1) Have you heard that Amare Stoudemire back! Stat is here once again to pay for Hapoel Jerusalem and the fans are thrilled! How did his return come about and what will he offer to the capital city Reds? Check out The Sports Rabbi’s weekly Jerusalem Post column “Shalom Jerusalem, I’m back!”
2) Speaking of Hapoel Jerusalem, the Reds held a fantastic clinic in Jerusalem on Friday geared for tourists and Israeli Anglos. Tamir Goodman, “The Jewish Jordan” was on hand to run the practice together with assistant coach Ryan Pannone and players James Feldeine, Josh Owens, De’sean Butler and Jo Lual Acuil. Of course Amare Stoudemire was smiling from ear to ear signing autographs and taking pictures after just landing yesterday back in Jerusalem. A fun time was had by all!
3) The Sports Rabbi welcomes on board a very special guest in Adrian Banks who is now playing in Brindisi Italy after starring for Hapoel Tel Aviv over the past two seasons winning the 6th Man Award last year for the Reds. Also on tap is Darnell Dickson from the Daily Herald in Provost, Utah who talks to me all about Hapoel Eilat’s budding star Elijah Bryant while Gene Frenette of the Florida Times Union out of Jacksonville discusses Hapoel Tel Aviv’s new point guard Dallas Moore.
