Hakeem Olajuwon was there again on Day 2 of Houston Rockets training camp, and though we again did not get to see any scrimmage, we did see Olajuwon work on post moves with young Rocket Donatas Motiejunas.
D-Mo called it a “pleasure” and an “honor” that Hakeem invited him to workout with him.
“You see, he moves faster than me on the court,” said Motiejunas. “I don’t know how old is he. He didn’t tell me how old is he. I was impressed. I was thinking he’s like a center, a big guy, but he moves like a forward. There are many things I can take from his game and apply to mine.”
Here is some video of the workout as well as interviews with both Motiejunas and Olajuwon.
