    J-Kidd does play defense. Not great but he is average-above average. Felton is a tough nosed defedner also not great. And Melo has brought his d up to Average on the ball defense. They wont be top 5 but they can be top 10-12 range

    Watching shows a lot more then stats can. The Knicks are not a good defensive team, they will be better can't hold a candle to quite a few teams.

    They were top 5 last season, but Melo and Stat sat off a lot and it was a condensed season, so we'll see.

    The expectations are visible behind Dwight Howard in LA

    The knicks played excellent defense under woodson. I wish all the people saying no would at least say what they thik will be different. Do you not think they will give as much effort? Any anybody who thinks melo "can't" play D does not know what they are talking about.

    Weren't they top five in defensive points per possession? I may have made that up, but I believe its the case.
    Go Knicks!

    All time

    Im pretty sure the Knicks were outside the top 10 last year in opponents points per game. Isn't that what matters? Isn't the point of playing defense to stop the opposition from scoring?

    That doesn't mean a whole lot. They could never get a stop when they needed to.

    Stoudemire isnt a great defender and Felton, Kidd, and Melo are pretty much useless on D.
    with all due respect the original post said that Stoudemire is a good weakside shot blocker. Felton has always been an above average defender and Melo(as well as J.R.) proved he can play defense under Mike Woodson

    if they are top 5 then that would be higher then their playoff seed.
