Awkward Video: Hamish Bowles Plays Basketball With Knicks' Star Amar'e Stoudemire

Vogue's European Editor At Large, Hamish Bowles, is famed for his cultured British accent, exquisitely tailored suits, and quick wit, but apparently he also really knows his way around balls—basketballs that is. Well, kinda. In Vogue's April Issue, Bowles wrote an article detailing his experience shooting hoops with Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire (yes, that's the one who wants to start his own fashion line), complete with grueling training regimes and photographs by Norma Jean Ray. While it's weird and funny (and kind of touching) reading the effete Bowles' take on dribbling with the 7-foot-tall player, watching the two spar on court is all sorts of awkward. We have to give him props for trying though! Check out the video below and tell us what you think!
