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:
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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 [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
The Denver Nuggets recently put out an online comic book called “Adventures in Nuggets Nation”. It stars some Nuggets players, George Karl, and the mascot, Rocky.
Each of the players have their own superhero identities: Hotshot (Gallinari), Tynomite (Lawson), Big Mozzy (Mozgov), Stretch McGee (McGee), Manimal (Faried), and Igoudala (Andre Igoudala — original, huh?).
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 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.

Recent Olympic gold medal winner and NBA all-star, Andre Iguodala, is already talking extension with his new team. The recently traded swingman is under contract with the Denver Nuggets for the 2012-13 NBA season and holds a player option for the 2013-14 season, but is already talking like he’d like to set-up shop in Denver for the long...
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 [...]
Yesterday, the Foot Locker commercial “Tear Away” starring Russell Westbrook and James Harden was a huge hit as it spread on the internet, but this one which highlights Kevin Durant along with Charles Barley and Andre Iguodala to promote the Dream Team Collection is just as spectacular.
Lost in all the hype of Dwight Howard heading to the Lakers was a move that helped another Western Conference team as well. The Denver Nuggets picking up Andre Iguodala is part of the trade that deserves a lot more attention than it is getting.
Iguodala’s game is not one you would immediately think meshes in well with the Nuggets’ style of play. Denver is a run-and-gun...
There was Lin-Sanity last season that swept New York and the NBA world by a fierce storm, but now — from my bird eye view of the Mile High — there’s a fever sweeping the basketball heads of Denver and Colorado. We all are high on AI9. He doesn’t like the name Iggy — it’s [...]
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...
