FORMER NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire criticized a referee during an Israeli Basketball Premier League game but without using foul words.
A tweet by reporter David Pick showed a video of Stoudemire appearing to be dismayed with a call, and showing his displeasure by offering his goggles to the referee who naturally refused.
Stoudemire, who use goggles since an eye injury he sustained in the NBA, appeared to have escaped ejection for his action, based on the video.

Stoudemire, who played for various NBA teams including the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, and the Miami Heat, is playing for Hapoel Jerusalem, a team that he also co-owns. The team recently won the Israeli Basketball League Cup.
