Should Kobe Bryant’s barnstorming tour in China come to fruition, Amar’e Stoudemire reportedly won’t take part in the festivities (despite earlier rumors that he was on board.) From Zags Blog: “Amar’e Stoudemire is unlikely to join Kobe Bryant’s barnstorming tour of China, a source in Stoudemire’s inner circle told SNY.tv. ‘I doubt it happens,’ the source said. ‘Much too complicated. We will see if it’s real and make sense. Hopefully, the owners and players’ association will come to an agreement sooner than later.’”
