Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon is a former professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association. Olajuwon played center for the Houston Rockets, whom he led to back-to-back championships in 1994 and 1995, and the Toronto Raptors. In the 1993-94 season, Olajuwon became the only player in NBA history to win the NBA’s Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, and Finals MVP awards in the same season. In 1996, Olajuwon assisted in the gold medal-winning performance of the United States national team and was selected as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History.
Listed at 7 ft 0 in, Olajuwon is generally considered one of the five greatest centers to ever play the game, along with Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Shaquille O’Neal. He was reverentially nicknamed “Hakeem the Dream” for his grace on and off the court.
