Busy summer for Gortat

It's all in Polish so apart from Gortat's smiling mug there is not much for you ;)

Nice as I am - I'll give you some details:

Gortat and Siler just finished a 6-day mini-training camp with "The Dream" and the Hammer is all smiles. He said that he worked with many great players and coaches but some things were completely new to him.

He said that some of the fakes and moves he will try to incorporate into his game - and some were just impossible to make for anyone else than Hakeem... He also boasted that there were only 6 players training 1-on-1 with Olajuwon: Kobe (2 days), Smith (1 hour), Howard (3days), Okafor (2 hours) and hmmm... The Hammer for almost a week. (basically he seems to be in love with Hakeem, he is smiling like a little kid all the time LOL)

Gortat said that his pick'n'roll play last season was probably Top3 in the league, still his back-to-the-basket game was bottom5 so that's what all his effort went into so far this offseason.

He also confirmed he will play in EuroBasket for Poland, and that he'll try to showw off his improved post-up play and some other skills against Turkey, Spain and some other Euro powerhouses.

All the material from his 6-day camp with Hakkem will be available on Gortat TV soon.
