Kareem Abdul-Jabbar announced that he would be taking Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert under his wing this offseason, and now the NBA legend has posted some videos of the workouts.

Jabbar also posted a message encouraging Pacers fans that the workouts were going well, and Hibbert would show the results when the season began.

"I've been reading your comments & want the fans following us to practice being patient & thinking positive. Good things are happening in the Pacers Fieldhouse. Big men just need other bigs to learn & practice with in order to sharpen their skills. Roy is a hard worker & I'm really looking forward to seeing him play this season."

Between Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Pacers have as much Hall of Fame help as any team could ever need.
