Wow look at the hops on that guy! After looking at that highlight he seems ridiculously athletic and has great instincts. He also looks like he can rebound and has great motor that fits perfectly into CMAs system. He will be able to develop him into a 5 star talent. Need to recruit this man asap!

With each new highlight my feeling that our coaches really let him down increases a bit more. He's not unathletic, had good size, wasn't a twig, and was really team-first and enthusiastic. He could have been something here if the coaches were up to the task.

Was just being sarcastic, but I don't disagree at all. He definitely could have been useful if developed properly.

I think "consistently useful" was Amar's ceiling.

Does anybody else seem to realize that the best way to get popular with the St. John's fanbase is to leave the program?

I mean, we did nothing but complain about Owens while he was here. Most fans cheered his departure. It's revisionist history now, to say that it was a lost opportunity. We were all glad he left.

As an aside about Amar, he was another guy the fans treated terribly during his time here. Literal moans and groans every time he came in off the bench, and literal shouts of "No! No!" every time he touched the ball (even though he was no lock to shoot it). Hey, I don't think he was a great player by any means, but you know he had to hear those reactions, and I'm sure they didn't do much for his confidence. And no, it's not like Yankees fans booing their players (which I don't particularly like either), because at least in the pros, you know what you signed up for. Most of these kids aren't going to the NBA anyway, so booing serves no purpose, IMO.

That being said, the fans who were at his last home game (the double-OT win over Butler without Ponds) did appreciate his performance in that game. Didn't put up great numbers, but his defense and boxing out prevented Butler's big guys from dominating the boards. We wouldn't have won that game without him.
