NBA Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon is set to train with JaVale McGee, Timofey Mozgov, Serge Ibaka – reported earlier today — and in addition to Amar’e Stoudemire, he plans on working with Tyson Chandler in the post.
Olajuwon worked with LeBron James last year and many noted LeBron’s improved skills in the post, which is why Coach Woodson wants both players to train under the legend, which will probably not happen until September.
Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler are supposed to train with Olajuwon later this offseason. Woodson has said he wanted Stoudemire and Chandler to improve their game in the post. Olajuwon, one of the best centers in NBA history, is known for his footwork and array of moves under the basket.
“Dream has been working guys out over the past few years,” Woodson said. “I know he worked with LeBron. Dream and I’ve had some conversations and we’re going to try to put something together with all our big guys.”
