Amar'e Ready To Commit To Defense

Amar’e Stoudemire is motivated to improve defensively.

“Defense is the key to win championships, that’s something I’m dedicated on also, to become a much, much better defensive player,” Stoudemire said. “It’s going to happen. It’s a matter of preparation and practice and getting that chemistry down on that end of the court.”

Stoudemire trained with Hakeem Olajuwon for two weeks in Houston.

“There’s so many moves that I picked up from Hakeem,” he said. “Just developing my post [game] has been phenomenal for me. When I came out of high school, I was thrown the ball and [told] do what you do best. I never got a chance to develop my game as far as [in the] post. Working with Hakeem is gonna be a great advantage for me.”

Whaaaaa?!?

The only thing you get paid for is to develop your game, but you never had a chance.

i just got done defending amare in another thread, but i'm with the skeptics here.

if his defensive issues were a matter of effort, then that's garbage.

if, however, they are a product of a low b-ball iq (which would be my theory), then i'm not sure there's much that can be done over the course of a summer.

we'll see, though.

Here's the irony; you can defend Amare, but he can't defend you.
