Amare Stoudemire is not feeling the ill effects of the NBA lockout -- TMZ has learned the New York Knicks star just plunked down $3.7 million on a new house!

According to property records, Amare picked up the new home in Southwest Ranches, FL last month. The 14,555 square foot home sits on a 2.35 acre lot, features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a nine-car garage.

And don't worry about Amare wasting his money ... he paid about a million less than the original asking price.

If only the NBA Players' Union was as shrewd at negotiating.

Stupid People Hater    

A house like this would be cool in a way until you realize you have to hire people you don;'t know to go through the entire place cleaning and maintaining it. Kind of creepy.

DUDE BETTER NOT HAVE A MORTGAGE AND OWN THE TITLE FAIR AND CLEAR. DUDE ALSO BETTER HAVE A FEW MIL LYING AROUND FOR MONTHLY PROPERTY EXPENSES AS WELL. OTHERWISE I SMELL A FORECLOSURE SOON ENUFF. THAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THESE SPORTS HACKS. ONCE AGE AND BIOLOGY CATCHES UP WITH THEM, THEIR FINANCIAL MGT SKILLS BARELY CREEP ABOVE A 12 IQ. TRUTH!!

Sickeningly excessive. This kind of greed is what is killing this country.

Asking price is not the same as Fair Market Value. So, just because he got a discount off asking price, does not mean that he's gotten a deal.

If I own a house worth $ 1,000,000 , I can ask $ 2,000,000 for it. If someone offers me $ 1,500,000 to purchase, they did not get a deal, just because they got 25% off asking price.

This just goes to show FLORIDA SUCKS. When you can buy a 15,000+ square footage, with 6/7 bed/bath and NINE GARAGES for a MEASLY 3.7. Good luck EVER getting a dime out of this. Florida needs to fall into the ocean and hopefully come back like it once was. NO ONE WITH A BRAIN MOVES THERE TODAY. The place to go IS HHI, CHARLESTON, SAVANNAH. anywhere but FLORIDA
