NBA Star Amar’e Stoudemire’s Brooklyn Pesach

Former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire has relocated to Brooklyn to help coach the Nets, but that’s not stopping him from having a traditional Pesach at home with his children. Between a rigorous schedule of Gemara study, prayer and attending player practices and games, Stoudemire’s days are full, with Passover preparations notwithstanding. He says, “I think the notion of just leaving Mitzrayim speaks to me. It allows you to understand, like, whenever you decide to change as a person and become a better person, it’s OK to change and it’s OK not to look back, and if you embrace that change and move forward, then you go to your promised land.” Read more here.

    He never went to college, so could not be a final four MVP. 😉
