When somebody first told me about this I literally thought they were ****ing with me. I still can't really grasp how idiotic Amare must be to do this. I mean the entire game he is lifeless then all of a sudden he's juiced up in emotion in the locker room and punches out a fire ext.? Really?
I still like Amare, I mean I want to believe in Amare I guess, but it hasn't been working. He doesn't close out on d or reb. On offense he's lifeless I think if he was closer to man with ball and made constant hard cuts it could work better but the Knicks haven't really been doing that. Anyway at least this gives Jeffries a chance let's see what he can do I think we are guarenteed more hustle with rebs and d at least
when Melo's cookin, we have a shot to win every night, if not we tend to play worse than usual, I wanna see this team at full health after a full training camp but sadly I doubt we get everyone back
Dwade won 2 championships and one of them as the main guy....its probably much easier for him to defer knowing he already won it as "the man".
I disagree that STAT can't handle being a complimentary player. I think he can, just not with Melo. I think it's Melo that can't stand having anyone else around him.
Melo would be happiest playing 1 on 5.
STAT has shown a willingness to take the second fiddle. He's tried to make it work. But the way it's set up, it's just not a good fit. Melo and Amar'e don't fit.
You put Amar'e next to a guy like LeBron, or a Wade, for example, and he'll drop the buckets for you and be happy about it. No doubt in my mind.
This was most likely the worse year in Amare's life. The injuries, the death in his family, etc...
The 100 million dollar man should recycle some of Steve Austin's body parts...
The parts should be on sale, no longer worth that 6 million price tag but still serviceable enough to play a decent game of BBall I suppose.
Melo should be the focal point on offense but share the distribution of ball with Lin. We need role players who will move without the ball. We need role players who will hustle on defense.
Let Melo take his 20+ shots per game. Let Lin be the facilitator. Bring in a bruiser PF who can board and provide rim protection. We will then contend.
to all you fans here who still support Renaissance Man guess what he doesnt care about you, I dont see him thanking the supportive fans here.
"But again, my family stuck with me, my friends and teammates stuck with me so hopefully I'll be ready for Sunday."
