Stoudemire Eager to Show Off Post Moves
Amar’e Stoudemire can’t wait to set up in the post, take an entry pass from Raymond Felton and show some of the moves he learned from Hakeem Olajuwon over the summer.
Stoudemire spent two weeks at Olajuwon’s Houston ranch, learning from the man of 1,000 post moves. He admits he’s a work in progress, so no one should expect “The STAT Shake” right away. But if he can become a legitimate post player, it could lead to Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony coexisting successfully.
“I think it’s going to benefit my career,” Stoudemire said after Sunday’s practice. “It’s going to allow me to develop, become more of a complete player. Something I’ve always been striving for as a player is to have an all-around complete game. I think it’s going to add to my offensive skill.”
