Amare Stoudemire's Billboard Debuts in Times Square



    NBCNewYork talks to the Knicks newest superstar as his billboard is unveiled in Times Square. (Published Thursday, Aug. 19, 2010)

    He's the first Knicks superstar in a number of years. He's a five time all-star. He just signed a five year, 100 million dollar contract. He's Amar'e Stoudemire.

    Today, we rode an old-fashioned double-decker bus with the 6'11 center, who had his own giant-sized billboard unveiled in Times Square. The 12 and under AAU basketball team from the Milbank Community Center, who are benefactors of MSG's Garden of Dreams Foundation -- joined Amar'e for a tour through the streets of Manhattan.

    I talked to Amar'e about sensing the pulse of the city; the responsibility that comes with signing a 100 million dollar contract -- and if he hopes Carmelo Anthony will join him in a Knicks uniform!
