He's an overrated mentor. He's still good, but he's not as good as some people imply. Patrick Ewing was on the Rockets staff a while ago and he taught Yao stuff. But really not that much. Dwight's improvement came in recent years because he plays in a system where he will get the ball more.
In my opinion, Mutombo has probably helped out Yao more over the years than Patrick Ewing did.
