You go to New York for the opportunities.
That’s’ why Amar’e Stoudemire signed there. Well, that and the $99 million. But also the opportunities — like the opportunity to be seen as the savior who helped turn around a struggling franchise in a basketball-crazy city.
Or the opportunity to branch out into the world of fashion.
Which is exactly what Stoudemire will be doing with a new Web site he will help launch, according to the New York Post.
The Knicks’ 6’10” power forward has struck a deal to launch his own Web site at Big Lead Sports.com, The Post has learned. The 28-year-old all-star will focus his site on sports and fashion.
Stoudemire is expected to provide exclusive content for Big Lead, which was formed as a sports blog nearly five years ago, in exchange for a revenue-sharing agreement and small equity stake in the company.
Stoudemire’s new site also will have an educational component, using things like fantasy basketball to help teach math. Word problems like: If Amar’e was taking 20 shots a game, then Carmelo Anthony came along and took away half of Amar’e shots, how many would he have left?
