Well, I did said he should play more at the four, not totally.

When Amare was out, that's exactly what he did under Woodson.

And nope, he was guarded by threes, and he was guarding threes.

Besides to think your best player shouldn't adjust is ridiculous.

Even LeBron had to adjust, he didn't win until he implemented a post game......

In other words, he worked with his back to the basket on the low block.

Unlike you though, I'm not endorsing trading amare to make this happen.
