Hakeem Olajunwon Tops International NBA Players Of All Time by gbokukueba(m): 1:26pm On Aug 04, 2013
Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon (Nigeria)



Nigerian-born Hakeem Olajuwon emigrated to the U.S. to play for the University of Houston despite not having been heavily recruited. By his second year, however, he was a founding member of “Phi Slama Jama,” the made-up fraternity that recognized his incredible dunking abilities. He was drafted first overall in 1984 (over other legends such as Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley) by the Houston Rockets, and played with them for 17 seasons. He remains the franchise’s leader in scoring, rebounding, steals and blocked shots, and brought Houston its only major sports championships in 1994 and 1995. He also was the 1994 MVP, 1993 and 1994 Defensive Player of the Year, two-time Finals MVP, and 12-time All-Star. Although he’s been retired for over a decade, Olajuwon remains the NBA’s all-time leading shot blocker, beating out the wagging Mutombo for the top spot. -
