I just worry about wearing down or not being able to force the pace of a game and getting ran all over. If this team can get every one to both get and stay healthy, they could make some real noise this year.
That's why I think the Amare injury actually works in this team's favor. In about 6-8 weeks when he comes back either Camby, Thomas and/or Sheed should be injured. Amare comes back and works as a role player while Melo remains the #1 scorer.
