You raise some interesting points, but I still believe that Kemps game was more diversified than Amare's. Perhaps, as you noted, Kemp's game - given the TOs - wasn't as effective as Amare's but the range of skills that Kemp displayed were still greater.

If Kemp were a more disciplined individual, the level he could have reached would have been higher than Amare's, IMO.
