I'm thinking that Amare said something very offensive about Leonardo DiCaprio to monosylab1k in order to piss him off so bad. That is the only reason I can think of for him to have such a vendetta against Amare.
I feel, at this point in the thread, the people speaking of Amare like he's a dominant post force should consider that I am not 6' tall and I could probably average 18-20+ PPG at the Power Forward position with Nash as my Point Guard.
As a side bonus, I'd probably play better defense than Amare. Trade him while you can.
And YES, his IQ DOES matter. How can you say it doesn't? Bball IQ is irreplaceable. Amare has zilch. He doesn't know when to turn it on, and he basically lives to blow teams out in the regular season. No self-control, no willingness to play hard defense for a full 48... exactly what does this guy do besides dunk the ball and grab a few rebounds (which will decline drastically as his knees go) that makes you all worship him as one of the best bigs in the league?
The Spurs just showcased why you can't have players who don't play D. So did the Warriors in their rout of the Mavs. It just doesn't work. Boozer was a dominant force in the playoffs until the Spurs put pressure on him -- then he was nowhere to be seen.
Amare needs to completely change his game to even be considered a great post player.
For some reazon people in this thread aren not considering that Garnett in 2 yrs will be an old Peace of crap,while Amare will probably be in his prime,winning the MVP of the year.
If Amare had developmental problems, the Suns wouldn't hesitate in doing this deal with KG.
Amare and KG would = domination... in fact the T-Wolves should be forced to make this trade as a part of the Joe Smith punishment.
“It’s hard for me to congratulate somebody after you just lose to them,” James said. “I’m a winner. It’s not being a poor sport or anything like that. If somebody beats you up, you’re not going to congratulate them. That doesn’t make sense to me. I’m a competitor. That’s what I do. It doesn’t make sense for me to go over and shake somebody’s hand.”
he had to email it to howard could not tell someone in person that
in fact he quotes D'antoni on alot of those instances where Stoudemire's "drive to succeed" is questioned.
That´s something that the spurs and Mavs are good at,and At the end of the day,eather brake it or make it.
My attorney has "$450 per hour" tattooed on his neck. What's the diff?

As far as basketball goes, Amare lacks no motivation.
