Houston (CBS Houston) – Former Rockets center and Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, who was hired immediately after the Rockets acquired Dwight Howard, is underway mentoring and working out with the newly acquired, free agent center.
This is such a great sign for Houston Rockets’ fans. Jason Friedman of Rockets.com posted on Twitter several pictures of Howard, Olajuwon and Rockets head coach Kevin McHale working out Monday at Toyota Center.
According to Olajuwon’s new blog on “The Post Game“, he begins his last entry with, “Ask any NBA player and he’ll tell you that while stars shine during the season, it’s over the summer when the real work is done.” The Hall of Fame center continued, “Individual workouts are a crucial part of the game. These sessions can help a player cultivate a certain skill and get in the necessary repetition. But just as a pianist cannot better her ensemble skills by practicing alone, it is essential for a basketball player to accept the challenge of playing with and against others.”
