Default Amares defense

i dont agree with how theyre using him on the offensive end and hes not at total fault for stinking it up there but his defense is frustrating as ever(or as usual).. its not just last night either but everynight.

couple small things that add up

he never closes out on the weak side and if he does he just jogging and not extending his hand to block the shot or even make it look like he cares enough to close on the guy. its a quick wave to the defender and see ya


i understand guys letting guys get easy fast breaks if theyre ahead of them and dont think they have a chance or dont want to pick up a foul or even forget it altogether from time to time and let them have it. amare lets everybody go on the break, you rarely see him go after a guy on the break if ever

boxing out isnt something he does consistently. if he gets a rebound its because he out jumped for it and got higher then anyone else, not because he boxed out most of the time. shaq is just as bad but his size lets him grab more.


guys back him down like hes james posey, can handle some big guys here and there but most of the time youll have your way and atleast get a good look if anything else.

im sure theres things i missed

According to fatman32 he plays good defense because of his blocks per game and is a good rebounder, just Shaq and Porter are holding him back lol

I've been saying this for awhile now.

I'm a BULLS fan and all the fans on the forum want Amare.

I don't.

His attitude, heart, and D need a lot of work.

Unfortunately you cant really work on heart. You either have it or you don't.

There is no passion for the game if you arent playing it, thats just called being a straight up nerd.
