    Default Why is Amar'e injuring himself the reason he's gotten this explosion of hate?

    After all the things to want to trade him for, this is it? I could understand it from people who were already unhappy with him, not the others.

    He dribbled countless times like he's Derrick Rose and turned the ball over, played bad defense, left Nash hanging in Phoenix and claimed Phoenix didn't appreciate his leadership even though 80 million is not chump change for a guy they're worried about injuries and got out-rebounded by Nash in the Playoffs, designed a Heat t-shirt, looked like he wasn't giving the effort on the court, and whatever else he's done.

    Maybe he was mad himself last night and was fired up and is determined, or was, to set things right the next game, I don't know.

    I can't find it in me, though it was stupid, to have so much dislike for him because of THIS. I was sooooo frustrated and negative about him early in the season, mainly because of his lack of effort.

    So why did this set you off?

    its human nature that peeps get jealous of others who are richer and more famous then they are and once something goes wrong, this being banging on glass, it allows floodgates to open for absurd criticisms. its the same when you have a flawless celebrity who gets caught in a scandal like Tiger Woods, many peeps waiting to see them fall the here it is for Renaissance Man. playa hatin' if you will.

    also those who were blinded a lot of peeps here were afraid to blame Renaissance Man upfront and instead shifted and disguised there frustation towards Dantoni. he aint here no more and since today other peeps became more open blaming Statosphere the other ones arent afraid to voice there displeasure also without reprecussions.

    I never wanted to even sign Stoudemire, yo.

    Also, Melo, another player I'm not the biggest fan of...if he had smashed his hand like this, I wouldn't have given a **** -- actually, I may have given him some credit for showing fire in such a spot.

    Him doing it though showed he cared. Him giving almost to no defensive effort early in the season was much worse.

    How bout showing you care by grabbing rebounds, blocking shots and closing out on a 3 point shooter when you see him lining it up right in front of your face..

    I dont think he did it on purpose. It was definitely stupid but there are plenty of reasons not to like him that don't involve him being frustrated with his performance.

    Its because the media is finally turning against him, it really proves my point about the media's influence over fans. Melo was getting far more hate then Stat for a while and i understand we got rid of some talented role players to get him but at the end of the day it was really Dolans fault, not Walsh's or Melo's. Dolan pushed for that deal to go through, Walsh didnt wanna make it. Dont forget we also got Billups in that deal who sorta turned into Chandler. And Billups was and probably still us a very good player, he was averaging about 18.5 before he was traded to us. He was playing real good for the Clips before he got hurt, the deal wasnt as bad as some say it was. Gallo and (Wilson) Chandler leaving hurt but everybody else was replaceable including Felton, and thats no disrespect to Raymond. Im still a fan...but Lin >>

    Both Melo and Stat make about the same money, its clear that the media has an influence over some of the posters on this site. Stat got a pass from most fans throughout the year, Melo and Dantoni were the scapegoats. (Mike O really was a problem). It does show how dumb some fans are, and Im still a Stat fan as a person and basketball player. But for 100 milli...i mean hes worth about half that, maybe not even at this point. I can honestly say at least Melo's worth more then half of what hes paid

    This is probably the most correct assessment of the situation. However, I never thought he was worth the price tag because he just can not command a game on his own. He needs someone else to set him up. 100 mil is for players like Jordan, Kobe, Lebron, Durant...and maybe even Melo.

    The only thing I really have a problem with (as far as he's concerned) is the glass-hole move he did to take himself out of the playoffs. The other injuries and the other off court issues is understandable. I can't blame him for signing that pricey contract. I knew he was going to catch flack sooner or later because he is simply not worth that much cash. But to hate on him because it was offered to him is rediculous. That hate needs to be directed to upper management.

    So why did this set you off?
    First off, I have been waiting for Amare to "fit" in this offense for long enough. The guy is a poor defender and rebounder so when his offense suffers he is the most useless 20 min dollar player in the NBA.

    Melo is better than Amare and is our pure offensive leader, not Stat. Chandler is our pure defensive leader, not Stat. Stat is 3rd fiddle right now and if he can't fit on the offense with Melo, then his value to this team is 0.

    His injuries are annoying too much. His injuries come during the playoffs when he has to earn his pay, yet two self inflicting injuries will cost us two playoff series'

    Continuing on the self inflicting injuries, Amare is an idiot and the amount of technical fouls he gets, plus the fact that he hasnt learned to play defense or rebound is frustrating.

    However, Amare is now a scapegoat to the losing. He is a scapegoat to the peices not fitting because we know Melo and CHandler can win in a starting lineup, but when Amare comes in both players have to bow down to his star power which is now a value of 0, as I said.

    We also have a good record without him on a team that was barely over .500

    The main reason is that he doesn't fit and being out this series is icing on the cake for me. He missed last series and will miss this one because of stupidity, the fans deserve more than this.

    EPIC FAIL
