Who's had the better rookie season- Yao or Amare? There stats are closer than one might think, although Yao has posted his stats with fewer minutes played per game, and he's already getting the double team treatment. From what little i've seen of Amare i'm guessing he's benefitting from the double teams Marbury has to pass out of.
Hard to say. I think that Amare will be the better player in the longrun, but then again I thought that Yao wasn't going to be that good either.

People in general- with the exception of the writer himself- from the first group. The writer, all alone, forms the second and most impportant group. Surely ths is the weirderst and most conceited notion that ever entered a human brain!" - Frederic Bastiat, The Law, 1850
Funny-- I just recently had a Slam Dunk Contest with myself on NBA Live '05, and (thanks mostly to the fact that Andersen hit less sucky dunks than anyone else-- man, I suck at the Slam Dunk Contest), Andersen won one of the competitions.
