But if there was any way to achieve it, I would guess it would be the right kind of conditioning for his legs.
I see what you're saying, I misunderstood. I suppose he could improve his overall conditioning, but at least he's not like Yao who's grabbing his shorts after one time up the floor.
Also, Dirk comparisons aside, I think we tend to lose site of the fact that he does some pretty amazing things for a 7 footer. I got a chance to check out yesterday's game and those reverse and 1's and off ballance shots in the lane were a thing of beauty.
