    And might I add:

    Figure out how everyone else is getting taller and making him look like he's still 6'9".

    That's a good description of Amir. I like that about him though.

    Darko, on the other hand, was the puppy who came out with his tail between his legs dribbling pee on the floor.

    Amir looked normal to me. In fact, he puts himself out of position quite often ... just what people should expect from a player with limited on court experience who's finally getting a chance to play regular minutes.

    Amir also makes great plays with his athleticism. He did a little of that last night as well.

    By the way, Amir cannot play "under control". He can't do that right now. He simply has to play up to the speed and level of the NBA game. Sink or swim.

    He needs to move with his quickness, get some weight, and move his feet and keep his hands and arms in a certain position. He'll be ok. Rasheed and the rest of the team won't allow him to sink.

    with his hands, it wouldn't help him if he was 8' 3
    I can't stand the height discussion about Amir- he doesn't look one inch taller than 6'9 and he's definetely way shorter than Sheed.

    This dude's a dream.

    Not sure the grading system will be a long-term motivater, but I do like how it allows the players to get credit for things that players don't normally get rewarded for.

    I'm still waiting for the next up to date pic of AJ standing next to Sheed/Mc Dyess or Tay that enables us to compare their heights :)

    I give this post a C-!

    I'd have liked Curry to work in that sitting was more comfortable for him and he likes to relax during the games.

    a lot of people keep saying amir looks 6'9" still but he's clearly taller than Tay and not far off sheed (who is most likely 7'0" and not the 6'11" he is listed at)

    We gave up a disastrous 71 pts, and some one didn't grade out well defensively. ?
    WOOOO, tough crowd.

    I'd like to comment on anything at this point LOL, but the box score is not providing me with very good analysis. That being said, the AA bandwagon is open for everyone who forgot/choose not go get on. Seats are limited so don't waste time.

    From that one game his defense has improved over last season in my opinion. I think thats whats going to keep him in the starting lineup. Either that or go with McDyess and start handing out pillows to the fans like they do on late plane flights.
