Hakeem Olajuwon Thinks JaVale McGee Should Dominate The NBA 0
“No question, I see him as another star,” Olajuwon said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “That guy should dominate the league.
“He has tremendous talent. I give him all these moves and he can finish and he’s already skilled. So now just show him how to use that skill to (get) to the next level.”
McGee is working with Olajuwon along with New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire. Olajuwon began working with the greats of the game in 2009 when Kobe Bryant decided to enhance his post moves. Then there was Dwight Howard in 2010 and again last season, along with LeBron James.
“McGee is incredible because he’s not just a seven-footer, he’s skilled,” Olajuwon said. “He’s very agile.
“Most of my moves are designed from a shot-blockers perspective. I am a shot blocker. What are the moves most difficult for a shot blocker? I’m coming from inside out. This move is very difficult for a shot blocker to block.”
“The moves that we work on are not for a stiff big guy,” Olajuwon said. “With him he’s agile. The move flows. So I’m excited to see what he’s going to do this year.”
Olajuwon believes what he has to offer fits McGee’s game. Let’s hope so…
