I was at the game early last night and saw he and Herb working on a 10-12 ft jumper and it looked good (so did Balkman's)
If he could add this to his repitore (not primary means of attack like Dantoni likes to do to his Big Men) then this would be huge for us
If teams can't pack the lanes this brings Amare's scoring back up to 21 plus each night easily.
It has been said that Amare is forcing his shot and forcing drives as well as "losing his explosiveness", all smoking mirrors!!!!!
Amare is doing the same exact thing he was doing this time last year and at the same level, what has happened is that teams are playing up on the jumper daring him to drive, when he does he's getting blocked, charging or missing the shot due to the D or occasionally hitting finishing which just shows his talent level!
If Tyson can force his man even just a couple feet out the paint, that will make us that more affective!
Last year during Stat's epic run of 30 plus he was doing it with Wilson,Shawne Williams and Gallo on the wing...this just spaced the floor too much for teams to try to double Amare effectively!
Now no way Tyson gets that sort of range....but it illustrates what a decent shooter does for Amare, plus it would open the lanes for drives from Feilds and Melo
