    I think Curry finds out he doesn't have what it takes...
    7.0 minutes per game this season and he's done...

    10-19 minutes because they want to showcase him for a trade at the deadline.

    That's every game, not every 3 rd game.
    Teams like Phoenix foam at the mouth wanting a player like Amir.

    i'm guessing 18-19 but i have a feeling he might be thrown in the starting lineup later in the season to complement sheed

    I'm not sure he'll even make the team. If a top notch leader like Flip Saunders couldn't get anything out of him then there probably isn't much there.

    I voted 10-19 minutes a night cause that suits him and that just enough time in the game for him to make any impact he wants to make towards the game. If they stay consisent, ooooweee thats all i got to say

    Good Point.

    With Flip gone will Amir crumble emotionally? When he looks to the bench and finds Flip's not there?...will he play throught he pain?

    I'll say 3 minutes per game.

    This may sound off base. Although I don't have a great feeling about Amit I do have a feeling Cheik Samb may make an impact this year. Plus he more fits what we need.

    Amir is dropping down the depth chart. At best he'll be the 4th big, at worst, 12th man.

    He has to get some consistent minutes to see if he is progressing, or treading water for this organization. He should get a least 10 minutes and average 15 in order to develop any rhythm that doesn't depend on excessive hyper activity in order to impress.

    Didn't we have a problem with points in the paints? Isn't that all you complain about? Doesn't Amir like to play in the paint? Isn't he damn good in the paint?

    Or are you scared he'll take precious fouls from Sheed et al.

    Someone had to do it. Guess it kind of reflects my pessimism about Amir. I question whether he will play at all.
