IMO neither player is A max player but both will get A max deal either from their current teams or on the open market. My question is which player of the two impacts games more? Not who averages more points or rebounds but who would give you A better chance of winning if surrounded by the right pieces

Bosh is carrying that Raptors team on his own so I'd take him. Amar'e has Nash feeding him, I don't know how good he'd be without him.

Having Nash does help tons, but I think since neither has a real defensive impact that I would lean towards Amare. Guy is still explosive offensive player after arthroscopic knee surgery and a serious eye injury. They both have similar range on their shots, and I just think Amare is more a force. But no neither are max money players. That's just LBJ and Wade, more so LeBron

bosh fo sho. is defense has improved and he was playing like a #1 before his injury. he hasnt been the same since returning.

Bosh.

He has steadily improved these last few years while Amare's numbers have gone down. Bosh can score in a variety of ways while Amare is fairly one dimensional and likely wouldn't be the same player without a stud PG feeding him easy dunks all the time, plus Bosh rebounds better and more consistently for his position. Is it even worth mentioning that he's younger and less injury prone as well?

With that said, I'm not sure either is a true franchise player or a max player, but if I were choosing b/t the two I'd take Bosh without hesitation.

True, Amare is a better finisher, but he's had a lot of practise playing with Nash lol. Almost every week, you see Amare slamming on someone by cutting in off a pass from Nash.

It is not a myth that Amare is only doing this because of Nash. Almost 90% of the highlights that involve Amare, it is because his teammates (mostly Nash), gave him a nice pass and a clear path to the basket. If Bosh had this, he would avg. 28 + pts. Also Amare is worse on D, which shouldn't happen since he is more athletic (shows hes lazy).

You are forgetting about team talent... can you honestly say that the Suns were less talented than the Raptors? When people play the suns, they have to worry about Nash and all the 3 point shooters. When they play the Raptors, they focus on Bosh. Nash can make anyone look better, time and time again this has been proven: Amare, Marion, Quentin, Frye, Diaw, etc,etc with the exception being Joe J.

2. Game isn't just highlights.
3. Check the first one.

Bosh. He's getting better and he doesn't have a PG like Nash to inflate his stats. Although I like Stoudemire, I see him more as a 2nd option, whereas Bosh is more of a 1B option. But both of them will most likely get max contracts this year as some GM will overpay.

Amare also scores on Isos. He had 30 points without Steve Nash against the thunder and scored 18 points in the fourth quarter against the Warriors without Nash.

1st half of the season Bosh

2nd half of the season Amare

You can say nash helps amare, but bosh is the focal point. Amare has been playing out of his mind on both ends of the court this 2nd half. I would say a max contract player. I would take amare over bosh. Not being a homer.

03-28-2010, 03:00 PM
Ill take Amare any day over Bosh. Amare has put it down against the best big men. He has pissed on Duncan, Garnett, Howard, boozer, all the best big man he has pissed on. He has done it in the playoffs as well.

I wish we would have gotten Amare.

Bosh is good but he seems like he is soft to me. I know he can score but he just seems like a finesse big man.

Me, I like my centers and power forwards to be physical, strong and I want them dunking on whoever in the paint.

Also I remember Shaq saying that "Bosh is the rupaul of big men" LOL. I think that will always stick with me. Give me Amare

crazygolucky
03-28-2010, 03:07 PM
People always think that Amare is Amare because he plays with Nash. That he can only get good looks because of Nash setting him up.

This is not true. Take it from someone who watches every game. Maybe 3 years ago with D'antoni this would be true, but nowadays Stat gets ALOT of one on one plays run for him, where he just faces up on the baseline and takes people to the house (every time i might add).

now as far as which player is better, i dont really know because i dont watch Bosh play all the time.
All i can comment on is the huge misconception that all Amare is is a cupcake dunker, fed by Nash every time.

This is so false, anyone who says this obviously has watched all but maybe 5 minutes of a Suns game this season.

and yes Amare has really opened up his entire game, on the defensive and rebounding tip as well.
Worth a max contract? just about! although im not really sure i ANY player deserves that kind of money.

WHy would you even want a max contract if youre a player? that means you just about bankrupted your team, leaving them unable to sign any other talent. I think you would have to be very greedy and selfish to even want that.

damn amare gets no love, all peoples excuses are is that he plays with nash.
Hes been dominating on post up isos, nobody can stop him. Hes got great post moves, and isnt taking jump shots anymore, unless hes wide open. Bosh on the other hand has been pretty much only taking jumpers the last little while. Stat is also a better defender, bosh doesnt even seem to try, the only thing bosh is better at is rebounding.

I don't think I've seen an alley loop, Nash to Amare dunk all year.. so saying Nash feeds Amare easy points means you don't watch the Suns at all..Even with Goran startign Amare got a 30 point game...Amare can take big men off the dribble..he gets fouled about 70 percent of the time though, most of his points come inside the paint when he's double and triple teamed.. If i'm building a team, Im building it around Amare..

Amare has a low b-ball IQ and wouldn't fit with what the Lakers are doing. Gasol did a better job of leading Memphis to the playoffs and losing to superior competition like the Spurs than Bosh has led the Raptors, lossing to "so-so" competition in the playoffs. Plus, Gasol's length is an advantage for the Lakers.

Bosh cannot dominate a game like Amare can

IF Amare continues to play like he has the second half of this season, the Suns are in good position to make a nice run this postseason.

