Amar’e Stoudemire Trains with Hakeem Olajuwon (VIDEO)

STAT has a Dream.

The Yoda of NBA bigs was helping out Amar’e Stoudemire with his post moves in Houston this week. We’re guessing Amar’e got a little too into character, rocking the short shorts while training with the Knicks’ heart breaker of ’94.

    1st thing…the pum pum shirts g2g bro ur a grown man, 2nd your offensive game is good…not great but good enough, 3rd work on your rebounding and defense there should be no reason people like bargniani has the game of his career on u and you don’t average 11+ rebounds…your 2 gifted 2 sell yourself short bro smh

    Love how Joakim Noah didn’t make a big deal out of training with Kareem but this dude is trying to get attention for this.

  • bike

    It’s becoming pretty obvious that Amar’e is gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Javale and Amare putting the polarization of shorts on display

  • burr

    Looking for a good year from Amare.
    Expect a 20-10(okay fine 9.5) year for him. I feel like being bold :)

    you can’t learn the dream shake, either you got it or you don’t

    Huh, you CAN?

    Why is nobody talk about McGee being there? If dude is able to implement a decent post game to go with his otherworldly athleticism, Den might surprise a few teams out west.

  • fruizm

    those shades….those shorts…..HAHAHA come on Amare, you make it too easy for me!

  • greg

    i know javale being there is just downright scary

    Damn I thought u guys were exaggerating about the shorts. WTH. I like how Dream has on some AI baggy shorts.

    i hope he wears his knick trunks stockton style next season. that old school look is ace lol

    why shouldnt a pro learn that shake? even i can do that and im by far not a pro baller

    Amare’, your feet are SO FAR APART when you’re practicing that spin to the basket that you’re obviously not in the triple threat position. You’re going to spin to the hoop, everyone on the floor will know it. C’mon, man. Work harder.

    amare should get trained by james worthy.the googles,the beard – all he needs is the finese in the post and the grit on the boards.depending on he plays will determine how far the knicks go!

  • krispykreme

    now here’s 1 guy who can actually execute these moves with speed and grace. i like this

    Now if only Hakeem can teach him some D . . . .

  • jedi420

    Defense would be nice, even if he could rebound the ball consistently it would help. I remember in his Phoenix days he would have multiple games in the playoffs getting either 1 or 2 rebounds.. Being 6’10 having those hops and always having the ball in the post, seriously how is it even possible to get 1 rebound in 35-40 minutes?? I think the only person that might be able to answer that is Andrea Bargnani by the way haha..

  • Jono

    Wow. WTF is the guy wearing…

  • azim

    the shorts?!that is all.

    with team usa desperately needing some size upfront, can someone explaon to me why amar’e was not even considered?

  • jinolin

    I would like to see both STAT and Chandler working with Dream… Hope some of this translates to a non-sub-par season at the Garden this year.

    if this works out for mcgee he could be an all star next season.

  • mike

    Javale McGee lacks the hand-eye coordination to ever be a really good offensive player. Serious lack of coordination will always a problem for him

  • ChipS

    Redd, who said he’s trying to get attention? In that case, I guess Kobe and Dwight were just trying to get attention too?

  • Allenp

    You have to get your legs wide on a.post spin to seal that defender on your back.

  • BallsDeep

    Worthy would be better. JWorthy, one of the better offensive PF’s in the game, ever, along with Adrian Dantley. Learn those guys moves eh!

    Somewhere out there….John Stockton saw this video too and is smiling…

    What is he wearing? Dang those shorts are small.

    i guess amare was that kid who didnt wanna be like mike

    @Chips, the difference is Amare brought a camera crew and gave commentary, while all we did was hear about Kobe and Dwight working with the Dream. But Amare is into posting everything he does online. I don’t think Kobe cares for that kind of thing and Dwight doesn’t look like he knows how to work the interwebs.
