The Windy Apple:
Mike Woodson talks to Jonah Ballow of Knicksnow about Carmelo Anthony & Tyson Chandler capturing gold at the Olympics, and Amar’e Stoudemire training with Hakeem Olajuwon.
Woodson on Stoudemire training with Olajuwon: “It’s going to enhance his game tremendously. Hakeem is one of the best low-post guys to ever play the game. I can’t help but think he’s going to be much better when he comes back next season.”

JaVale McGee is currently in Houston working out with NBA great Hakeem Olajuwon. And though the two have only been working out together for a short time, Olajuwon is impressed with McGee. And that much shouldn’t really be surprising. McGee is an athletic 7 footer with the tools to be a very good NBA player.
The surprising part of all this is that Olajuwon doesn’t stop there....

Knicks coach does roll call in the Bronx
Mike Woodson encouraged Amar'e Stoudemire to work with Hakeem Olajuwon this offseason.
JaVale McGee is known for his on court bloopers from missing dunks to running the wrong way down the court, and while JaVale has a tremendous amount of talent, it has went down the wayside because of his low basketball IQ. However, he is spending the summer training with Hakeem Olajuwon who thinks he [...]
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:
At Knicks Journal, we've been keeping a close eye on Amar'e Stoudemire's workouts this month with Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon in Houston. Today brings yet another video clip, exclusively from Team STAT, with an update on Stoudemire's progress.The key to the Knicks' star forward making strides over the last week seems to be his level of motivation this...
Amar’e Stoudemire recently sat down with My Fox Houston to talk about his recent training with former Rockets legend, Hakeem Olajuwon. Stoudemire seems genuinely excited about training with the 2x NBA champ who’s also a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
“It’s always room to improve as a player, to want to be the best is always a common denominator...
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 [...]

Tyson Chandler has arrived in Tanzania on behalf of UNICEF where he’s been playing basketball with the street kids: PHOTOS.
J.R. Smith was spotted playing basketball at Dyckman Park last night in the second round of their playoffs. He arrived fashionably late, missing regulation but suiting up for overtime where he threw down the biggest play of the night-...
I’m sure this NYmag article didn’t mean to make NBA wives sound like superficial image obsessed over-spenders but it did. I think the article was supposed to be about the importance of being fashionable when you’re married to a star and how people pay attention to that kind of thing. But it somewhat when off the rails of that topic–which is fine by me cause that made it much...
In the first month of the season, The Knicks are playing 9 teams straight that have made the playoffs last year. Early on, this is a great test for us. This makes sure we are focused right out of the gate. If we manage to get 7 wins out of the first 9, we will definitely be a 1st or 2nd seed in the east. Following a rough first nine games, we have a cake-walk. 5 out of the last...
