the problem is willingness and ability to take pride in defense night in night out.
This is what seperates the boys from the men. I don't think you can teach heart and the will to play defense, look at Alonzo Mourning. He has desire, he may not be quick enough anymore but he loves defense, he loves blocking small guys and tall players!
Eddy Curry on other hand plays defense because he HAS to, it's like at a point where he almost cries because defense for him is too hard. As much as the Knicks organization is trying to imply defense for him, it's too hard.
Stephon Marbury is finally understanding what he needs to be a true point guard. FINALLY!!!!!!!
