"This Isn't Goodbye."

Last week Amar'e Stoudemire officially announced his retirement from the NBA, after signing a one-day contract with the New York Knicks so that he could retire as a member of the Knickerbockers.

However, STAT feels like he still has some juice in those old legs and has plans to continue playing professionally in Jerusalem. Stoudemire announced his latest career move in an article published on The Player's Tribune.

In the piece, titled "This Isn't Goodbye," Amar'e reflects on his early life in Orlando, his career with the Knicks, and his rise to superstardom as a member of the Phoenix Suns before revealing his next move to play for Hapoel Jerusalem, one of the top basketball clubs in Europe.

"The Scripture speaks about Jerusalem as a holy place, and I can feel that whenever I’m in the city. This is a chance for me to be a better husband and a better father, to help me lead my family into righteousness. The opportunity to play there, and grow as a player and person, is a blessing."
