    Next year there's going to be ballerinas running all over the floor. I know Kobe and Lebron improved tremendously from Hakeem's tutelage. You can put those two names on any resume and you'll be set for the rest of your life.

    And yet all 3 are better than any front court players Rockets have on their Roster.

    Sadly, no. Even the mentally challenged Mcgee will give you more offense

    Whats Hakeem going to do? Double Asik's ppg?? That would be a whopping 6 ppg (after doubling).

    yippeee!!!

    I still wouldn't mind seeing what Dream could do for him.

    DMo even more.. he already has a good fundamental post game, he could improve and develop a "DMO'shake" (like the dairy product but more basketbally)

    I think it's more on the players - whether they wanna train with him or not. Hakeem may reach out to a select few, but i think it's ultimately up to the players.

    I like what the Nuggets are doing in developing their young bigs. If any of them get better, Nuggets will be contender.

    I think more and more players are doing it for the novelty of working with the Dream. How much can they improve on their post games? I havent seen any sort of noticeable improvement on any player except maybe Kobe --- how much can those players improve?

    I apprecaite their effort, cant fault them for trying but sometimes people need to be more realistic --- There's only one dream and the reasons behind are more than just work ethic.

    You cant teach talent.

    Kobe definitely did, as well.

    Dwight Howard had shown a vastly improved post game too after working out with Dream, but it seems he didn't keep practicing what he'd learned, or just started half-assing, because he returned to old habits after a while.

    I'd like to see Tim Duncan teaching some youngsters like Olajuwon is right now after he finishes his career with Spurs. With no disrespect to Olajuwon, Duncan's fundamentals seem more solid. Then again, Duncan's a PF and Olajuwon's a C, so albeit small, there are some differences.

    What the hell are you talking about?

    Dream's 'fundamentals' were exceptional, that's how can develop extra moves to fool players.

    It's also on the GM apparently. There's a reason two Nugs players will be working w/Dream-Masai Ujiri.

    If Morey wanted his bigs to work with Dream, he could easily reach out to him and I doubt Dream would turn down the Rox.

    Maybe DM feels working w/McHale should be enough for his bigs.
