But we have seen many times when Amare gets pissed off and wants to play defense, he has the best blocks in the NBA.
Just think about the block on Stephen Jackson during an away game that completely silenced the crowd and this dunk would have tied the game i belive and amare just stuffed the crap out of him, embarissing him.
This is the Amare I wish came every night>>>[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
He is averaging 26 ppg, he is in the top 5 list for MVP candidates, I am not concerned about his intensity on defense because i know he doesnt want to foul people.
But when he just gives up plays and doesnt rebound, then that is problem
If Amare doesn't get more than 7 rebounds in a game, then there is a problem. He should get atleast 9 boards every game, with his athleticism he should get more.
So I know he shows signs of laziness on defense and rebounding but Mike D does not stress these things so how can you expect Amare to focus so much on it?
Amare can only coach so much before he needs the coach to help him out and the coach only focuses on shooting. And Amare has been stroking it.
