Hakeem Olajuwon told a local television station he believes the duo of Jeremy Lin and Dwight Howard to be "very deadly."

Olajuwon spoke with FOX 26 in Houston after working with the two players last week in Colorado.

"Just the little offense I saw, that combination is very deadly," Olajuwon said. "You can see that both of them are very excited, seeing that, 'Wow, we bring the right ingredients together.'"

Of Howard, Olajuwon said, "Dwight can clearly dominate this league comfortably. He has everything he needs and he has desire and work ethic to do it."

Of Lin, Olajuwon said, "To be on the right team, which he is right now, he can really help and play his role and be effective. There's no pressure on him now. It's on Dwight and James. His position is crucial for the team's success and he can play that role very well."
