According to the New York Times' Off the Dribble Blog, Amar'e Stoudemire took a shot at Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni.
Stoudemire, who played for D'Antoni both with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks, told reporters at Knicks practice, "I've never been taught defense in my whole career."
D'Antoni has been credited by some as a revolutionary offensive coach but he is rarely given credit on the defensive end. Stoudemire hasn't built up much of a reputation as a defender, despite his All-Star credentials.
Knicks Coach Mike Woodson has the Knicks currently at 21-10.
"I think having a defensive coach for the first time in my career is going to help," said Stoudemire of Woodson.
