Remember how Shaq was the next BIG thing when he faced up against Hakeem and got his ego handed to him on a silver platter of the Dream Shake N Bake. Shaq wanted to take it to the Dream, but still had many parts of his game to develop. On the flip side, Dream was at his prime and showing the young'n how to get it done. The same can be seen in last year's playoff matchup between the Suns and the Spurs. Amare faced Duncan who is clearly at his prime. Duncan dominated him, but Amare still demanded for the ball and would challenge Duncan to react to how he wanted to play. I remember countless dunks on Duncan, but I also do remember how Duncan shut him down when the game was in its critical stages.
Well all I have to say is look at Shaq now.....and if history has its way of repeating itself.....Hack-A-mare will be the next catch phrase and teams will have fits in facing Phoenix Only time will tell...and this kid has plenty of it. They don't call him a Man-Child for nothing.

Don't forget, he was drafted #9 and seems to be progressing at a faster rate than all those draft picks before (Tskitishvili, Hilario for example). He was a lucky Cyprus Creek high skoo product. That's why the NBA GMs, unless they already have loads of talent already, don't like drafting high schoolers--it's like taking a risk--loads of potential or unwashed potential. Kobe, T-Mac,Jermaine, and now Amare--high skoolers are really the fad! Amares' gonna be a bad boy one day--yup. He's a master dunker, athletic and defensive. He's got that baby fat, one-on-one skills and rebounds. He's qualified to be a star, if not next year. Funny thing was--the Clips could have taken him at before, but they took Chris Wilcox instead. Chris Wilcox? We could bring Amare to LA, and they draft another sore loser? Plz, this is getting frustrating watching the CLips draft flukes each and every year. They need to change. Amare would have been the solution as PF (hopefully Brand could play small forward). This man's good, he's got tha skills, what will we see next?
