Amare Stoudemire to be invited by the President of Israel
July 19 , 2013
Shimon Peres has invited Amare Stoudemire to play national basketball. The reason behind this invite was the NBA ALL-star's ties to Judaism. Given his major ties with the Israeli basketball, Peres asked Stoudemire to help the national team after meeting with him on Thursday.
Stoudemire has not played for the national team since the year of 2007 and won a bronze medal with the United States at the Olympics in 2004.
