I love how people hide behind the vague "if someone says such and such they just don't know the NBA."

Everything you just said about Kemp applies to Amare except Amare had an even more agressive offensive mentality and played with Steve Nash as opposed to Gary Payton. And oh yeah, Amare was in his 3rd year out of high school, Kemp peaked during his 4th-10th years, after coming out of College.
