In sports, everyone is a winner-some people just win better than others. Like the People of the Book, who, in addition to controlling the media, now control the paint at MSG thanks to Amar'e Stoudemire's newfound faith.
We've long assumed his Twitter account (@amareisreal) was so named to assure fans as to its authenticity. But could it be that all along he just didn't know how to spell "Israel?" The Jews of New York must be psyched. (There are Jews in New York, right?)
Stoudemire says he recently discovered that his mother is Jewish, and is traveling to Israel to learn more about his roots:
We've looked into the question of Stoudemire's faith before, and with the help of a theology student, concluded he likely belongs to an obscure offshoot of the Black Hebrew Israelites. So it's iffy, but as Deadspin's resident Jew (and only one, despite this odd Yahoo Answers question), I say there's always room at this party.
