After losing a fight to a glass case, Stoudemire was sidelined in Game 3 against Miami
One of the most infuriating and infamous events in Knicks history took place during the 2012 postseason.
The Knicks had just lost Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs to the Heat, and were going home to New York down two games to none. But before heading back up north, they had to get to the locker room first.
On the way there from the court, feeling the frustration of a bitter loss and a less-than-stellar performance (a pedestrian 18 points in 41 minutes), Stoudemire took out his aggression on the case protecting a fire extinguisher.
Granted, conventional wisdom says to break the glass in case of emergency, and the Knicks were certainly facing one. Unfortunately, instead of putting out a fire, Stoudemire just tore open his hand and bled a lot.
The damage was so bad that he missed Game 3. He returned with an absurd amount of padding on his hand in Game 4, which the Knicks won. Unfortunately, it was their only victory in the series, and once again, New York was done after one round.
