Marcin Gortat channels Olajuwon

Marcin Gortat’s post move against Tim Duncan has gotten a lot of attention on the world wide web this week.

Some people  Kyle from Truth About It, who preserved this moment for posterity, thought maybe Gortat was trying to do Hakeem Olajuwon’s Dream Shake. So I went back and looked at the legend, attempting his signature move against another San Antonio center.

Indeed, these look pretty similar.
