Amar'e Stoudemire was kind enough to offer his glasses to a bad ref

Tuesday November 15th, 2016

Amar'e Stoudemire is a newcomer in Israel, so he better be careful not to get off on the wrong foot with the referees.

During a game this week with his new team, Hapoel Jerusalem, STAT was upset with the ref. But rather than lash out at him, Stoudemire offered him an olive branch. Or his glasses.

Those glasses are the only thing protecting Stoudemire from a potentially career-ending eye injury, so he must have really hated the call.
