    Default Amare and Hakeem part II

    Amare going to train with The Dream again this summer and Tyson might also. Reality is Amare and TC getting better, TC on the offensive side of the ball and Amare fitting in as a traditional low post PF rebounding and playing better D allowing Melo to go back to SF is the only way the Knicks can get to the next level and win that ring.

    Amar’e Stoudemire to Train With Hakeem Olajuwon Again This Summer


    After an injury-plagued 2012-13, Amar’e Stoudemire will prepare for ’13-14 by working out with none other than the great Hakeem Olajuwon. Amar’e Stoudemire will resume working out with Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon for the second summer in a row, according to his training adviser Travis King. King said the workouts will take place sometime in August at Olajuwon’s ranch outside Houston. It’s not clear if Tyson Chandler will join him, which was on the table in 2012.Olajuwon has turned his full-court basketball gym into an NBA player development center during the summers, and he reportedly charges $50,000 a week for private instruction. He has worked one-on-one with Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and LeBron James. Stoudemire will continue to build on the post-up moves and defensive maneuvers he learned from Olajuwon last summer. The big reasons behind the collaboration were: (1) to give the Knicks a low-post presence, allowing Chandler to be the go-to pick-and-roller; and (2) to improve the spacing between Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, who had tended to crowd the court in the midrange area.”

    Both of them should learn alot bout D from Olajuwon he was one of just few players @ this position who had alot games with 10 or + blocks with more than 10 rebs too.

    Oneal Ewing key defenders wich were simply completely outplayed by Hakeem

    finals 1995 it was 4-0 but who know if Nick Anderson who missed 4 ft's in a row will hit that how this series would be ended


    last game also won by Rockets by putback of Olajwuon Orlando in that season was almost same team as Chciago in 96 when they were 72-10

    I love Stat but yeah he probably could benefit from some time with Oak and Mason teaching him how to box out and rebound...he'll never be a great defender but he needs to learn how to defend better than he is now..

    Really what is this going to accomplish, because of his limited PT this year he is still in phase 1 of his training with Hakeem he can't teach him anything new because he hasn't mastered what he learned last summer.

    This is a hype story possibly plugged by Amare's agent or Knicks front office people trying to sell hope! And not for nothing but honestly at this point with Amare talk is real cheap! There is not going to be any news relevant about him till he steps back on the floor and produces!

    Hype or not I'm glad he's going, shows a great attitude imo. I hope TC goes for the same reason. He did learn something at the Dreams camp, like that back to the basket hook shot after backing his man down towards the basket.

    Not sure if he can be the type of rebounder that Mase and Oak were, just doesn't have the strength and big body those guys have. Maybe he can learn something from TC with those tip out rebounds that TC gets, saw a couple of times last season where Stat tipped a rebound but they went out of bounds instead of to a teammate.

    I've been wanting Chandler to learn offense (getting better at defense would be great too) from Hakeem. Chandler isn't awkward or anything on offense, it's just not something he can do consistently now. I think he can be smooth with some moves that can make him much better on offense.

    Another publicity stunt to sell season-tickets to see "Tyson / Stat / Melo" ....

    Hakeem Olyjuwon has another offseason to teach Stat how to be more tolerant with ball-hoggers.
    LOL

    I'd say I really appreciate Amare's desire to become a better player in order to contribute more to this team, but the main problem isn't his offense (offensively he looked great this season), but whether or not he can stay healthy for a longer period of time. I realize he'll never again be a 30+ minutes guy, but will he be able to play 25 minutes a game and avoid any major injuries? And obviously, he's defense is still a question mark, we've seen some improvement but we've also seen that he's lack of defensive awareness results in constantly getting into foul trouble.

    problem of stat is that he spend to much time with pringles with nash.


    Hakeem is better player that Tyson Stat combined.

    Look even @ Bosh he is now shooting 3s more often

    Haslem shooting jumpers just like STAT did that in PHX

    Chanlder in offence? well he can shoot jumper but he is doin that once per few games

    he should start to play under the glass box out put backs tips not just dunks watch Dunan watch other games during playoffs

    Tyson was good in RS but gone in playoffs

    Birdman doing better than Chandler against the Pacers? Hibbert is averaging 23 PPG on 51% shooting with 12 rebounds per game against the "vaunted" Heat big men. Hibbert averaged 13 PPG on 47% shooting with 10 rebounds per game against us (i.e. Chandler). Man, we can't even get a troll who knows his stuff enough to troll us. C'mon! KO deserves a better troll than this!

    Best not to answer a troll. I never respond to the dud(e)'s posts.

    Look it's not hard to shoot 100pct when every shot is a dunk.

    He picks on TC when he led the league in FG pct in 2011 and he was second to DeAndre Jordan this year with a 63.8 but he didn't have enough shots to qualify because of the games he missed.

    Not making excuses for Chandler but he did have that virus in the Pacers series and that neck problem that probably caused a sub-par performance in the playoffs.

    I wish I could tell him he needs to work on his D and get strong for 82+ games. His offense is serviceable as it is
