    Daryl Morey would not touch Amare's contract with a 10-foot pole. The very thought of him coming to Houston makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

    1. That year was condensed.
    2. Dantoni didn't really fit with Melo
    3. The east is weaker after you get past Miami, Boston, and Indy (Granger isn't right).

    Melo can defiantly lead this team IMO. We can make fun of their age, but Kurt, Sheed, and Camby have pride and some level of competitiveness. I think them in a locker room with Kidd and Tyson will have the other members of that team ready and fired up.

    I also think Melo is more than good enough. He did it in Denver, with a tougher conference, in a tougher division, and with constant injuries to his starting bigs. I think people are severely under selling the guy especially since he will have a regular and not condensed season, and unlike last year isn't coming out of the camp/preseason hurt

Players that carry teams are LeBron, Wade, Durant, Dirk, Paul, Howard, Kobe and maybe Rose.

    And this is a huge loss for NY. Who else is gonna score outside of Melo who will take 25-30 shots?

    Smith will score...... on 20 shots.

    Kidd, Prigioni are both awful scorers while Felton is up in the air.

    Chandler can't score. Don't expect the dinosaurs to score at all.

    Amare is very overrated but this is a huge loss.
    Wasn't like Melo didn't meet a Kobe who was still near his peak multiple playoffs or a Duncan/Manu duo who had much more in the tank. He got knocked off by the Spurs and Lakers out west, ain't no shame in that. It wasn't like he loston to Boston on a depleted team and with Amare basically useless or out and wasn't a Jeffries layin from actually stealing a game even then.

    If you put the Nuggets and Cavs in different conferences during those years Melo could've been in the finals and LeBronm the won being swept or beat yearly in the postseason by Tim and Kobe led teams

    Aaaaaaannnnd. He lost in the first round almost every year.

    He had plenty of times to show he is a winner. But just isn't.

    Hope he proves me wrong though. For one, he is way more effective as PF. And he should realize this.

    I was never a fan of the contract. I did like STAT as a player. I just didn't like the idea of 5 years given his surgeries.

    Too much money for too long on an UNINSURED contract.

    I do feel bad for the guy. I honestly believe he thought he'd be good for the entire contract.

    We'll see when he comes back, but I'm rooting for him (despite the little voice in my head screaming "Beware Phoenix... 3-4 years TOPS!").

    Kevin Martin, Eric Maynor are capable scorers and even Serge Ibaka averaged 10 the last 2 seasons. I know what you were trying to get at, but I don't think the Thunder qualify.

    It's crazy how we're only a 1.5 seasons removed from Amare getting MVP chants and worshiped at the Garden. It seems like we only know him for the injuries, bad play and massive contract.

    Chandler, Shump, Novak & Felton are all capable of 10+ppg.

    Amare's situation is sad though, he keeps himself in great shape, its not from lack of trying.

    Preseason Playa Hatin has just got to stop...

    Folks, it's 6 weeks.... we don't watch real basketball until February anyways. Stop it with all this writing Stat off crap. YES, he is not the player from his PHX days; YES he is probrably the top 5 worst defender in the league. But he can score and still has plenty of morale-wrecking dunks to dish out. Yes I'm talking to you Mr. KG, Mr. Bosh & Heat center:_(insert name)___.

    In case y'all forgot.... Boom Shackalacka!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqc1MNA3GZ0

    Let's enjoy the upcoming season. Living in La La Land w/ the LakeShow and Clips, and now my online feeds of Knicks games, I know I will.

    I just love LOLing at how bad the Knicks are in terms of basketball and decision making. They ran Isaiah Thomas out of town which was well warranted but they keep making horrible personnel decision, such as Amare and Melo, who might be the most overrated player in the NBA.
