He cost Terry his job because Terry demanded he play some damn defense. Amare is extremeky skilled but cmon. Call a spade a spade. He supported Dantoni because his system was tailor made for him.
Exactly. And if we can trade him for some defensive playing rebounders along with a few other players (throw chandler in he mix and get Dwight and hedo) the Knicks will truly be a better team.
