Stoudemire was known for his 14-year NBA career with the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. He also had stints in Israel, China and the 3-on-3 league known as BIG3.

Stoudemire was prominent for winning the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2003 and his partnership with Steve Nash that resulted in the Suns reaching the Western Conference Finals in 2005, 2006 and 2010.
