Hakeem Olajuwon Thinks JaVale McGee Should Dominate The NBA

Amare Stoudemire isn’t the only one getting tips from Hakeem Olajuwon this offseason.

JaVale McGee has been working out with “The Dream” this summer and Olajuwon was really impressed by what he saw.

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 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.”

Maybe McGee’s mom was on to something when she said her son is “the future of the NBA”………NAW!

McGee is a pretty good player. He averaged 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds while with the Wizards and Nuggets. He could be more than just a 7-footer in the league if he matures and put all his focus into the game. He can’t dominate the league if he continues to make dumb mistakes on the court.

The Nuggets signed McGee to a four year, $44 million contract last month so I’m pretty sure the Nuggets are hoping he can dominate the league as well.

    The DREAM as it RIGHT Though!!! I’ll TRUST His Assessment OVER Anybody Else’s regarding NBA Potential-n-Promise (YUP…)

    Making Someone’s PAST Their Future-n-Destiny is Baseless and Borderline IGNORANT… UNTIL That Individual shows that he/she is INCAPABLE of Progressing THEIR GROWTH to the LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE worthy of Respect THEN I’m willing to give THEM The Benefit Of Doubt (But That’s JUST ME Though…)
