08:09 AM ET 07.04 | A European vacation of sorts may be in store for Amar'e Stoudemire. [Stoudemire] would consider joining Kobe Bryant's barnstorming tour through China if the NBA lockout extends into the regular season. According to a person close to the Knicks' All-Star power forward, Stoudemire would only play if he can be insured in case of injury. The Knicks signed Stoudemire last summer to five-year, $100-million contract despite being unable to get the contract insured because Stoudemire has a pre-existing knee problem and has had surgery for a detached retina. After Stoudemire signed, he honored the Knicks' request to withdraw from the U.S. national team in order to rest his body for the upcoming season.

Yup. Agreed but this probably isn't anything more than some exhibitions to line their pockets.

Or Sam Cooke....but as for the Story, Amar'e, stay away, and just make sure you're fresh to bring down the Heat if there actually is a season next year.
