I do think that Amare would be a good "share-er" in the system, he loves the spotlight, which is why he is in NY. But he wants Carmelo here. He wants a title, and I think he knows that to attain it we are going to add significant pieces (but not at the cost of losing all the assets we have). If anything, I think that most people will admit that if you are not in the D'Antoni-doghouse (see: Robinson, Nate and Hill, Jordan), he is the best players coach. Amare, Carmelo and whomever of the 3 Fields, Gallo, Chandler are left never (excuse the pun) will even SNIFF the doghouse. Say what you want about D'Antoni, he dealt with personalities and stars on Team USA, he knows how to deal with big-time players, something that not everyone (see: Brown, Mike and Spoelstra, Eric (early season)) can do. If we get Carmelo, I don't see many people being able to deal with star power as much as I think D'Antoni can.
He's one of the best players in the league, but you'd never make the case that he's the best. He's one of the most valuable players in the league, but you'd never say he's most valuable. We don't take him for granted, and we don't think he's overrated. He's Dwight Howard: the best center since Shaq, a franchise player for a fringe contender, someone who's very very very very very very good but not quite great. And that's why he's properly rated.
