07:06 AM ET 05.27 | After somewhat of a nightmare season, Amar'e Stoudemire will return to a dream. [Stoudemire] will resume working out with Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon for the second summer in a row, according to his training adviser Travis King. King said the workouts will take place sometime in August at Olajuwon's ranch outside Houston. It's not clear if Tyson Chandler will join him, which was on the table in 2012. Olajuwon has turned his full-court basketball gym into an NBA player development center during the summers, and he reportedly charges $50,000 a week for private instruction. He has worked one-on-one with Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and LeBron James. Stoudemire will continue to build on the post-up moves and defensive maneuvers he learned from Olajuwon last summer.

Way to go Amare. I wish he had better knees, unfortunately.

Learning from the best can only help but his knees may prevent him from taking what he learns from the Dream and then implementing it on the court. Hakeem also played defense.

Why would he do that? Would you leave all of that money on the table? I wouldn't.

As I said in this repeat thread the other day.WORK ON YOUR DEFENSE......F offense

BINGO! Like he ever had a problem on the offensive side of the basketball. This is like a boxer learning to punch faster in order to make up for is glass jaw.

Can't stay on the floor long enough to showcase his new post moves so what's the point?
