Legends Walt Frazier and John Starks Want Knicks to Improve Defense

New York Knicks legends Walt “Clyde” Frazier and John Starks have a penchant for playing stifling defense on their opponeents, and they know first-hand how effective that style of play can be. Frazier won two NBA championships in the 1970 and 1973, and Starks was a member of the legendary defensive Knicks teams during the 1990s.

However, both players do not have the seal of approval with the current Knicks team’s effort on the defensive end of the court. Frazier and Starks would like to see the squad put more emphasis on defense as they try to make deep playoff runs in the next several seasons. They would prefer if the Knicks follow suit and develop into a lock-out team such as the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls.

In the 2010-2011 NBA season, the Knicks allowed the opposition to score an average of 105 points per game with nearly 47% shooting from the field.

    While the Knicks try to upgrade there defence, I would suggest they try to hire Dennis Rodman to teach their big men the fine art of rebounding. He might be a character but I think he might change if someone showed him some love and confidence in his God giving ability to rebound. After his recent induction to the Hall of Fame, I think he would be flatttered with this jester of love. Just food for thought.
