    Anyone believing this stuff, or is it more stuff the fans want to hear that Amare is saying.

    first he's talking about sacrifices, now he promises to play like his old self

    in the second article he stated

    "it's definitely a rhythm thing, so now i feel great"

    Does it really take until after the All-star weekend for you to get back in rhythm.

    he'll be fine this second half everything comes together. ive been patient and thats what its about with this team. were on the cusp. Stat has started to show some live getting that pep back and shooting better from the field. so he's getting more confortable. all in time.

    He's just saying what he thinks everyone wants to hear. What's drastically changed between when he was chillin on the beach and today? I'm actually offended by his comment as a true Knicks fan. You would have never heard some of the old Knicks say that. Play hard out the gate man. Why wait till now to play like your "old self"?? That's wack.

    Sorry but I call bull****.

    I think he'll get better but not back to his 'old self". The guy is getting outplayed by Josh Harrelson and Jared Jeffries. If it wasn't for his name he'd be coming off the bench.

    How far we go will be determined by how JR Smith plays, if Jared can keep up the amazing D, if Tyson can continue to carry us on D, If Lin can keep playing well, and how quickly Melo can get back to being Melo.

    I expect nothing from Amare because this season I've seen nothing from Amare.

    blah, blah, blah.


    Maybe hes trying to lose some weight with all the calories he is burning by yapping it up.

    I am going to scream next time you barrol into the defense like jared jeffries. Atleast jeffries gets a shot off even though it doesnt hit the basket. Amare, you get your ass BLOCKED......but hell, as long as you get your one highlight dunk of the night, its all good......i guess.

    If he feels great and believes he can just turn it on when the games mean more, why not tomorrow?

    His struggles aren't from a lack of practice.

    When you're a pick and roll player who plays without a point guard who has to endure the death of your older brother?

    Yeah, I could see it taking him some time. He needed a break.

    Does anyone think the Knicks are actively trying to trade Amare ?

    If it was up to some users we would already have traded everyone except of Chandler.

    I dont know if its just me but Baron Davis looks like hes more in rhythm then Atari...and Davis is a few years older. Amare went 6 months without basketball, Baron went 9

    Looks like the Stat defenders (They show more defense on here then Stat does on the court) are gonna have to come up with some more bullsh*t excuses. Keep defending your hero, this chump is done. His brains shot

    So much excuses for STAT in here. He's the one who kept pushing back his mini training camp. He's the one who elected to work on his own in FL once the lockout was lifted.

    It's been nearly 3 months into the season and he's played in over 30 games. How much time do you really need? Just because you don't play for 6 months doesn't mean you forget how to play the game. Doesn't affect rebounding and defense either. What the extreme STAT supporters are forgetting to mention is his effort period. I don't care if he doesn't score 20 pts BUT I do care if he's only getting 5 rbs and not contesting every shot. He looks lost out there and that has nothing to do with not playing basketball during the off-season.

    IF his jumpshot is too strong right now then adjust your shot OR here's a bright idea... keep your ass closer to the basket and score in the paint. Players adjust their shot all the time on the FT line.

    There's really no excuse for STAT, the same way there was no excuse for Melo's poor shooting BUT at least Melo is staying aggressive and remains a threat on offense. I just don't like Amare's body language. He's damn near invisible at times.
