New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire trumpeted his love for Judaism on Tuesday night in an interview on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, asserting that he loves eating “clean” kosher food.

During a guest appearance on the show, the athlete, 31, was asked by a caller what he likes most about his Jewish identity. The six-time NBA All-Star responded, “just eating clean… eating a kosher, clean diet.” WWHL host Andy Cohen responded in jest, “you would be fun to break the fast with.”

“I cannot tell you how thrilling it is to have a Jewish athlete in the clubhouse. There are so few of them,” Cohen, who is also Jewish, told Stoudemire.

The duo, along with fellow WWHL guest, Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwill, then played a a few rounds of “In the Knick of Time” in which Stoudemire and Radziwell took turns trying to get Cohen to correctly identify famous Jewish people, including Scarlett Johansson, James Franco and Barbara Streisand.
