Basketball Picture of Hakeem

Hakeem Olajuwon changed the game of basketball.

The grace of a guard in the body of a center. Nobody had Olajuwon's footwork, and the "Dream Shake" is a move that nobody will be able to perfectly copy.

As a younger player, he battled Kareem, and as an older player, he battled Shaq. He was able to more than hold his own against both.

He was largely responsible for a couple of NBA championships. He led the league in blocked shots. Add in his devotion to his religion, and the determination that added to his game and the result is something special.

All in all a class act both on and off the basketball court.

Hakeem The Dream Was Unbelievable
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

Great pick Rob. Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon was an amazing basketball player, and so much fun to watch.

His footwork, ball fakes, head and shoulder fakes, and post moves were the best I've ever seen. And you're exactly right; he was a guard playing in the body of a center.

On top of all that, he was an amazing individual. A great ambassador of the NBA.
