Call me crazy but I think we might be better of with Kmart going into the playoffs. I'd gladly trade Amare's 16-18 points for 10 points along with intense defense and more rebounding. Amare was very efficient off the bench but his consistent lack of rebounding and stopping ability just offset that.

Kenyon Martin first season in Denver 2004-5, K-Mart publically called out coach Karl and Melo's lazyness on the defensive-end. There's more, after Denver got swept in the first round in 2007-8, Camby called out Melo's lazyness, and got traded 2 months later to the Clippers for a 2nd round pick.
Didnt anyone witness what Knicks player got injured in the "Honeynut Cheerios" game? the same injured player who came back the same week Stat came back hoping the two could come off the bench together to backup Tyson & Melo. The same Player owner Dolan personally traded to Denver with our first round pick b/c he didnt show up to one of Dolan's fund rasiers in the offseason? YES Camby!!!
Man what a friggin blow this is ...... sucks, especially because Stoudemire was really coming on and looking good.
Brings me back to when they used the amnesty clause on Billups when he was in the final year of his deal instead of considering to use it on STAT. Im glad we got Chandler, but always seconded guessed using it on Billups when we had a huge contract tied up in a guy with bad knees in STAT.
This fkn sucks!!!

Amare & K-Mart were injury-prone players their first 3 seasons with Melo .... both Amare & K-Mart had great success with defensive SF with great passing-skills in Shawn Marion & Richard Jefferson.
Denver Nuggets fans are laughing right now ....
....and yes the Knicks fell asleep on this one as well. With his expiring 10 dayer, Amundson's agent was busy at work and got him a remainder of the year deal with the Hornets........
