OLAJUWON TO TRAIN KNICKS STAFF FOR FEW DAYS
Wed, 19 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

If all goes as planned, the New York Knicks will have a frontcourt full of “Dream Shakers.”

Hakeem Olajuwon, one of the best players in NBA history and the architect of the legendary “Dream Shake” post move, will spend a few days training some of their players at the team’s practice facility in Greenburgh, N.Y.

Olajuwon, who will fly from his home in Texas, asserted he is expecting to work out with Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Marcus Camby.

Olajuwon worked out with Stoudemire earlier this summer, training the Knicks center for two-and-a-half weeks in the gym on his 400-acre ranch outside of Houston. Olajuwon, who was in a position to excel alongside superstar squad Ralph Sampson and Clyde Drexler, said there’s no reason Stoudemire and Anthony can’t have similar success playing next to each other.

“They both have to realize that the most important thing isn’t how great you are individually,” Olajuwon recounted. “You’re remembered for how many games you win. So to get to play with another great offensive player should help you. It should make your job simpler. You’ve got to work well together. You can’t be competitors with one another.”

While Olajuwon has taught Stoudemire back-to-the-basket post moves, he said the Knicks’ game plan shouldn’t be simply to post up Stoudemire while Anthony dominates the perimeter.

“It shouldn’t be Amare just staying in the post because he can be a scorer in the paint and outside,” Olajuwon asserted. “It’s a similar thing for Carmelo. He can score in the post and outside. So if Carmelo is in the post, Amare can be at the foul line and he’ll make that shot. If Amare’s in the post, Carmelo can make the shot from the free-throw line, too. They should not be competing against each other; they ought to be complementing one another. They need one another to win.”

But Olajuwon does not think the Knicks need to be a 2-man show offensively. He sees great offensive potential in Chandler, who averaged 11 points per game for the N.Y Knicks last season, 3 above his career average.

“You can see that he has great timing by the way that he rebounds, blocks shots and catches lobs,” he announced. “He’s got great timing and reflexes. I haven’t seen him use any moves of his own, though. But there’s no way a guy with that sort of talent and timing should not have effective moves. So I would like to teach him some moves so he’ll use all of that talent. If you add some moves to all of the talent and energy he’s got, it will open up a whole new door for him. That is what he should be looking to add to go to the next level.” Baseball lines

Chandler is excited about working with Olajuwon. He was scheduled to work with the 2-time NBA champ earlier this summer but had to tug out because of the Olympics.

Olajuwon played with New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson for 3 seasons in Houston, and it is Woodson who set up next week’s training sessions.
