Amare Stoudemire Is Going Alex Haley On Us

I know.He's a Knick now

New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is set on tracing his Israeli roots and possible Jewish heritage. Stoudemire is on a visit to Israel, says he has Hebrew roots through his mother.

She studied the scriptures and history and she believes she is a Hebrew,” he told The Associated Press on Friday in Jerusalem. “I grew up in a very spiritual home. It’s not about religion, it’s about spirituality for me.”

This is very interesting that Stoudemire might have Jewish lineage. I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. I'm glad that he's tracing his roots, since you don't hear too much about this going on with professional athletes.
