You gotta be f**kin s**ttin me. Hakeem had way better post moves then Ewing and was MUCH better on defense. Olajuwon is synonymous with footwork and post moves.
Yao didn't show huge improvements working with Ewing. His development was criticized just like Howard's but when he worked out with Hakeem during the summer he talked about what a good mind for the game he had.
Olajuwon was a better player and is a better coach, period. He could have any job he wanted yet Ewing been wanting to go back to NY but they won't hire his a.ss. I still think Dwight should play for Team USA though.
Cosign, this is the first time Ive ever seen anyone on Boxden say that Ewing was on Hakeem's level. Im not hating on Patrick, Im just saying, how could you say Ewing had the same arsenal or post moves as Hakeem. Not even a Knicks fan would say Ewing was as good as Hakeem.
