In recent years, a pilgrimage to Houston to work with Hakeem Olajuwon has become the Mecca of NBA players wanting to work on their post game. Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwight Howard and host of others have made the trek.
In an effort to improve on the offensive end of the court, Noah revealed on Wednesday during a visit to a Chicago north suburban high school that he plans to train with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar this summer.
Kareem was a special assistant coach to the Lakers, brought in primarily to work with Andrew Bynum. Which he did until Bynum decided he didn’t have anything else to learn from the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and six time MVP. Not to mention a guy with six rings, too. What a very Bynum decision.
Noah has a more unconventional post game than Bynum, but Kareem has publicly praised Noah’s style of play.
