Next time, give some actual EXPLANATION and REASONING behind your statements. Or else they're of little value.

We've had this discussion before man. Amare and Dirk are so close right now it could go either way and actually I put Dirk ahead of Amare in my latest rankings. But to use your argument and to say its ridiculous like you said in a earlier post is plain retarded.

Rab and Aroc summed my thoughts up and I do think that Amare will pass up Kg and Dirk this next year. I have high hopes for him.

I'm as big a fan of Amare's as anyone, but I also see major flaws in his game that if he worked on, would push him over KG.

I think there is a fine line with the system the Suns played, and Amare's willingness to put effort into being a good defender that contribute to his defensive woes. Certainly you can attribute effort into why he's not a better rebounder. He simply doesn't go all out to get a board and often lets his man overpower him. Terry Porter can only teach so much, but it will ultimately be up to him to commit to defense and rebounding.

well to be fair kg has a big advantage over amare in experience, 13 years to 5, so we cant really expect them to be on the same level right now, like i said im not saying amare is better i would just prefer to have him on my team. i think amare gets alotta flak for his defense and rebounding but he has been overpowered by bigger opponents his entire career and you got players like yao ming who's rebs are very close to amare's.playing for D'antoni hasnt helped him develope defensively, hopefully he will work on that and get better, and playing against pf's instead of centers is a plus.when you look at amare's career stats so far i think he stacks up well against any other c/pf.

21 pts...9 rebs
playoffs career stats
25 pts...10 rebs

kg career stats
20 pts..11 rebs / playoffs 21pts..12 rebs

duncan
21 pts...11 rebs / playoffs 20pts...11 rebs

yao
19pts...9 rebs /playoffs 21 pts...8rebs

He's not complete enough....he's a one man wrecking ball, with limited skills? He probably could be the best, if he really wanted to though?....he may not have limited skills at all?, if he got his head into it.

He is an impressive player, I'll give you that.

just like he did with (GOAT) Tim Duncan... I believe Pop can make Amare even greater than he is.

amare is a loser and always will be a loser. i dont see him carrying a team like duncan. he doesnt do the little things. he does the things that make him look good dunks and bs. to someone who knows the game and isnt a superstar band wagon d1ck rider you can see right through amare for what he is

I'd take him over any other PF other than Duncan. Oh, and if you consider Dwight a PF too, but I don't.

It's ridiculous to say Amare is the BEST PF. That was my point.
