He flourished in D'Antoni's system and did horrible in Porters. Now with Gentry and the Suns going back to run and gun, Stoudemire is dominating. 23pts last night in 20 minutes. And has 23pts tonight in 16 minutes with 2:43 left in the first half (also shooting 10-12 fg).

As a Suns fan, this is a very good thing. I just don't think he could do well in another system.

He'd do fine. He's not a system player.

You might be right.

Yes, but in a slow pace, defensive system, that 21 and 8 isn't very good when his opponent is scoring 20+ themselves. In a fast paced system he scores so much (and the team) that letting his opponent score 20 points doesn't even matter. His weaknesses go away by playing in a system like the Suns.

I don't think he's a system guy, but I definitely believe he's not a no. 1 option. If you want to compete for a title, he's not the guy you want featured as the main player. He's much better playing off of a 1st option type guy. When Nash is flowing and into the game, Amare's game gets progressively better.

The main thing for Amare to improve on is his defense. He also needs to improve on his rebounding and play more in the post. He's a pick and pop type of player.

I agree. Obviously he thrives in a more open court game, but if he went to another team that didn't run and gun, he would be fine. His athleticism at that size and offensive skill set would still find a way to put up good numbers regardless of the system.

he's not a system player, he just flourushes in a run and gun system just like every athletic big man would.

He is not a system player.

He can score in multiple ways.

theres a difference between system player...and just being better in 1 style of play then the other....most players wud have better numbers if there team was gettin a handful more possesions a game.

He was averaging 21 ppg under Porter this year, which matches his career avg. He may be best suited in a fast-paced offense because he runs the floor so well but there's no denying he has skills.

His jumper is just as sweet regardless of what system hes in, but the reason hes abusing us is because we have Ricky Davis and Thornton guarding him.

Can he create his own shot or does he need Nash to set him up?

Every big man wants a good PG. I think that just speaks volumes to how good Nash is. But I've seen Amare jump over pretty much everyone in the league so I'd say he can create his own shot. When in doubt, dunk on your defender.

box score to the clipper game. as you can see, the clippers have 1 big and he was guarding Shaq all night. That means yes Al Thornton, Ricky Buckets, I think even Steve Novak, Mardy Collins, and Fred Jones were taking turns on him too.
