Hakeem ‘The Dream’ Olajuwon , a basketball Hall of Famer who runs a thriving summer camp in Nechells , says Trump is ‘blaming problems in the US on Muslim people’. Olajuwon, a devout Muslim who prays at different mosques around the city, told HuffPost : “As far as I can tell Trump is not very politically correct as you say in this country. “He’s turning the Muslim community in the USA into victims and he’s blaming the country’s problems on this one small community. “The extremists who say they are acting for Islam are not really Muslims and Trump must know that but he labels all Muslims as bad.
BL: Do you have any relationship with Joel Embiid? How well do you know him? DM: I’ve known him since he was a little kid, since he came to Basketball Without Borders for the first time. And I saw him when he went to college, watched him when he came to the NBA. I told so many people with the 76ers, the way this kid is progressing, the way he’s playing, despite his injury, when he would get a chance to play a full season he will show the world [that] he has a chance to become much better than me or somebody else playing in the NBA from the continent. I think his approach to the game—he wants to dominate. I’ll kill you on the block, I’m gonna embarrass you, and that’s something I love about him. He’s a better offensive player than I was because I think when you look at some of his moves, I didn’t have that. It’s kind of a mix of Hakeem Olajuwon and another center. He has all of that, so that’s what makes him the great basketball player that he is.
Storyline: Africa Game
BL: When did you first realize that you could be an ambassador for basketball in Africa? DM: I think on my draft day. Being the third NBA player from Africa, I have a responsibility to make sure that all the kids on the continent would play the game, that they did play, and also would get a chance to make it to the NBA because my challenge in life was to make sure that I was not the last Dikembe Mutombo playing in the NBA or the last Hakeem Olajuwon. And so I was making sure that we keep that door open for the next generation and I think that I did a good job of that.
