I don't get this thread at all. The OP is a well put together thread asking why we don't utilize Amare effectively especially in late game situations (effectively by running the occasional play for him).
Then the replies are talking about, bashing Amare, Amare being injured, and not having a pass first PG...
Ok so. This thread was no way bashing Amare. If anything it's bashing our coach for not having a go-to play to get us a good look at the basket in the paint area. But Crazy didn't go so far as to explicitly bash the coach.
Amare may have rolled his ankle but you can see this trend in several of the big games recently, most notably the Orlando game where he basically did not touch the ball in OT.
And about a pass first PG, when BILLUPS was in the game both Billups and TD were running some good plays with Amare, when BILLUPS left the game our offense fell apart. Trillion I know you didn't mention Billups by name but I assume when you say you "hate to beat a dead horse" that he is what you're alluding to. If you can't see that Billups was one of the main reasons our team was up 16 last night and that him leaving the game was the main cause of our decline then I think your bias against Billups is clouding your viewpoint.
