Hakeem Believes Durant, Griffin Would Most Benefit From Working With Him On Post Game
Hakeem Olajuwon believes Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant are the two players that haven't trained with him that would most greatly benefit from improving their post games.
“(He’s) very skilled, but doesn’t take advantage of his height in the post,” Olajuwon said. “He’s much taller than most of the guys who guard him. He’s got all the outside game, but now he needs to take them in the post. In other words, there’s something for everybody.”
Durant scored 1.04 points per post-up last season, which ranked seventh in the NBA. But only 10.4 percent of his offensive moves were in the post.
