Hakeem Olajwon summer workouts seem to include just about everybody in the NBA during the last few years. Last summer we talked about LeBron James learning from Dream, and this summer Dream's talking about his new pupil, Javale McGee.

Maybe this opinion will get people's attention: Olajuwon says McGee should dominate the NBA.

From an article with My Fox Houston:

Olajuwon, who knows a thing or two about what it takes to be an NBA star, believes the sky is the limit for McGee, who finished second in the NBA last season in blocked shots, averaging 2.16 per game.
"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."

Well played on that sky is the limit pun.

As far as what Olajuwon said about McGee, there is no denying McGee is a tremendous talent. Seven foot-high jumper who can run is certainly an equation for NBA nastiest. Especially when considering McGee's skill level.

He has not got there yet, but maybe he will after working on his Dream Shake. The man who patented that move continued:

"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."
Olajuwon believes what he has to offer fits McGee's game.
"The moves that we work on are not for a stiff big guy," Olajuwon said. "With him he's agile. The move flows. So I'm excited to see what he's going to do this year."

After inking the former Wizards big man to a four-year, $44 million dollar contract this off-season, the Nuggets are pretty excited to see what McGee can do this year as well.

If he comes back with any aspect of Olajuwon's overall repetoire, he will dominate the NBA. If he goes back to just running and dunking though, he will continue to simply be Javale McGee.
