NBA All-Star In peta2′s Latest “Ink, Not Mink” Ad
If you follow the NBA, like, at all, you’ve been watching the resurgence of the Phoenix Suns this season with a combination of awe & excitement. They haven’t lost at home, they haven’t scored less than 100 points in any of their 17 games, and they won a “statement game” against Boston on the road … and right in the thick of it, as always, is Amar’e Stoudamire, the long-limbed power forward who’s seen more dimes from Steve Nash than a parking meter outside the US Airways Center. Suns fans may love Amar’e for his big stat lines, but here at peta2, we love him even more for his big heart—the perennial NBA all-star has become the latest celebrity to speak out against the cruel fur industry as a part of peta2′s Ink, Not Mink campaign. Check out his two different ads below:
In an exclusive Q&A with peta2, Amar’e sat down with us to share some of his thoughts on helping animals. He talked to us about his love for his dog, Spud, is the foundation for his compassion for all animals, including those raised and killed, in his own words, “just for a fashion.” Check out the Q&A below!
I’ve always felt that Amar’e has the best tattoos in the NBA, hands down, so we were thrilled to get him involved with our Ink, Not Mink campaign. My personal runner-up for best NBA tattoos is Rasheed Wallace (the fact that he’s now playing for my beloved Celtics doesn’t hurt, either), so he gets my vote for the next NBA superstar who I want to see appear in the campaign. Who gets yours? Tell me in the comments below.
