It's hilarious to see so many people crying and complaining and whining about losing this kid. I liked the story as much as the next guy but one thing bothers me. Where was all the fuss and outrage and 11k signatures on petitions when Mark Jackson got traded? He was Rookie of the Year and had crazy chemistry with Pat Ewing.

End of the day, like you said, he had to go get his dough and we had to do what was best for us. I just find is disgusting and shameful that the hacks at ESPN are trying to make it more than that.

It's hard to say what would have happened had the internet been around back then.

Pretty much. He left his team high and dry in back to back year from self induced non-basketball injuries. He has a lot to prove.

I just wonder what he will do next season in order to avoid the playoffs.
First he injured his back trying to show off and then he was mad at fire extinguisher.

Considering yesterday he actually said anything less than a championship is a wasted season, I have no idea what to expect from Amare.

Last season he said he's going hunting to South Beach.
Amare is all talk.

Most of Knicks fans blame Melo for all but the fact is that Amare had worse stats,played worse defense and did more stupid stuff (see the fire extinguisher incident) than Melo.

Amar'e isn't perfect, but he was very marginilized on the team. You can't score much when you're only getting 5 or 6 shots. And I don't see how his defense was worse. They're both mostly bad with isolated moments of competence.

I believe Amar'e would go back to his 2011 form on a different team.

Then you should visit an eye specialist.

Chris Bosh wasn't the one killing us in the first round, LeBron was.
