Amar’e Stoudemire: No one ever taught me how to play defense

One of the main reasons the New York Knicks have been successful this season is their vast improvement on defense. They have allowed 97.5 points per game, which ranks near the middle of the pack in the NBA. Much of their improvement has come with Amar’e Stoudemire out nursing a knee injury. The Knicks have cooled off a bit as of late, but many wonder if Stoudemire’s return will...

Fab Melo suffers a concussion after bumping his head on a doorway

Being tall ain’t easy. Boston Celtics rookie center Fab Melo stands 7-feet tall. While his height makes playing basketball easier than it would be for someone like me, it can also turn everyday activities into a challenge. Take walking through a standard doorway, for example.

Adrian Peterson wants to play special teams

Simply put, Adrian Peterson is a freak of nature. If you didn’t think so before this season, you need look no further than the way he recovered from a torn ACL. Peterson rushed for over 2,000 yards this year after suffering a major knee injury late in the 2011 season. Very few — if any — players would be able bounce back that quickly and become a legitimate MVP contender. Peterson...

Stan Van Gundy: John wall isn’t good enough for Wizards to build around

One of the reasons the Washington Wizards are off to such a poor start again this season has been the absence of John Wall. A team isn’t going to win many games without its best player, and Washington has won only four of its 29 with Wall having been sidelined with a knee injury for the entire season. To say that the Wizards are missing the former Kentucky star would be an epic...

The New Orleans Saints had one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season, which of course reflects poorly on defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. It was a hectic year in New Orleans between the bounty scandal and the suspension of head coach Sean Payton, so it’s tough to judge anyone based on the past 10 months. At least one Saints player feels as though Spagnuolo is to blame...
