Do I blame D'Antoni too much for the Knicks defensive problems?

Knickerblogger disagrees. It is not D’Antoni’s fault as his roster just lacks talented defenders.

Definitely an interesting argument. I just think there is more D’Antoni could do with this team. There always just seem to be so many players open under the basket, so many uncontested offensive rebounds and so many easy lay-ups. So many players seem to have career nights against the Knicks these days. I just question how much D’Antoni is focusing on defense with this team.  I do, however, completely agree he can only do so much with this roster. In particular, the knicks roster is screaming for big men who could clog the middle and get rebounds. No defensive genius could magically turn anyone on this roster into the center they desperately need.
