Report: Amar’e Stoudemire Unlikely to Play in China Barnstorming Tour

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.’”

    It would be nice to see a few diff all star teams play each other

    I hope Amare doesn’t play. I’m all for him travelling with this team and acting as an amabassador for the game, but his contract is not insured and I don’t want to see him get injured. Especially with his knee and eye histories and the back injury from the playoffs still lingering. Take it easy big fella and get rested up for next season (whenever it may be).
