I agree with pzabby, but player like Amare would be a beast in Europe, no question at. Rich man's Batiste, sounds like a best possible Euroleague sign.

Howard would kill it, but not as much as may some people think. a lot of European bigs are smaller, and at the same time a lil faster and some of them can hit from deep. Howard never played great D against them, in FIBA games he was kinda clumsy, and as I said before, I think thats why coach K brought Odom to play center in the last world cup. On offense Howard would be a way better version of Big sofo. He would be a beast, but I think Amare should be a little better.

I'd bet he's joking since he mentioned Israel and "converted" to Judaism last summer.

I read an article several days ago about how Amare specifically didn't even think about going overseas yet.

But then it was brought up to him and he's seeing guys like Deron Williams, possibly Kobe and other players considering it so he's probably more inclined to do so.
