When i first heard Amare say that, i just bust out laughing,"no one taught me defense", who says that.Dude just try your best to keep the other guy in front of you, stupid, what's there to learn.As much as i dislike D'antoni, i'm in his corner on this one, Stat give's literally no effort on defense,(To this day) and to blame a coach for that is just idiotic.And if he's talking being taught the defensive sets his teams running, i'm sure he was giving a playbook like everyone else, that's still on him.
