Default Dwight vs. Amare (officially)

After all of the Dwight vs. Amare talk, they're finally gonna have a head to head matchup tonight. Not that it'll give a definitive answer, but this'll be really fun to watch and it will show how far Amare has really gotten in his recovery.

thoughts?

Too bad we won't see the old Amare vs Dwight, but it should be fun. I really think that Dwight will have his way with Amare, because Amare is so fould prone, Dwight to much of a load to for Amare to guard.

They probably won't guard each other. It will be Kurt Thomas on Dwight and Tony Battie on Amare.

i agree. Dwight is the best rebounder in the NBA and I think he should continue his beast-like rebounding against amare

Dwight's is right now better than Amare and is still getting better whereas Amare will likely never peak again.

The best way to beat the suns is get all their misses (defensive rebounding).

If Howard has a great game Orlando has a chance

I am more curious to see who is bigger. Everytime I see Dwight, he seems massive, like the biggest dude on earth. amare, I think, has lost some bulk, but he too (especially with the small-ish suns) seems like the biggest dude on earth.

yeah Dwight is also bigger. I think Amare dropped alot of weight since the surgury at least he looks like he did.

Yeah, Dwight was already bigger even before the surgery on Amare. But, I think Amare has more all-around skills than Dwight.
and.. Kurt Thomas is a good defender, but he'll get DOMINATED if they make him guard Dwight Howard.

Well.. looks like they are, just like I thought. There's no way they'd start Kurt on Amare. But speaking of which, Amare looks like a twig when you see a side by side comparison of the two.

Amare has been racking up fouls lately. I don't like his chances against Dwight. We'll see though. You never know.
