Amar'e Stoudemire ‘Thinks’ He'll Spurn Overseas Offers, Stay In United States

While the whole "NBA Players going overseas during the NBA lockout" saga has unfolded, Amar'e Stoudemire has been at the center of the discussion. His name kept popping up over that whole Chinese barnstorming tour idea and he even floated the idea of playing in Israel over Twitter, asking fans "who's with me?" just a few days ago.

Today, Amar'e decided to pull back and pledge his allegiance to America. Or at least New York.

It's really important to Amar'e that you're with him, regardless of his decision.

Assuming Amar'e thinks Israel is in Europe, we can assume that offer is off the table as well.

Of course, if Stoudemire was serious about playing overseas, it could be that he couldn't find anyone willing to insure his NBA contract in case of injury overseas. The injury-prone Knick could be in big trouble if he were to find himself hurt in that situation.
