Amar’e Stoudemire making impression on Nets’ Jarrett Allen
By almost any objective measure, last season was a big step forward and a career year for Jarrett Allen, yet he still lost his starting spot to DeAndre Jordan and found his name in trade rumors.
Brooklyn’s young big man is determined to take his game to the next level, and he won’t have many better role models to learn from than Amar’e Stoudemire, recently hired as a Nets player development assistant.
Allen posted career-highs in scoring (11.1) and rebounding (9.6), and was even better in the bubble, helping carry the Nets to a surprising 5-3 record in the restart games and seventh-place finish in the East. He also formed one of the league’s top lob duos with Spencer Dinwiddie (40 dunks), something Stoudemire was masterful at while playing for years with new Nets head coach Steve Nash.
“Amar’e has been great so far,” Allen told The Post. “He’s been giving me tips when we’ve been working out, he’s been giving me little pointers on how to elevate my game. Showing me some post moves, just telling me about his mentality on rebounding, basically those things so far.”
Stoudemire was a pick-and-roll terror for years playing with Nash. If Allen (and Jordan and Kevin Durant) can develop even a reasonable facsimile of the chemistry that Stoudemire and Nash had while terrorizing the Western Conference, it would bode well for the Nets.
