Hakeem Olajuwon to Visit Knicks It looks like Amar’e Stoudemire had such a positive experience this summer in Texas with Hakeem Olajuwon, he has convinced his teammates to also take part. Stoudemire worked with Olajuwon for two-and-a-half weeks earlier this summer at Olajuwon’s house in Houston, Texas. Stoudemire came away with much more confidence in his post game, something that will go along way not only for him but the Knicks as well. Olajuwon, one of the greatest players in NBA history and inventor of the “Dream Shake” post move, will be flying up to the Knicks training facility in Greenburgh, New York to work with some of the players. He expects Stoudemire to again take part, in addition to Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Marcus Camby. Mike Woodson and Olajuwon played for three seasons together in Houston, and it is Woodson who set up the training sessions between “The Dream” and his Knicks. Olajuwon also offered his opinion on the combination of Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, as he excelled playing along side super star teammates in Clyde Drexler and Ralph Sampson.
