Blocking shots doesn't mean you're a great defender, but it is defense and it does energize the team, himself as well. He wasn't a big liability during that time.

    After the infamous glass injury to the hand happened, he did show heart the game he returned and helped the team win, hopefully he can do this all season, which might happen with the consistency our team has been bringing.
    Yeah and after Woodson's take over there were flashes of solid D from Amare. Of course, we can't settle for flashes, but I think when all 10-12 players in the rotation are committing there won't be anywhere for STAT to hide he's going to have to put up.

    I just mentioned that today to my homies.

    Lin b!tched up and sat. STAT played with the hand wrap and dropped a double-double.

    Well I say that D'Antoni's defense was too reliant on individual one-on-ones, at least that's what inadvertently happened. Woodson has us playing team oriented defense where all contribute and help.

    Once STAT gets that down; his size, speed, quickness, and hops will be an addition. He won't be on an island guarding CENTERS.

    Remember that?
