Amare had the worst +/- of all Knicks players. Tell me how that happens to one of the "best" players on a team. That RARELY occurs and indicates an underlying trend beneath the boxscores.
+/- of course needs context. Landry has the highest +/- because he played with the starters (our best players). The moment the momentum shifted in the other teams favor (even though he caused it a number of times), his ass was yanked to the bench and a different line-up had to stop the bleeding. No surprise.
