Adonal Foyle and Amar’e Stoudemire are about as opposite as two 6’10” basketball players can be. Stoudemire claims to be a Renaissance Man in his Twitter bio, but Foyle actually is as evidenced by his acting and intelligence. Stoudemire was a steal with the ninth pick in the 2002 Draft and is a perennial All-Star. Foyle was a bust with the eighth pick in the 1997 Draft, one spot ahead of Tracy McGrady. Foyle never averaged more than 5.9 points, but still made more than $63 million. He must have negotiated his contracts himself to get that much dough for doing so little on the court. Stoudemire might grind harder, but Foyle grinded smarter.
