Amar'e Stoudemire Is Freaking Me Out With These Threes, You Guys

Last season, Amar'e Stoudemire attempted 23 three-point shots. In five of his nine NBA season, he has attempted less than ten three point shots. In the first half of the NBA Christmas tip-off game between the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, he's already drained two three-pointers. And these aren't lucky desperation shots that are just happening to fall. These shots look good.

Seriously, these look like they're being shot by someone who shoots threes for a living. They're positively Dirk-esque. Is this going to be a thing now? Did Amar'e spend the entire lockout working on his three-ball? Also, Carmelo Anthony is playing like a point forward and rebounding like a madman. The lockout has sent us into bizarro world.
