If Amare was on our team last year with Duhon at the point and no big man to back him up on the boards and on defense, would he average the same numbers as David Lee did and be as much of an impact on offense? And would he even be an allstar without Steve Nash feeding him passes and Robin Lopez blocking shots getting rebounds/Channing Frye shooting three's and leaving Amare with one man to beat off the boards?

And with Carlos Boozer, could he have the same numbers without Derron Williams at the point and Mehmet Okur at Center?

This question makes me wonder how good Amare and Boozer really are and how under rated Lee really is.

In my opinion, signing Lee to 12 million a year can be of greater value than even thinking of signing Amare or Boozer for more.
