Man, Amare Stoudemire was fearsome. I sometimes forget how absolutely ferocious he was when attacking the basket. Wish his prime had lasted longer and that we could have kept him healthy.
Maybe we could hire him to give Ayton a blood transfusion.
I think that goes against his faith unless it were to save Ayton's life. But maybe saving our sanity is just as good?
What's his faith?

Judaism.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

I don’t think that’s a thing. Transfusions are allowed if there’s a medical benefit to the recipient. But there’s probably a prohibition from doing a transfusion just for the fun of it.

What we really need is some Karl Malone elbows to the head to see if we can hard reset his approach to the game.

It’s the Jehovahs Witness faith that has teachings against blood transfusions.

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

That is how I understood it. If it saves a life, great. If not, probably not.

The nuance is not that it has to actually save the life. It just has to have a medical purpose. Whether transferring Amare’s aggression into Ayton’s body accomplishes that is a question for the sanhedrin.
