We thought we were done laughing our faces off at Hamish Bowles‘ story about basketball player Amar’e Stoudemire, but we were sorely mistaken. The behind-the-scenes video from Bowles’ game of one-on-one (and contingent photoshoot) with the New York Knicks forward is as hilarious as the profile in the the April issue of Vogue.
But as funny as it is to watch Bowles, who admits that he doesn’t know the first thing about sports, attempt to play ball with a 9-year veteran of the professional league, it’s also quite endearing. You get the sense that the two men really admire each other. Stoudemire clearly respects Bowles’ fashion cred and can’t say enough good things about how hard Bowles tries on the court. Meanwhile, Bowles digs Stoudemire’s personal style and athleticism.
And then Stoudemire snatches the ball from Bowles and it’s back to laughing. Watch:
