I don't think Amar'e jives with the 1's, but I don't see why he can't be your "go to guy" on offense with the 2nd team. I guess the problem is that both he and the organization might feel required to start him, but I just don't see how he fits in with the 1's.
As for Shump, he's gotta start, plain and simple. So I expect he'll take playing time from Prig, Brewer, Kidd, a few minutes (not much) from Novak and possibly some from J.R. Smith when Smith is cold (he's streaky).
Sandy is a proven liar and a shill for the worst ownership in baseball