And Lakers fans get real... Gasol has the luxury of playing with Kobe... I'm sure if Kobe and Amare played together in LA you would be all over Amare's nuts like you are always slobbering all over Pau's balls.

amare just had a putback off of a missed nash 3 point attempt with 43 seconds left in the game, putting the suns ahead by 9, which was followed by the commentator calling him 'the best player in the nba following the allstar break.'

two posessions later, a steal by amare. a block by amare the next play. game over with 16.5 seconds left.

11 30-point games since the allstar break. 30-17 against al jefferson and kevin love today
1 game out of second place in the western conference.

but, bosh and gasol are better of course.

Bosh by a slight margin ... They both are great players and will make their mark in this league. Statistically Bosh is much better and has much less of a supporting cast. That being said, the Suns play in the west where its much deeper. At this stage I think they are both top 3 players at the PF position. I would want either guy on my team....

No because Anderson Varejao is a role player off the bench, not a perennial all-star like Pau Gasol who is capable of guarding the best big man on the opposing team (like he did against Dwight Howard in last yr's finals).

In my opinion you cant go wrong with either, they are both good in their own way. But i have seen amare dominate games more than bosh, while bosh is more consistant.

I'd personally take A'mare. His athleticism is too much to pass on.

GaSoft16 How Old Are You like 14?

championships dont make good players....Karl Malone, John Stockton, Charles Barkley,Reggie miller,Lebron James(most likely will after his careers up), Patrick Ewing,Allen Iverson, Elgin Baylor,Jason Kidd,Shawn Kemp, Pete maravich , Dominique Wilkins, all - zero rings

Gasol is lucky he got traded to LA or he would also have none!

Gasol's ring was a gift From KOBE......Gasol on memphis couldnt even get past the first round!

I just watched some ESPN hilights. It verified my choice. A'mare is a man among boys, good god.

No because Anderson Varejao is a role player off the bench, not a perennial all-star like Pau Gasol who is capable of guarding the best big man on the opposing team (like he did against Dwight Howard in last yr's finals).

:facepalm:

Pau Gasol is the epitome of pussys. He plays defense with his tail between his legs.

I think Amare is back! I really hope we sign him next year.

Dont worry im about 95% sure Amare will be in MIA next season Wade will get him to go to miami and before the deadline amare said he wants to go to MIA

I can see MIA trying to sign Ilgauskas or Haywood

Mia

PF Amare
SF Beasley
SG Wade

Chris Bosh is the better player. Amare isn't a 20 and 10 power forward; Bosh is. Bosh is also a better passer than Amare, along with being a better shooter. Amare is the better dunker. Overall, Bosh is the more refined basketball player.

amare can't defend and rebound consistently but bosh isn't as dominant a scorer amare is. bosh will be a better player.

Amare, he is a beast. He's a power player versus Bosh who is a finesse player.

Bosh is carrying that Raptors team on his own so I'd take him. Amar'e has Nash feeding him, I don't know how good he'd be without him.

I dont know where heres carrying them but i dont think its a good place.
And the Raptors have 5 players who average more than 10 points, so hes got some help

amare can play pick and roll like a beast that is why nash gives him a lot of passes. Its not Amare fault that he has more mobility than other PF in the paint. Bosh became more of a jump shooter and is lacking more under the post game.

Bosh for 80% of the teams in the NBA. His post-up game is much better than Amare's. Amare for phoenix/new york or other teams looking to play up-tempo, since Amare's the better athlete/finisher.

Amare is fun to watch, much more dominant than Bosh. However, he is less consistent, and more injury prone than Bosh. So I will go with a consistent player like Bosh.

I like Bosh better than amare, but no way is amare more injury prone than Bosh.
Amare plays 75+ games on most years. he's had two major injuries (knee? which he made his comeback, and eyes which i don't really consider as an "injury prone" injury).
i'm not saying bosh is extremely prone to injuries, but he has consistently miss around 10 games every year he's been in the league (other than his 2nd year).

Give me Amare. Ever since the All star break he has been showing why teams should have showed more interest in trying to acquire him. He is on a terror.

Bosh always begins to break down both physically and mentally when the NBA season is coming to a close.

Did you guys not see when Nash was out with back strains. They had dragic playing point and Amar'e still dominated. His post game has improved alot this year and his defence has gotten way better than Bosh's. I know it sounds Homer but if I had to pick Amar'e or Bosh. I'd go with Amar'e. He is playing basketball like a beast right now.

amare,when he plays up to his potentiol like now, he is hard to believe...his best years are better than bosh's,i see him going to miami to play with wade,and that will be the number 1 team in the east for 4-5 years.

Amare has had Nash feeding him but Amare has also had to share shots with other good players on winning teams whereas Bosh's whole career has been as the only legit option on pretty mediocre/bad teams.

Ill take Amare any day over Bosh. Amare has put it down against the best big men. He has pissed on Duncan, Garnett, Howard, boozer, all the best big man he has pissed on. He has done it in the playoffs as well.

I wish we would have gotten Amare.

Bosh is good but he seems like he is soft to me. I know he can score but he just seems like a finesse big man.

Me, I like my centers and power forwards to be physical, strong and I want them dunking on whoever in the paint.

Also I remember Shaq saying that "Bosh is the rupaul of big men" LOL. I think that will always stick with me. Give me Amare

This is all correct.
