Are the Knicks better or worse with amare now playing? Everyone thought he would ruin the chemistry. I feel he's playing alright and hasn't stuffed the chemistry, except they are starting to lose a bit more. Opinions?

Haven't been watching them much, so I can't comment on the chemistry, but they were already starting to lose a bit more before he came back - 3-4 in the 7 games before his return, 4-5 since. Can't put the record solely on him.

His offense is improving game by game, he doesn't ruin the chemistry, he and melo had good chemistry during today's game.
He needs to work more on his defense though..

The record doesnt look good but that's just cause its a cold streak, not Amare's fault. The team as a whole looks better with Shump and Amre back, and Melo and Stat seemed to have really good chemisty today.

Looked pretty good the last couple games, definitely getting his game back. Unfortunately, their not clicking as a team like they were in the beginning of the year.

He looks like garbage and his defense and rebounding are as bad as ever. He gets some wide open dunks and shots b/c Melo draws a ton of attention but generally he sucks.

to early to tell. offense looks good, defense is atrocious, but the knicks as a team have been bad recently on D. Also, melo and stat look good together when tyson is on the bench. melo just looks a lot better playing the 4 than the 3

I like the 15 points hes scoring. He needs that mid range back and I really think he needs to get those boards up. The defense has always and will always need more work.

Defense sucks but still too early to judge. I'll wait to see what he brings in second half...

Well worth the contract... obviously. Nothing says 100 Million like coming off the bench and giving a solid 10 ppg.

He hasn't really made an impact in either direction.

This actually seems like a pretty fair assessment.

His defense is the same, rebounding a bit worse... Same guy I saw last year

Offensively he is getting better and becoming a nice decoy from Anthony when he gets to the rim.
Still, his defense is horrible, yeah, he's trying, but it's still bad. It'd be nice to have another big to for him to play with and communicate in the post with.
Wallace needs to come back as does Camby. He needs guys like this to be cover his mistakes and allow him to be more effective. Kmart is an option, but he does stutter and the Garden is loud.

He is getting his rhythm back on offense and it looked like he was at least trying to compete on the boards in the game against the Nets.

He has shown signs of picking up on some of the rotations on D but as most people have pointed out, he is never going to be a good defensive player.

I can see him being a consistent 15/7 off the bench after the all-star break.

Melo doesnt have help he thought he would when he came to the Knicks, Amare was playing well. Now he is like the only superstar that doesnt have a 2nd man that can carry the offense.

Its not him and melo that cant mesh. Its him melo and chandler on the court at the same time. There is no need for stat. Its too bad he is worth nothing we could really use a solid pg.

This may be the first positive thing you said in 3 years. Well it's negative but at least it is true.
