The Suns are playing well, but my grandma could out-rebound Ama're right now. This guy is not worth max money AT ALL
on top of that, he doesn't care for defense altogether and will end up more like Jermaine O'Neal (never got it together) than Shaquille O'Neal (impact big man).......

I mean i agree with you but like someone said what is the part of this thread? And you kind of pick the wrong time for this thread. With 13 and 11 rebounds in his last 2 games.

So does that mean your grandma can out-rebound you? :)

he's a great offensive rebounder this year, though. in fact the vast majority of his rebounds are offensive. i suppose he doesnt feel the need to get them on defense as much because he doesnt pad his stats by getting rebounds when the other team is already running back to the other side of the court. but amare is a very good offensive rebounder

Any team would take him for anything slightly short of max money...

With his style of play, and the way we play, he doesnt really need to focus on rebounding on the defensive end. Grant Hill and Richardson take the boards, push it up the court and Amar'es already up there.

1. Is your grandmas name Larry Johnson?
2. Amares has already had a better career than Jermaine oneal, so I don't understand the comparison.
3. Shaq is a completely different type of player.
4. He does care about defense now. If you've been watching us he's doing good on pick and rolls, rotations, and one on one defense.

To say he doesn't care about defense is wrong, too. Pretty sure I heard him say he was enjoying defense not that long ago.

There's about 4 teams on top of the Suns (5 if the Rockets get involved) that will all fight for him and in the end, max money is what will be necessary.

Side note, you should add the [quote] at the end of your sig to fix the broken quote.

how much is a guy worth who is the best finisher coming off a pick/roll, has a nice mid-range, can get to the ft line and knock em down, run the floor, take his man off the dribble right to the basket creating a matchup nightmare for a defense who has to double and triple team, decent rebounder/shot blocker and capable of averaging 40 points if he's the primary focus on offense?

i know everyone wants amare to be a shut down defender on top of everything else he does but can you name a pf/c who can do everything amare does and still play d? howard? bynum? garnett? aldridge? the only one that i can think of is dirk because of his versatility and he scores in different ways.

it's so easy to pick apart a players short comings but when you stop and think about it, who could you get that can replace amare's production?

Most of the players who get max contracts aren't worth them. But overpaying happens a lot more often than underpaying. That's just the way the business is.

Amare may not be the best rebounder or the best defender, but he's a very gifted scorer and few big men have hands as good as his.

I was pretty shocked when I heard Doug Collins say the leading rebounder on the suns for the post-season was Grant Hill. Number 2 was Jason Richardson.

It`s quite mind boggling.

I disagree... with their style he should be getting way more off. rebounds. Also Hill and Richardson are going to be running out because in their system they shoot 3s. Amare is relying to much on his Center to get the boards.

yeah.. very bad timing.. he still a complete big man tho and he still gonna get the max contract whether we think so or not

don't forget Robin Lopez eats up rebounds and blocks so he doesn't make it necessary for Amare to rebound on Defense

I was just wondering why Amare was put on the All-NBA Second Team as a center. He has been starting at power forward all season, like Duncan and Gasol (all three of whom play some minutes at center, but mostly play power forward and start at the power forward position). Lopez and Frye have been starting at center, and in the playoffs Collins has as well, Amare seems to always be at power forward. Frye had 41 starts, Lopez 31, and Collins 10, that equalls 82 starts at center, meaning Amare didnt start at center once all season, so why is he listed as center for the All-NBA team?

Anybody know what's going on there?

they jsut want a star there, Bogut could have had 2nd team all center

Punkindrublic03
05-06-2010, 10:25 PM
It's because Amare is the Center while he's on the floor alot of the time.

Why does Duncan make the all star game as a center some years?

MacFitz92
05-06-2010, 10:34 PM
The same reason there is two SGs and two SFs on the first team. They seriously should start doing a PG, SG, SF, PF, and C. Dirk should be first team, because he is the best PF in the NBA.

I think that there is more of an issue with basically three SG's making the All-NBA 1st Team. Okay, so Durant isn't technically a SG but still, why no PG?

Duncan is technically a center but the Spurs have always started him at power foward.

They just didn't want to put him on the third team, he and Bogut should've switched places and Timmy/Pau could've been put in at center.

As a Spurs I can easily admit that during the regular season Dirk>All other PF's

Great offensive rebounders don't carry a 9.1% offensive rebound rate. He is average or slightly better than average for a so called star player

Hawkeye15
05-07-2010, 08:36 AM
The 1st team all NBA has often picked a SF, and two PF's. And quite often, there are 2 SG's. It doesn't necessarily have to include a traditional PG, SG, SF, PF, C. Two guards, a wing, and two bigs.

How is that funny? I mean it's debatable but Dirk's easily top 3 at his position and a top 10 player period.
