Amar'e Stoudemire isn't the only Knick who will be training this offseason with Hakeem Olajuwon, whose ranch outside of Houston has become one of the hottest summer destinations for NBA players because of the Hall of Famer's post-up and defensive coaching.

Carmelo Anthony, who moved to power forward regularly this past season, will also be working with "The Dream," according to sources. It's not clear at this point if Melo will join Stoudemire in the same one-week workout session in August. Their frontcourt teammate Tyson Chandler will not be coached by Olajuwon, according to his reps.

Good on Carmelo, developing that post game, this will be the 2nd off-season he's worked with Hakeem to improve it.




But here's some more Knicks News...

Sebastian Telfair is on the Knicks radar

 

:smh:  

Keep doing moves like this Knicks, with every move like these last few you've made the closer and closer you hopefully push Carmelo to the Lakers :laughing:

I wonder if Rockets fans think Melo will be going to Houston in 2014 also?

He has a great post game, working with him the first time really showed. He has been able to play power forward pretty effectively against most teams.

Does it really matter? He never takes himself down in the post anyway. He already has a great post game, he just loves to shoot tough jumpers rather than play effectively.

Actually he does.

But with Amare and Tyson and Kenyon, it's always someone in the way

Kobe would be a fantastic mentor to Carmelo, especially cause they're already so close that you know Melo would more than likely truly value his advice and take it to heart (unlike Howard). As late in Melo's career as it is (and it's not exactly too late), I still believe Kobe could really help mold him in areas where he can still grow tremendously as a player like more on the mental side of things & raising his competitiveness & fire to another level.

Actually Carmelo would prefer to play from the post especially from the power forward position, the problem is Stoudamire or another 4 was preventing or at times Martin.


But moving Amare to the bench seemed to be the solution caue it allowed Carmelo to be where he was most effective. 

But Woodson seemed content once Amare was back to play him at the 4 off the bench while keeping Carmelo at the 3.  Even when Chris Copeland was nailing shots and it would have been better to sit Carmelo at the 4 and Copeland at the 3, Woodson would sit Copeland, put Carmelo at the 3 and keep Stoudamire at the 4.


And now this year the Knicks have gotten Bargnani as their starting 4 which means more often than not 90% of the time Carmelo is gonna spend is at the 3 position which is NOT where he wants to be.

So him going and learning from Hakeem for a second year does say something about him because he's doing it despite the fact he's probably gonna see little to no minutes at the 4 this year.

Agreed fully.

Playing at the 4 has nothing to do with being down in the post. He gets iso's all the time and he always try to take off the dribble or just shoot with the man in his face. Very rarely you see him put his back to the basket and take the game down to the post, and when you do he is much more effective.

 

Melo loves to take jump shots and that is no secret. With his talent and skills that is completely fine since he is one of the best jump shooters out there off the dribble or just spot up with a man in his face. However, he needs to learn to take his game down low to get things started and to get easy points. When kobe goes cold what do you see him do? Get down low in the post and make some shots, or start attacking the rim. Problem with Melo is when he does this he most likely just went 2-11 from the field. He takes to long to get down low and when he does his trips are too few and far between. Melo would be a much better player if he was more aggressive from the start and went down low more often. He might not be as good as a finisher as Lebron, but when he attacks the basket, throws in some post plays, and on top of that with his outside shooting his offensive game is far beyond that of the greatest player in the game.
