I think Rab and A Roc summed it up pretty well. So I won't repeat what they said regarding Duncan and KG. And even though Dirk isn't as terrible a defender as some make him out to be. Amare's athleticism gives him the chance to be an above average defender at the very least. Better than Dirk could ever be. He just needs to put it together, or at least seem to care about playing defense.

Hey can you just leave the boards now? I mean, for one, you didn't even try back up your claim and two....you're calling people ignorant before any replies? So what was your point of this thread? Basically to start beef.


No matter who the player is (ex. Jordan) there will always be someone who thinks another player's better. It's called an opinion!

Your post shows ignorance, making you a hypocrite. Think about it junior.

Though I do agree that he's the third best currently, I disagree that he has less impact on a game than does KG(though not Tim Duncan). KG's offense is much less potent than Amare's. And though KG does have the upper-hand in defense, Amare is a great shot blocker and at least an average help defender and CAN(if he tries) impact the game defensively. I think they're about even in how much they effect the game.

The final line in your post says enough. If Amare still needs to put it together, how could he be considered the best already? Anyone who watched Nowitzki in the playoffs wouldn't be so quick to discard him in favor of Amare as they are right now. Sure, I'll concede the point Silent Mav made about Amare's athleticism. However, that's just the point. Amare's game is predicated on his athleticism. Quite frankly, Amare's age is the best thing he has going for him in this discussion since it would be easy to give him the benefit of the doubt concerning "potential". Right now? Nowitzki is the better player.

No effin way. Does Amare have any offense outside pick and rolls and pick and pops? I would love to see Amare play with a charlie ward or an eric snow.

No. Amare is a better big man than Dirk, simply because he scores his points closer to the basket. Seeing that there both similar in there impact on defense and on the boards this makes Amare much more valuable.

Amare doesnt have the arsenal of post moves Duncan or Jefferson has. He's aggressive, and a quick scorer, but nothin like the other 2 who have abilities to make shots

Ridiculous. Amare isn't top 3.

KG/Duncan/Dirk >>> Amare.

With or Without Steve Nash, I personally think that Amare Stoudemire can average 26 ppg because he is one of the best offensive big men in the NBA.

Why is it that the only people that put Dirk over Amare are Mavs fans?
