Hakeem Olajuwon has been helping NBA players improve in the post for the last few years working with Kobe Bryant, Amar’e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire, Dwight Howard, and LeBron James. Dream says that all of the players that came to him showed great commitment.
When asked what players he thinks would benefit from his training – to acquire more post moves – he names Clippers big man Blake Griffin as the one who would most benefit, and also mentions that Kevin Durant could use more post moves.
The player that needs to, Blake Griffin. If you look at Blake, he’s very explosive, but he needs that move to get to the rim to finish. You seen in the playoffs, once they cut off opportunity baskets, then he becomes limited...I’m gonna give him all these moves so he can finish, take him to a whole different level.
