    im not joking guys but Zach Randolph took over last year in the playoffs with the Grizzlies with no rudy gay

    I dont think he will ever leave Memphis, he loves it there.

    If Amare doesnt pick it up by palayoff time then we have to seriously consider trading him. He is becoming useless and taking away minutes from guys like Novak and Jeffries that are playing better offense,defense and rebounding better than Amare.

    Amare doesnt fit at all anymore.

    He has to play with Novak or he gets doubled down low. Amare needs to play with an outside shooter to create space in the paint because he simply cant beat 2 guys down low anymore like he could last year.

    His shot is aweful and I know handful of PF better right now that would fit.

    Since we dont need his scoring, we need better defense and rebounding.

    My picks are

    Pau Gasol(knocks down the open shot and is a crafty player and he is taller than amare good compliment with Tyson.)
    David Lee(his defense is too soft though)
    Serge Ibaka(I would cream my pants if we had him with Tyson down low and he can hit the mid range shot unlike Amare)
    Josh Smith(He wants out of Atlanta and his is an athletic freak who can play defense and rebound)
    Andrea Bargnani(deadly offensive big man, just has to stay on the floor)

    There you go guys, everyone else isn't worth Amare nor will another team trade for him....Gasol,Lee,Smith have all been on the trade watch and they can be a better fit than Amare right now because even if they lack one area atleast they excel at other areas where Amare is lacking in every category Offense,defense and rebounding like a woman.

    we should trade Amare for some 1st round picks and cash considerations so we can use him for a brighter future with Lin, Melo, and Tyson

    Amare for 2 1st round picks...plus cash and a 2nd round? Think about it...we have barely any picks for the future

    How can a deal like that get made though? I doubt there's any teams with $20 million cap space who want to give us 2 future first rounders.

    Where not trading STAT, first off, we can't, second, we should be trying to fix him, instead of trading him.He's in his 20's, not 30's, calm down people.A few tweeks, here and there, and he'll be fine.

    Stop deep throating Amare geez, why don't you marry the guy at this point? How many excuses are you gonna come up with for that back-less broken kneed pile of rubble? The guy is 30 years old!!!!!

    No big man comes back to there prime at 30 years old. He has no where to go but down. He is a cancer to what could be a championship team and we NEED to trade him before he becomes Eddy Curry part 2, his value has no where to go but down.

    Pacer, Nets, and Rockets, have alot of cap room and Dallas will have cap room next year for a max player plus more so it's not like trading Amare for mainly picks and a player is unrealistic.

    If we wanted to we could trade Amare for our future.

    I would rather get a player back.

    We'd be lucky to get 2 second round picks with the way Stat is playing lately. The dude has been terrible this season. If you don't see it than you don't know basketball. Dude is like a tree on defense and has bricks for hands on offense. The only time his feet leave the ground is when he's getting blocked in the low post and when he's WIDE OPEN dunking. Dude is garbage.

    I know how you feel and I agree but Amare is still coveted by many teams. He was a force in Phoenix and teams remember that and they remember how good he was last year and maybe he is just having a bad year under a terrible coach so I can easily see a team give up something decent for him.

    The question is who and why.

    I hear ya man. I honestly think we'd at least split our last 6 games if Stat wasn't in the lineup. Also, I really don't think ANY team in the league wants to take a chance on him with his bad knees and outrageous contract. I hope to God that team's will still want him. The real question is would Dolan trade one of his moneymakers away to make the team better? Probably not. Ugh I'm so frustrated with this team, I have a hard time even watching the games anymore without wanting to break the TV.
