The decline in their careers has been erringly similar.
As a Knick fan, it's depressing, but I wanted other fans opinions on this.
T-Mac and Amare were both top 10 players. And around 28-30, injuries began to decimate their careers after about ten years in the league of being high flyers.
For Amare, it's been his back and knees.
He's been back about six games now and he looks rusty but just doesn't look the same anymore.
I'm hoping this isn't the case, but my hope is probably like a Rockets fan hope in 2009 that McGrady would return to promenience.
It's amazing because just two years ago Amare was a MVP candidate. Just like two years prior to McGradys decline he led a 22 game win steak. And injuries killed them in such a short time frame.
Sadly Melo may never have that high scoring superstar next to him in NY, just a defensive minded one in Chandler.
The same high school to pros story may end the same. Injuries killed their careers.
