chandler guy. that always takes a tall defender out of the paint.

JON K... “Amare and LeBron should hang out. They'd have a lot to talk about.”
Too funny, Jon. LOL! Even better, they ought to double date with their moms.
As for MM stooping too low, Amare is a jerk and deserves to be treated like one.
You do have to feel a little sorry for both LeBron and Amare since we don’t get to
choose our mothers. Give them credit for not turning their backs on them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FATTY... Man, it is grand having you back. The laugh scale on the blog just went way up.
I’m waiting for your screenplay for the next Most Valuable Puppets commercial...

TOM

ECJ....

No worries! I just think stuff like that is off limits. But that's just me. I've always known this blog and MOST of its participants, such as yourself, to exude class and a strong sense of fair play.

Most of the time...but we can take a dig at a trash talking guy anyday. More of a jab at Amar'e than anything else.

" LOL! Even better, they ought to double date with their moms."

Laker Tom,

That's really bad.
But it sure is funny.
Witty place here sometimes.

Or are Los Suns against the new law?
Hard to keep up.

MM
So even if you defend this post today for journalistic reasons (?), read your posters comments. It has brought out the worst in most (fatty clearly excluded).
There's a difference in being sports rivals and an ugly lynch mob (El Guapo). You bear some responsibility in "steering" the conversation in a better direction.

At last, someone getting their facts right

http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angeles/columns/story?id=5195953

Probably should clean this mess up ourselves. I would hate to be responsible for my parents actions and wouldn't want them to be responsible for mine. As adults we are responsible for our decisions, be them good or bad. Go Lakeshow!

It doesn't seem to help this country much.

Posted by: Art - FL Lakers Fan | May 19, 2010 at 01:10 PM

LMAO, it is witty, like you said though sometimes.

Mark G,

Yes.
When I read the blog I spend about 1/3 the time smiling or laughing,
1/3 the time nodding in agreement and 1/3 the time cringing or trying to figure out what in the world is this persons point and why are they on a Lakers blog.
The mix may change a bit from time to time.

"You do have to feel a little sorry for both LeBron and Amare since we don’t get to
choose our mothers."
==============

Actually Tom, there is a school of thought that could debate that point.
But surely this isn't the place to discuss that type of topic.

Guys I deleted several comments that I think crossed over the line. There shouldn't be any personal attacks in the blog. I posted this as an item because it is news.

MM

I hope Lamar or any other Laker doesn't use this to trash talk. As far as I know, none of the current Lakers really trash talk. I like it that way. Do your talking with your play on the court!

Mark post whatever you want. These same naysayers would find it delightful if it was Kobes Mom. Truth is players are offsprings of their parents and the apple does not fall far from the tree.

Why blog administrator enables a subject as rude and insulting loudmouth as a player ouchhhh: Pau Gasol not know? Why, however, to protect this shameless Ouchhhh of criticism from others? Why people do not ask ocuhhhh blocking until something gives states education and objectivity? Those who protect these subjects are of the same countenance ...

Why are you guys talking about my momma? I'm gonna drop 50 on you tonight, and Lamar, let's say Chloe will be on the court tonight instead!

Ouchhhhhhh is the result of bad U.S. educational system.

I hope this year, and I'm sorry that I have always been a fan of the lakers Lakers lost against the Celtics do not deserve so bright you have players like Kobe and Pau, Lamar Odon.

They should have tattooed band jumping and mascachicles stupid as I likes this painful character: Ouchhhhhhh.

You have a bad taste about the sport and personal elegance.

I feel bad for Stoudemire. Lets not bring family related stuff up for discussion. we, laker fans, are way better than that.

This kind of post only bring bad things. I feel sorry for him, he was owned and couldn't keep his mouth shut...But then, see where he came from.....drugs, prostitution?

It's sad...

LAKER TRUTH,

"Can you imagine Worthy, Cooper, Norm, Rambis, West, Kareem, or West making these comments with such glee and enthusiasm?"

Ummm... actually, no. I cannot. It's weird.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

Escarpia,

Huh?

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!
