Amar’e Stoudemire Does 50 Push-ups To Honor Bet With LeBron James (Video)

To settle his friendly bet with LeBron James regarding the outcome of the Ohio State-Duke match-up on Tuesday night, New York Knicks big man Amar’e Stoudemire ate some crow by doing 50 push-ups. My guess is LeBron took Ohio State and Amar’e took Duke, as the Blue Devils were throttled 85-63 by the Buckeyes. Unless the two, in their boredom, engaged in some kind of Bizarro World wager, which would have been kind of strange.

I suppose now that the lockout is over, these two NBA superstars can go back to wagering obscene amounts of money to satisfy their respective gambling itches. Times were tough during the “nuclear winter” of the NBA, folks, Let us never forget that.
