Amar’e Stoudemire offers his glasses to referee in Israeli league game


If he did this in the NBA, we’d be writing about how big a fine he’s about to get

But this happened in the Israeli league, so we’ll just have a laugh and not worry about the consequences. Lord knows he’s not.

For those that don’t know, former All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire is now playing for Hapoel Jerusalem of the Israeli Basketball Premier League. And if you think NBA officials are bad, watch some international basketball sometime. It’s painful.

Stoudemire’s response was savage — he offered the referee his goggles. Here is the video, via David Pick.

Well played.
