Key phrase being "one on one moves". He was incredible against Duncan, but he still benefited hugely from the Suns' dangerous shooters. Has Amare ever been consistently double-teamed like Tim? Notice how we simply refused to leave any of those shooters open? We left Duncan on an island and said, 'good luck'. I would love to see what a healthy Duncan does to Amare if none of his little teammates come over to double-team. Tim did average about 30 before they started doubling out of desparation.
