Amar’e Stoudemire Says He’s Ready to Become a Defensive Stopper

I laughed as well, but at least he is trying to get better and that is all you can really ask for.

You don’t become a lock down defender overnight, but Amar’e is taking baby steps.

In addition to post touches on offense, he wants to be part of the defensive identity of the Knicks, he told the New York Post.

“Defense is the key to win championships, that’s something I’m dedicated on also, to become a much, much better defensive player,” he 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.”

The Knicks are an entertaining bunch, I give them that.
