Jeremy Lin Flattered by Olajuwon’s Praise
Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin said he was “humbled and flattered” by the glowing comments made about him by Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon in his interview on Tuesday with FOX 26 Sports.
“Just the little offense I saw, that combination is very deadly and you can see that both of them are very excited seeing that ‘wow, we bring the right ingredients together,’ ” Olajuwon said on Tuesday.
After working with Lin last week Olajuwon discovered that Lin “has a nice post move” and is “very, very strong” and should use those advantages during games.
“I’m just very humbled and flattered,” Lin said. “I didn’t think he was going to go and say that.”
