Those comments by Kendrick are juss plain ignorant.....ig'nant actually.

As for Amar'e's comments, he's improved alot as a player, but he's still not better than Pau. And the few players in the league that are better than Pau know better than to call him soft (w/the main reason being that it's not even true anymore, and hasn't been for a few yrs now: Pau's toughness shows itself in ALL areas on defense).

Really, if people cared to see all of Pau's play where there's no statistical reward, the media would be saying that Amar'e juss pwned himself. But as it is, he's in NYC, where talking out of one's ass isn't only forgivable, it's encouraged. Especially if you can sound cool while doing it.

EDIT: Sorry, the Raptors bad play at halftime had clouded my judgement.

What I should've said is that while Amar'e has improved alot as a defender and go-to guy, to the point that I feel he's now a better overall player than Pau (but its still a marquee matchup of course, as they're both bonafide all-stars), he's the only player ahead of Pau who is silly enough to call'em out as if he's still soft. The only time Pau was ever soft was the '08 Finals, when Boston's killer defense had caught everyone off guard & such.

The laughable Raptors bad halftime score + silly comments all clouded my judgement for a time! Sarry!

Pau is not soft, he is skilled. Every big should play like King kong to be ''tough'' or what? How strong and athletic Amare is, he cant even rebound and play D right...Mr. Tough.

Amare talking shit. I wonder what he'll say and what people will say when the Knicks get knocked off in the first round.

"How are you soft and average 10 rebounds?" chimed in Odom.

It's worth noting Gasol and the Lakers eliminated both Perkins (when he was on Boston) and Stoudemire (when he was on Phoenix) from the playoffs last season and he averages more rebounds than Perkins (7.9) and Stoudemire (8.3) as well.

Perkins and Amare are jealous of him, 2 rings to none

Perkins has a ring from 2008, but I know what you're getting at.

"Soft" is a funny term.

It's used almost exclusively by loud, shit talking players with limited ability and a need to be loud to try to create some sort of image or edge.

You don't need to yell or be mad or bitch to be hard. Winning is hard. Deferring is hard. Working hard and sharing the spotlight to attain the highest of goals is hard.

Amare is a fucking clown. Always has been. Amare is soft.

He might not have said soft, but he isn't afraid to express his thoughts, he got at Odom last year too.
