"In an effort to improve his post game, Amar'e Stoudemire plans to spend two weeks working with NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon next month, according to MSG Network's Alan Hahn.
"The cost of learning The Dream Shake? $50,000 a week is what we were told. Now, we don't know of Olajuwon is charging Stoudemire full price, but Amar'e plans to get bang for his buck. He said he plans to memorize every lesson so he can expand his game to include one or two go-to moves on the post," Hahn said.
"Stoudemire has been known as mostly a pick-and-roll player who developed a mid-range jumper in 2010-11. Mike Woodson wanted him to be more of a threat in the post, so he asked his former Rockets teammate to spend some time with Stoudemire. Tyson Chandler is also expected to spend some time with Olajuwon after the Olympics."
Olajuwon was once nicknamed "The Black Hole," because if you threw the ball to him in the post it would never come back out. You can argue that the Knicks already have a player like that in Carmelo Anthony. Hopefully, STAT will focus on learning some quality post moves without having to dominate the rock to succeed."
