Amare Stoudemire Al Horford

The last time the Knicks and Hawks squared off, punches were thrown during an altercation and after the game, Amar'e Stoudemire ripped Hawks center Al Horford for his antics on the court.

On Tuesday, Stoudemire took another shot at Horford, saying "he don't want to see me."

"I watched him play in Florida [in college] and I've seen him play a few years in Atlanta," Stoudemire said. "We have two different games. We'll see after [tonight]."

Horford fired back on Wednesday and said that nobody is afraid of the Knicks center.

"I don't understand what he means by that, 'He don't want to see me,'" Horford after the Hawks' shootaround. "Like we're supposed to be scared of Stoudemire. Ain't nobody scared of him. We're all grown men, so it's all good."

Horford went on to say that he took Stoudemire's comments "personal."

The Knicks play the Hawks at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
