what would Amare do against Z-Bo and Gasol though? ... hopefully get some rebounds for starters

this game actually proved nothing...back to back never happen in playoffs. We played a tough game vs the spurs and the refs screwed us in the 3rd.

of course amare can help but were u waiting to post this when we got our first loss? of course we want good players back...bringing back shumpert would be nice as well

Amare would have been more effective inside and kept Melo against Gay instead of having him pick up those ridiculous fouls

Kurt and Camby can rebound. Amare, not so much.

I thought Kurt did a good job when he came in tonight. All we needed was to put some size on them and buckle down on D and I think it would have been a different game. And yes, some calls to go our way too.

Like I said before the game, Amare usually neutralizes Z-Bo when we play them, plus that would have meant less time for Melo to be guarding Gasol, and likely less fouls for Melo.

This game proved that the refs really deserved that JR Smith elbow that the punk Bayless caught. They robbed us so they at least deserve a few broken teeth in the process.

Amare is the answer to nothing except who deserves to get traded for a piece that actually fits.

That was just bad and the fact he didn't adjust to the matchup worries me.
