Amar'e Stoudemire seems to be having a good time coaching the Canadian Maccabiah team in Israel this summer. According to an interview his agent gave New York Magazine, the Knicks' power forward is looking to make it more official with the country. "He's getting citizenship," Happy Walters told the magazine. "He applied, and he's there now."

In June, Stoudemire bought a share of an Israeli basketball team.
