ďI think itís great,Ē DíAntoni said Thursday after the Los Angeles Lakersí practice. ďI think itís great that heís listening. He might have forgotten that Mike Woodson was also running the defense the last year I was there, so I donít know if he just didnít pick that year to listen.Ē

Woodson prob only has 20 min of practice to coach defense. Plus, he was bound by Mike D's offensive philosophy.

I can't stand that he is the Lakers head coach.

sounds like amare's the one getting straight clowned. basically made himself look like an idiot, and not for the first time, either.

say what you want about d'antoni's system, but he handled that exchange perfectly.

Can't believe you guys are trying to clown D'Antoni here. If Amare gave a f@ck about defense, he'd play it. It's like 80% effort.

LOL at defense being 80% effort. Why don't you go and try really hard and guard Chris Paul, I'm sure that will work.

Amare has been played out of position for his entire career(remember no college) in a system that would often give up easy baskets in order to start a fastbreaks. It really not a wonder why he isnt a good defender, defense was freakin discouraged for his first 6 years in the NBA.

Really? Be serious man, he's never cared to play defense.

Don't make up excuses. You don't think he could learn if he tried? There are hundreds of coaches or legends who would teach him.

He goes to Hakeem for offense but can't find anybody for defense?

well first of all, there is a difference between not emphasized and discouraged.
second, I cannot believe anyone would defend a long standing league vet acting like hes never had the opportunity to learn basic defensive positioning and such. Sure, defense is more than effort, but it starts with effort. The problem with dudes like a'ma'r'e' is that they were raised to think of basketball as the showboating offensive stuff. no one gets a highlight reel for a great boxout or denying a pass.

It starts and ends with attitude, and amare doesnt have it

The people trying to clown D'Antoni on this one are clowning themselves. Amare clowned himself.

You and I cannot guard Chris Paul because we do not have the talent and athleticism to do so. Amare has the talent to guard any power forward in the league. Because at one point he was the most athletic player in the league. He really just doesn't care and when it comes to guarding guys like Tim Duncan it mostly came down to Amare being an idiot.
