I was/ still am very ehhhh about this signing, don't get me wrong, Amare is a BEAST. BUT why didn't we show him a contract similar to Phoenix with the last two years not guranteed? knowing our luck I could see it right now, first fast break play and an alley loop pass gets thrown to Amare... he dunks it an BAM he lands wrong, tears his knee apart and is done for the year. I got a feeling that out of the 5 years he's at LEAST sitting one year. his kneees are real shaky, and Phoenix def know things about them knees that we don't. I mean we were dumb enough to pass him on the draft to draft Nene just to trade Nene to denver for Mcdyess, and just so he would use us for 2 years as his nursing home let's see what happens and I'm hoping for the best, but I'm gona hate saying"I told you so" when Amare sits down a whole year. I feel like he's gona slack alot more, so many clubs here and our nightlife get crazy, I know Phoenix can't be anywhere near f**king with our nightlife. dude might end up slacking harddd I can see it now reports of "Amare clubbing after a hard knicks loss" I'm sorry for being so optimistic, but being a fan of this team this long and seeing everything that's happened has made me this way.z
Gee, I wonder why we didn't offer him a contract similar to the one he already rejected with his hometown team that just came off a Western Conference Final.
If signing Amar'e nets us LBJ, I don't care if he goes down in training camp. Relax, there will be plenty of time to b**ch and moan. Amare's game itself can make anyone bi-polar, not to mention the fact that I'm sure there will be portions of games missed due to injuries....but damn, try to take it in an enjoy it. This is a big day for the Knicks and their future. We were supposed to be "shut out", remember?
