i have nothing else to say to u guys...always finding someone to blame when everything is going great!!!!!
just put this in ur head stats will turn it around and when he does we become the best team in the nba!!!!
cant wait to tell u all: I TOLD U SO!!!
BUT EVEN THEN U GUYS WILL FIND SOMETHING TO HATE...OR EVEN HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY IT WAS LUCK!!!!
This entire thread is kinda pointless, there was already 5+ STAT threads on the main forum yet this one with it's horrible negative connotations gets the moderator nod as the "go to" thread.
STAT is playing like crap, bottom line is he will be here until the end of this season at the least. When we have a player of his calibre on the team we aren't gonna bench him or not use him. So you better all hope he returns to form because it's one of the several things that needs to happen for this Knicks team to succeed.
Watching the Thuders play the Magic on TNT
and they had Shaq speaking on halftime about Big men
He was ripping on Dwight saying he needs at least 28 17
then he spoke on Amare for a quick second and said Amare 14 and 5 aint getting it done
I think some media attention to STAT will get him rolling
like when he first came last season and Media was all over
him. He seems to only play hard when the spotlight is on him
i.e national Tv games
The way the Magic launch 3 pointers, Howard is actually doing beyond great on the boards this season. 19ppg, 15 rpg.
Hell if i was Dwight Howard i would want to leave that 3 point Orgy team the magic possess too
Why does Amare have to put up these incredible numbers? i have no prob with amare dropping 14 points as long as he's doing the little things to help the team win he does not have to put up 25+ every night look at our roaster. Amare/chandler/Melo/Lin/chandler & arguably the best bench in the NBA. The only player i expect to put up decent numbers is Carmelo Anthony, since he's most likely the best player on our team & capable of exploiting defenses and getting his shot and getting to the foul line whenever he pleases.

It's all about effort for me. Amar'e can get dunked on, blocked, fumble the ball, etc., but when I see him let players go uncontested that's what I hate. Perhaps I've been too hard on him because before last night's game he was giving effort on D and wasn't taking bad shots the previous few games, but he's gotta do that consistently.
Can't believe this thread has the amount of posts that it does. Controversy creates high ratings.
you wrote " Suggest a trade a start over "
Thats the point.....we are now in a position that we are a solid NBA contender...
Replace AMARE with 20 million dollars of other players and we only get better,,,,....
Did you not watch him flapping his arms as Kyle Irving went flying thru the lane ?
You cannot just worry about this year...his contract if he does NOT improve will be suffocating to the Knicks for the next 3 years,,,,,,,so if you can move him then move him.
2.2 fpg (amazing to play great defense but low on fouls)
1.7 TOs (low turnover = efficiency)
If thats decent, the please show me whats good? Then show me whats great....at the center position.
Amare wouldn't help Phoneix out now, so whats your point? Gortat is better than Amare and Morris is on his way to becoming a better all around player.
Phoneix finish 2 games under .500 last year, and they're 5 games under .500 this year, they're not the 50 win team they had back in the day, but it doesn't change the point Amare is damaged goods. You give Phoneix a good wing player, they become a good team again.
Dudley Grant Hill and Channing Frye won't get it done.
