In a recent collaboration between two basketball titans, NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon worked with Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Nigerian-born duo, bonded by their heritage, shared an experience on the court.
Olajuwon, known for his impeccable footwork and post moves during his illustrious career, couldn’t help but express his admiration for Antetokounmpo’s relentless pursuit of greatness.
“It’s amazing when you see a guy like Giannis, and all of his accomplishments, still looking to improve and take his game to another level. That just says a lot about him, his work ethic, and his determination to be the very best he can be,” he said, per Mark Berman.
The shared Nigerian background between the two basketball icons created a special connection that extended beyond the hardwood.
Antetokounmpo, a student of the game, conveyed his profound respect and gratitude to Olajuwon through a heartfelt message on social media.
