Amare unveils new Knicks jersey on 'Live!'
By Jared Zwerling
Amare Stoudemire appeared on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" Wednesday morning to unveil the new Knicks jersey.
Click here to check out a video clip of the TV appearance, in which Stoudemire and Michael Strahan, the show's co-host, go head-to-head in a Pop-A-Shot contest.
The biggest changes appear to be a brighter orange color on the "New York" on the front, and a new silver outline around the lettering and near the collar and shoulder areas, replacing a black color. This falls right in line with the change in the Knicks logo from 2011, which now features a silver shadow under "Knicks," instead of black.
On Thursday, Stoudemire will join Tyson Chandler to showcase the jersey at the Hugo Boss showroom in New York City. (The fashion brand is a Madison Square Garden sponsor.)
