If one athlete combines sports and fashion, it’s Knicks’ Amare Stoudemire. Off the court, Amare is known for his stylish fashions and business mindset. He is among one of the many athletes who goes the great lengths to show off his style and money. Pointed out by Ballertainment, playing along Carmelo Anthony as a New York Knick in Madison Square Garden has added to his sex appeal, hence bagging ex fling Ciara.
According to the New York Post, Stoudemire will launch his own website, focusing on sports (including fantasy basketball) and fashion, after brokering a very savvy deal with Big Lead Sports.
“This is definitely a great opportunity,” Stoudemire, a popular nine-year NBA veteran, told The Post yesterday.
Stoudemire is expected to try to boost fantasy basketball, which draws far fewer participants than fantasy baseball and football.
The hoops star, who went directly into pro basketball from high school, also says that the site has a strong educational component.
“From fantasy basketball, it’s a great way for you to learn math without you even knowing it,” he said.
Chris Russo, CEO of Big Lead Sports, said he’s excited about kicking off the NBA venture but declined to provide details around the financial aspects of the deal.
I am excited to see what his site will look like and what other features it has to offer. I will keep all of you Stoudemire and Knicks fans updated on this new venture and site coming to us soon.
