Default How well do you think Amare will be this year?

Personally I don't think we'll ever see the same Amare. He's been on and off ever since last year and the best we'll ever see is probably some watered down version that puts up 22-8.

Then again, in my predictions 2 years ago I had the Sonics winning 38 games. They won 50 that year.

The only way I see the Suns making it to the finals is if the Spurs and Mavs clobber each other into submission and then they're both too tired to keep up with Phoenix, but if that didn't happen this year I don't think it will ever happen. Dal and SA are too good.

Thoughts?

Let's be real. Amare is done and so are the Suns. Those lucky MF's beat the Lakers last year when in reality, the better team lost. Damn 3-1..DAMN!!!!

I really hope the Suns aren't rushing him back. Its no secret that he shouldn't have played at all last year, and it seems that with all of these missed practices that once again he's trying to do too much, too soon.

Matt Harpring had a similar procedure done two years ago and he still doesn't do two-a-days, and said recently that he probably never will again. He missed most of the back-to-back games last year and spent countless hours doing rehab and various other exercises.

Amare really needs to pace himself. Go light, play limited minutes for a while when he does come back, skip one game of all the back-to-backs for a year. I wonder though, with Nash not getting any younger, if the Suns feels that this year is now or never.

Default Is it STAT Finished??

I don't know...
I always figured it was too good to be true, a player as dominating as STAT
to have a long career...
I hope he doesn't end up on "Beyond the Glory"...
I just knew something was funny when STAT signed that contract

McDyess worked his ass off and found an unstoppable midrange jumper off the turn around. If he starts he's prolly a 15/10 guy. That would be a dissapointment to Amare, the Suns, and his fans i'd imagine.

Mydess was never half the force in the paint that Amare was. Mydess could get 18/19 a game if he played 36-40mintues.Isn't that what he used to get?

Statistically, his best season was

21.2 ppg
10.7 rpg
1.6 apg
1.46 spg
2.30 bpg
47% FG

I'd say that's very comparable to Amare's best year.

Amare shoulda just made a committment to take 2 years off following the surgery just to be sure he didnt rush anything. Better to lose 2 years of him than have him for a long time as a gimpy jumpshooting shadow of his former self.
