Surprise, surprise. On the heels of the big 116-99 win against the Toronto Raptors tonight after the fifth of the candles on the menorah burned out, we bring you my newest favorite Jewish player in the NBA – NY Knicks’ star forward Amar’e Stoudemire.
Not much really needs to be said about Amar’e – NBA All Star several years, NBA Rookie of the Year in 2003, in a serious running for MVP of this year, and ever since it came out this summer that he is in fact Jewish (and took a trip to Israel), I knew I had to include him in the Hanukkah Hunks at the end of the year. Come on, you know you love him!
Plus, look how adorable he is with Amar’e Jr!
How seasonally appropriate – he even makes Santa happy. Can’t help but have much amore for Amar’e! (yes, I just said that – leave me alone, it’s midnight)
