The NBA Mistress:
We have seen video of Amar’e Stoudemire in his ridiculously short shorts and JaVale McGee skyhooking it up, but this week another player from the Denver Nuggets will get a taste of The Dream and it won’t be a fantasy. Kenneth Faried, or as locals like to call him Manimal, will visit Olajuwon this [...]

Hakeem Olajuwon is giving pointers to Nuggets big man JaVale McGee and Knicks star, Amar’e Stoudemire. Olajuwon has a big man camp and recently took the two under his wing to see if he can sprinkle some of his magic onto their games. Stoudemire reportedly paid 50,000 a week to step his game up with [...]
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee has been working out with Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon during the NBA off-season in Houston.
Here he is working on the Dream Shake:
I posted the original of this video a few days ago via NuggetsTV on Youtube, but a writer, @Denbutsu, or RMC (Roundball Mining Company) made this video showing JaVale’s work in slow motion to give fans a better view of JaVale and what he is learning in Houston. As a commenter mentioned on youtube, [...]
Somewhere in the Denver Nuggets team offices, there are a couple of people in the graphic design department slapping their knees and having a good chuckle. The rest of us, though, are just confused. The Nuggets jumped in on the online comic book non-craze by launching Adventures in Nuggets Nation, a graphic novel-like thing on the team's official Facebook page. While much of...
If you are a local you have probably viewed this video a bazillion times, but if by chance you are a Denver Nuggets fan outside of the Rocky Mountain Range, this clearly has your name stamped on it. The video has snippets of Andre Iguodala’s arrival in Denver, in the locker room meeting George [...]
Hola Hollywood! That’s hello in Spanish to me and my American brethren, but for ex-Trail Blazer, current Denver Nugget, and Spanish National Basketball Team member Rudy Fernandez, it’s an ode to the acting persona the dainty Spaniard has created for himself via his style on the hardwood.
I don’t miss Rudy. Call me callous, but any affection I once had for the budding superstar...
With no bona-fide superstar, the Denver Nuggets managed to give the Lakers a run for their money in the 2012 playoffs, forcing a Game 7 in Los Angeles. Playing a team-oriented style of basketball similar to the San Antonio Spurs, the Nuggets (along with the Indiana Pacers) look to usher in a new brand of basketball where you don’t need a “Big Three.”
Their core nucleus is...
Having tucked away the worst season of his NBA career, Amar'e Stoudemire turned to what is being considered divine intervention.
Right, he took his retreating post game to Houston and put it in the hands of Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon. There seems to be a lot of that going around.
So for the reported cost of 100,000 for about one week of around-the-basket tutoring...
Hakeem Olajwon summer workouts seem to include just about everybody in the NBA during the last few years. Last summer we talked about LeBron James learning from Dream, and this summer Dream's talking about his new pupil, Javale McGee.
Maybe this opinion will get people's attention: Olajuwon says McGee should dominate the NBA.
From an article with My Fox Houston:
By now you should realize that JaVale McGee of the Denver Nuggets has been working out with Hakeem Olajuwon — teammate Kenneth Faried joins him next week — along with Amar’e Stoudemire to better his game. Here’s a video of The Dream teaching JaVale some moves: It was hard paying attention with Amar’s short [...]
