Amar’e Stoudemire, professional basketball player, author, actor and art collector




The former NBA All-Star is now a part-owner and player for Hapoel Jerusalem Basketball Club in the Israeli Basketball Premier League. In addition to his basketball career, Stoudemire uses his art curating company, The Melech Collection, and the Amar’e and Alexis Stoudemire Foundation to educate children and raise money for art schools and children’s activity centers. Stoudemire has TV and film credits as an actor in movies such as Entourage and Trainwreck. He has also written children’s books and regularly attends fashion week events around the world.
