Kevin Garnett Says Joel Embiid Reminds Him of Hakeem Olajuwon

Hakeem Olajuwon’s legacy is set in stone. The Hall of Famer’s accolades are seemingly endless. Two titles, an MVP, two DPOYs, and the list goes on and on. He grew up in Nigeria as a soccer player and came over to America in his late-teens, eventually becoming one of the best basketball players ever.

Like Olajuwon, Joel Embiid started playing basketball as a teenager, moving from Cameroon to Florida.

And if there’s anyone to be making big man comparisons, it’s Kevin Garnett. On his #Area21 show, the soon-to-be Hall of Famer says that The Process’ versatility reminds him of a young Olajuwon. Check out KG discuss his opinion with Nate Robinson in the video below.
