He came back from microfracture sugery, which is awesome. He not only came back but he is close to what he was before the sugery.
Amare for president. Okay maybe not president but he is a cool player to admire in my book.
yep, hes awesome. he still can develop his skills since hes only 25, not like nash, he will stay like that til he retires
