Video: Stoudemire talks working out with Hakeem Olajuwon

Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 06: Amare Stoudemire #1 of the New York Knicks reacts after he dunked in the first half against the Miami Heat in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 6, 2012 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

For the past few years, NBA big men (and a few wings like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James) have been making a pilgrimage to Houston to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon like it’s the Holy Land of post play.

Why? What is it like? Amare Stoudemire was down there recently, and wherever Stoudemire goes his video crew goes (even when he gets engaged). So here is a sneak peak as you see Stoudemire practice some spin moves (in Stocktonesque shorts) while JaVale McGee looks on. Then Stoudemire talks about the experience.
