USA Today


Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid has been compared to NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon plenty of times in the past.

To begin the 2021 playoffs, Embiid is taking on one of Olajuwon’s former teammates in the form of Washington Wizards coach Scott Brooks. Brooks played for the Rockets for 2.5 seasons, and he was able to see Olajuwon better than a lot of people. “Even if you don’t make a mistake, he was making shots over our guys. He was making shots over a double team last night, but like I said, I haven’t seen anybody since Olajuwon be able to dominate a game on both ends of the floor like he does.”

Sixers coach Doc Rivers played with Patrick Ewing, and he battled Olajuwon.
