the procedure he had was the same one he had at the beginning of the year, except the other knee. it wasn't anything major. i think he has a decent chance of staying healthy next year, especially if the knicks are safe with him and keep him under 20 minutes or so. i still think he can be an impact player for the knicks even in limited minutes.
i agree that the negatives of his game offensively are he is sometimes turnover prone. whether it be getting stripped or an offensive foul. but he is still an efficient player because he shoots well over 50% and draws fouls.
the knicks have zero low post scoring besides amare. unless we expect chandler to develop a post up game this late in his career lol.
spurs winning it all this year btw. it actually makes me feel better knowing we had no chance against the heat/spurs, rather than thinking we blew a legit chance at a title by losing to the pacers.
I certainly here ya, on Bargs has some questions about his game as well, though. I'd take the risk though.
hibbert is a monster. i'm a little less upset with chandler now that i realize how great hibbert is. i think he may just be the best all around center in the league.
Stat can play center, and his ability to hit the mid-range jump shot would actually have the same effect of pulling hibbert away from the rim. The lineup of Stat, Melo, Cope, Shump and Prigs was super effective for this team, but simply wasn't utilized enough. This series was as much about Woodson being very stubborn with his line-ups and being uncreative than it had to do with talent.
All Hail The New York Giants!!
Amare isn't that good of a one on one player. His jump shot has fallen off of late, and hes seemingly always having to dribble to much to get to the basket, which only increases his chances of easily getting it slapped away, which he does all the time it seems. With both players being injury prone, i'd rather have the guy who dosen't rely on explosion to be here, as the more injuries and age pile up, the less and less Amare is gonna be effective.
