Let's not forget that David Lee, in his grand breakout year with the Knicks where he became a 20/10 player...
...led the team to a 29-win season. Not to mention that despite all of his boards our team still sucked ass at rebounding - we were worse with him than we were with just STAT in the first half of last year which is sad.
And what's David Lee winning right now? The guy is the NBA version of Drew Brees, guy who pads his stats in meaningless games, except at least Drew Brees at least won something at one point.
Lee played with Duhon as the starting PG.
Lee is better than Amar'e now, and costs less.
Anyway, I'm holding off most of my frustration for Amar'e a week or two (less if he does that bad). I feel bad seeing this thread title and seeing so much negativity against him. Some of it's deserved, but it feels a bit much now seeing how big this got.
Just saying that most of the people who are like DAVID LEE FFS now were much happier with Amare at the point we signed him.
And people seem to forget Lee was just as much of a liability on defense as STAT. He does grab more boards but he has absolutely no inside presence whatsoever, at least Amare was blocking 2 shots last year.
It made me laugh my ass off when I played NBA 2k12 and the commentators were talking about STAT being a lane enforcer
Lee's rebounding passing and intangibles > Amare and his gay attire.
A few days off of games, A few practices..
CMON STAT SHUT US ALL UP......A breakout game against the douche Garnet!
You know guys. Amare is going to have to re-invent his game. I dont believe his back has fully healed or will ever heal. He has to turn into our new LJ. Knock down that jumper even stretch the floor to the 3 and also develop a back to the basket post game. He will never be the high flier he used to be.
