Some of the comments about Amare are a little unfair.
Dude will be a nightmare for teams if he's healthy, in rhythm, and coming off the bench. The reason he can't be a starter, for this team at least, is his poor defense. That's really the only reason. His offense is there.
If we have him on our 2nd unit with some defensively responsible players around him there is absolutely no reason he can't be a force to be reckoned with. On that 2nd unit he was capable of scoring 22 in 20, as he did numerous times this season. We lost our identity as a team during the middle of season, as a collective team, not because of him.
We regained it when Kenyon came back and started preaching defense again. As long as one of Rasheed or Kenyon is in there with a vocal defensive presence, Amare will be an amazing asset to us.
