Hakeem Olajuwon: LeBron can get even better
"I knew he recorded everything we worked on," Olajuwon said. "I know he’s practiced it. I can see that. But the comfort level, when you get into the competition, you start playing to your strengths, which is more of (an) outside (game). I see him post up. But I still see a lot of opportunities there. He’s not capitalizing as much as he should. He needs more of a refresher course where he can become more comfortable. I see him (improving his post game), but he needs more time."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The best always get better. That’s why they are the best.
After all, Michael Jordan developed an amazing post game; Magic Johnson added his ‘baby hook’ and three-point shot; Kobe Bryant has extended his range over the years.
So, there’s no doubt LeBron James, who will surely win his third MVP award this spring, can get better. According to his tutor Olajuwon, it starts in the post, where the 6-8 man-child has only scratched the surface.
James’ can also take his one-on-one defense, outside range, and conditioning to another level. When he does fans will be watching an all-time great.
