Re: Amare for Pau
Amare fits in LA if he and Howard are constantly running the pick n' roll. It honestly just doubles the problems for the other team. As long as Amare runs back hard it wouldn't be a problem. He's got the jumpshot and he can iso if the floor is spread. Dwight becomes the only guy to regularly worry about getting the ball in the post. Amare can use those Hakeem moves in an open floor space.
If both are back to being themselves, Gasol is the better player. He might also fit the Knicks better, but I honestly don't want him. Age is not an issue. Contract is not an issue. Quality is not an issue. Even him working with Melo or in the spotlight is not an issue. We have Kidd. I'm sure Gasol would get his. I just don't feel like having any Pau in my life.
