Default In their prime, Shawn Kemp or Amare Stoudemire?

Kemp(rough estimate)- 18/11/2/1.5/2 on 53-54%, All-NBA 2nd team/7-8 in MVP/2nd in defensive rating/top 5 in defensive win shares


Amare(rough estimate)- 22/9/2/1/2 on 54-55%, mostly All-NBA 2nd team with 1 All-NBA 1st team/6th in MVP and generally top 10/top 10 in offensive rating/led league in offensive win shares and 2nd one other time


Who would you rather have?

Kemp would have been nice in today's NBA if he could avoid getting T'd up for taunting. The spacing that we see today would give him a lot of run to face up and mash on cats. I'd probably take Kemp over A'mare. This is a close call, and nostalgia might be clouding my judgement.

Kemp, he played bigger. His dunks were angrier.

Amare has done nothing even with the 2x MVP in Nash as his PG. Kemp reached the Finals 2x I believe and would have won if he didn't play in the same decade as Jordan.

I think Amare is a better number one option. But I might just have to lean to prime Kemp. Kemp was devastating and to this day might be the most freakish athletic PF of all time. He's a better rebounder, passer, and defender than Amare. Kemp also had a midrange jumper damn near on par with Amare as well as a better handle. I think Amare's eye and knee injuries slowed his freakish athletic shit to a degree. And Kemp's game seemed to stall out in his late 20's and early 30'swhen he should have been at his peak. So Kemp became another what if case, instead the HOFer he should have been.

Believe it or not, I think Amare still has some upside in his game. He still has a shot at the HOF if he can finish out the last 8-10 years of his career strong. In terms of being able to finish like a beast in the paint and combining it with a very nice midrange shot, it seemed Amare, Mcdyess, and Kemp all had that going for them. Hopefully Amare can finish his career strong!

Amare pre microfracture in the 04-05 season was nasty. I'll take that version of Amare over any version of Kemp.

Not at Seattle.

Posters look at ppg, but it was a different league back then.
Kemp would be a 22/10 guy these days.
If anything his athleticism and skills are underrated, he was really a brilliant player in his prime.
