Amar’e Stoudemire has just admitted to the New York Daily News that he was never taught how to play defense- before working with his current head coach Mike Woodson.
“I’ve never been taught defense in my whole career. So to now have a coach who actually teaches defense and teaches strategies and knows positioning and posture and how to guard different plays, it’s going to be helpful.”
He is currently working with Hakeem Olajuwon to improve his game, and assuming he does so soon, he ought to be off the bench in no time.
