Friday Night Video: Why every big wants to work with Hakeem Olajuwon


That is five minutes of why Amare Stoudemire, JaVale McGee and… well, it would be easier to list the big men who have not gone to work with Hakeem Olajuwon the past couple years.

That is five minutes of why the Knicks are bringing him into training camp.

He had amazing footwork, he had a variety of moves and counters for everything. And if you are seven feet and can hit a fade away nothing can stop you (ask Dirk Nowitzki).

Marvel at one of the great big men ever to play the game. Because he had skills. And because he worked at it, this wasn’t all natural gifts.
