Rookie Amar’e Stoudemire Posterizes Michael Olowokandi in 2002-03 Season (Video)

Editor’s note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.


Amar’e Stoudemire has been one of the most dominant forwards in the league since his rookie year in the 2002-03 season. During his rookie year with the Phoenix Suns, he showed his ability to play above the rim.

After setting a pick, Stoudemire rolls into the paint, gets the pass and slams over veteran Michael Olowokandi.

Stoudemire would compete in the NBA Dunk Contest that season, and finish in third place.

Check out the dunk below.
