“There’s so many moves that I picked up from Hakeem. Just developing my post game has been phenomenal for me. When I came out of high school, I was just thrown the ball and they said, ‘Do what you do best.’ I never got a chance to develop my game as far as a post player. So now working with Hakeem, it’s going to be a great advantage for me.”
Tommy DeeI think we are all looking forward to seeing Amar’e utilize a dump down post game and take advantage of one on one opportunities. It will also open up his jump shot. Last year was a very trying year for Amar’e, who has been sort of off the radar this off season. But if you recall last year, it’s great to have him working out and not having any issues with his back. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Amar’e Stoudemire is absolutely the key to the Knicks’success this year.
