From Chris Douglas-Robert's Twitter:
@Amareisreal cuz, just come to the Nets. Tell your agent b. & the world forgot if you didn't make the jump, you would've been a TIGER!
While this just may be friendly banter, CDR is on the right track. After the Vince Carter trade, the Nets were left with no forward to step up an play next to Brook Lopez. Ryan Anderson is now a Magic.
Side thought: Is anyone on Orlando in fact "a Magic"? I guess they'd be Magical or Magicians. But what about players on the Miami Heat...?
Ok... Anyway, Amare Stoudemire would fit in seemlessly with New Jersey right now. There is no true game changer on the team. Devin Harris isn't as dominant as Vince Carter or Stoudemire. CDR hasn't reached that point yet. Terrence Williams is yet to be seen. Lopez is good, but not better than Amare in the paint.
Plus, it's better than having Josh Boone play big minutes.
