IMO, the perfect running team would be with Amare as the center and an athletic SF playing PF.
chandler and amare were on the team when linsanity happened.
Look at the suns? thats why shaq, hill are playing full seasons on that team. Nash still playing awesome at that age. More defense=more injuries. Thats why you need offense to limit the time for playing defense.
