Default Whiteside working with The Dream

From Today's Sun

Quote:
If the Raptors draft Marshall centre Hassan Whiteside, they might finally get a return on investment from an ill-fated signing of the past.

Hakeem Olajuwon, who took the Raptors’ money but was out of shape and just a shadow of his former self in Toronto, has been working with the promising big man who showed his stuff for the Raptors Tuesday.

Whiteside, the NCAA leader with 5.35 blocks per game, said Olajuwon has helped shore up his game at the other end of the floor.

“He’s showing me moves most coaches don’t even know about,” Whiteside said.

Whiteside said he has even learned how to set up the patented Dream Shake after working on his footwork with the all-time great.

Teams have Patrick Ewing working with Dwight Howard, and Kareem working with Bynum. If we draft a raw player like Whiteside, I hope the Raptors hire a big name ex-player to help develop the young player. Alex English was great scorer in the 80's, he had this unstoppable awkward shot, but he was small forward. Big Men should devlop Big Men.

I still want the Ekpe Udoh kid. He is a high motor guy who has been killing in the workouts.

I'm sure Montross or Yogi are available, though Yogi seemed to be about 6'3" by the time he retired.... so maybe he's not big enough.

Huffman still owes us.... just a thought

I meant ex-nba player to develop the young big. I wouldn't mind if we hire Hakeem as big man coach.
