Another day, another non-dollar for NBA players. David Stern could give a damn so they’re off to engage into more silliness on their own accord. Amar’e Stoudemire now has the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru to endorse but he doesn’t have any place to actually wear them. Thanks to good folks at Foot Locker, they managed to work something out so he can still have a spot in the shoe sales market.
His power forward counterpart, Al Harrington, decided to partake in a much more unhealthy lifestyle to pass the time. While out in Las Vegas at their famed Burger Joint, he took on–and failed–The Bugsy Challenge. He was given 45 minutes to eat a six one-third-pound burger patties, six types of cheese (American, cheddar, pepper jack, fresh house-made mozzarella, Swiss and panko-crusted deep-fried provolone), chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, black and tan onion rings, three strips of applewood smoked bacon, three strips of cayenne peppered bacon and a fried egg, all oozing with Burger Joint’s special pink peppercorn aioli.
Forget training camp. Send that guy to fat camp, pronto.
