I agree! A young Amare was a flat beast. He had the midrange jumper to go with that freak athletic ability. Which means he could mix it up on KG and even go over the top of KG in ways no PF during that time could. Amare at his best is a beast finisher in transition and in the half court. But even with Amare, Dirk, Webber, McDyess, Sheed, and Timmy, KG would give ALL of them trouble on D. They might get right around their scoring numbers, but the trick is to make them less effcient. And KG was a good enough scorer to make them work on offense and KG and point forward type skills in a 7 foot body.
