Amare Stoudemire Invited to Play For Israel’s Basketball Team


Amare is Jewish or something, I don’t remember exactly how it happen, but he takes it very seriously. He is over in Jerusalem talking to the president and if the Knicks don’t want him, they do.

The president of Israel has invited New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire to play for the country’s national basketball team because of his ties to Judaism.

Shimon Peres met with Stoudemire on Thursday to discuss the player’s charity efforts. Stoudemire, who says he has “Hebrew roots,” has traveled to Israel before and Peres urged him to help the national team.
