Hakeem Olajuwon Likes Jeremy Lin-Dwight Howard Duo

by September 18, 2013

Hakeem Olajuwon has been working as a development coach with the Rockets all summer, and he likes what he’s seen. Speaking with Houston’s FOX 26, Olajuwon had this to say about the Lin-D12 combination:

“Just the little offense I saw, that combination is very deadly and you can see that both of them are very excited seeing that ‘wow, we bring the right ingredients together.’ When you see players that are dedicated to succeed it gives you that window to see what kind of season that we’re looking for… Dwight can clearly dominate this league comfortably. He has everything that he needs and he has desire and work ethic to do it.”

Speaking about Lin specificically, The Dream said he’s been impressed so far:

“In Aspen I worked with Jeremy Lin a little bit in the post and I was very impressed, he has a nice post move. I said, ‘how come you are not using that in a game?’ He said, ‘I played like that in college.’” Olajuwon noted to the guard that “If you catch those little guys in the game that guard you, your advantage should be in the post.”
