Kobe Works Out with The Dream

Like the guy needs to get any better.

The Dream is also tutoring Thabeet.

Quote:
Monday Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant was in Houston for a two-hour workout with Olajuwon.

Olajuwon said Bryant reached out to him for help with his moves in the post.

"He gave me the biggest compliment," Olajuwon said. "(He said) You are the best (at the) mid-post and post move.

"He wanted me to show my moves to him."

Olajuwon said his style of play in the paint is really suited for a guy like Bryant.

"In my mind most of my moves for a guy (with) that agility can use it better than the big guy," Olajuwon said. "Because my moves are not really for the big guy.

"It's for the guards and small forwards. So he would benefit most on the post because of his agility.

"It was so much fun because how he picks it up. I worked with him for two hours, step by step."

Olajuwon expects Bryant to be even better than he was last season when he led the Lakers to the NBA Championship.

"Adding those moves to his game, watch out for him this year," Olajuwon said. "I understand his dedication. His desire to win and stay on top.

"That's what I respect most about him."

By the way, Olajuwon said he would never have held one-on-one sessions like this if he was still playing.

"You don't want to give them your secrets," Olajuwon said.

As far as guards go, Kobe's got the best post game in the league, and now this. Dude's a fucking competitor, I love it.

Very depressing. Gotta hand it to Kobe for just plain being smart though.

I'm actually shocked that neither Bosh, Sam OR BC ever thought of bringing in Hakeem as a big man coach.

It's the least he could have done for the Raps after stealing our money.
