Couple observations...
1. Amare might have improved his game more than anyone in the NBA. He is so efficient in the midrange now, so different from that tape
2. Conversely, Dwight Howard has the EXACT same game as he did in high school, he's just more mature.
3. Dare I say that (GULP) Andre's film is the most impressive of the three?

Andre is the most impressive passer by a long shot based on those videos. Amare played with a lot of aggression and looked to dominate. I hope that Andre can show some more of that on the court. It's kind of a mystery (to me) why he would not have averaged a lot more points and boards in high school. I guess I hope that Andre does not come in like Rudy and be too deferential to the older players. If we only have him one year, I hope he comes in and plays like he can.

Amare was quicker and had a better jump shot. Andre is stronger, more imposing. Hard to tell who has the better handle since Amare seems to dribble high in the video.

I love this embed Youtube feature!:D

Is it just me or do half of them not work because they're "restricted from playback on certain sites"?

I don't think Andre played a ton of minutes at STM.

Amare reminds me of those players that opponents stare at during warm up drills. :cool:

Andre did the best thing leaving high school for some real competition. Not certain if he really will be a one and done, because I think Alex will be a better player next year. In fact, Alex may be the one to keep an eye out for early entry. He is the biggest benefactor of Drummond's arrival, at least immediately. Who will stop him now that he won't be double teamed?

Andre definitely looks the best out of the three. He is by far the best passer and has the most handle. He is also biggest of the 3 coming out of high school at 260. This is just going to be a fun year.
