Amare'- What gives?
Here is a player with crazy potential. Could quite easily dominate both ends of the court but clearly has no desire to.
Evidence- after all his pre-season talk of becoming a complete player, and working so hard on his D, Amare ranks 31st in the L for rebounding.
Shaq isn't stealing his boards either, he's ranked 35th.
He ranks equal 46th for blocked shots with Wiz rookie McGee and Swift, the project ranga for OKC.
Now stats do lie and mislead on occasion, but of all the players on these lists ranked higher- only chris bosh has played more minutes than Amare.
Maybe he works so hard at scoring, his tank is empty for D? Tell that to guys like Duncan, Bosh, Randolph, Boozer, West, Rasheed, KG and Dirk, guys that all score and rebound.
Maybe Amare boxes out real well and smaller guys get in to grab the boards and trigger breaks?
Maybe Amare is concerned more with solid D rather than getting into fouls trouble chasing swatts?
Maybe he is cruising until the playoffs where he will average 30/15/5?
Only one thing is for cetain,
If i was a suns fan i would be bald.
