Stoudemire returns to Miami -- to study
By Jared Zwerling
Since the Knicks' season has ended, Amare Stoudemire has returned to Miami -- but you won't find him inside American Airlines Arena, where he made the fire extinguisher outside of the visiting locker room famous.
Instead, Stoudemire is enrolled as a summer student at the University of Miami, where he is working toward a bachelor's degree in general studies.
Earlier this week, STAT posted a photo on his Twitter feed of him throwing up "The U" sign, along with the message: "Just enrolled at the University of Miami. Working on continuing my education."
Last summer during the lockout, Stoudemire, who owns an apartment in Miami, took classes at Florida International University, where he participated in LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh's all-star exhibition game.
