So what is Knicks star and Big Lead Sports content provider Amar’e Stoudemire up to in China these days? Well, in a dispatch last night, he wrote that he’d had a private dinner with some businessmen and “two of the top ranking generals in the Chinese army.” He’s also visited the Forbidden City, and seems to have especially loved the Great Wall. And what isn’t he doing? Eating scorpions, sea horses, or silk worms. (Writes Stoudemire: “I was starving, but there was no way I was messing with these.“) And thus concludes today’s edition of “How your New York Knicks are spending the summer.” See also: Carmelo films an episode of Law and Order: SVU, Amar’e plans a training camp, and Jorts gets all heroic in Kentucky.
