Introduction:He the greats complete center to ever play the game in the NBA.
He lead the NBA in rebounds 2 years in row.He's 13 in the all time best rebounder list.He out played ever center that play in the league along with him.
Lead the NBA in block shots three times in his basketball career.He is the raining shot block leader with 3,830.In other words he's the best when it come to blocking shots.
There is no other center to ever play the game has the offense moves Hakeem Olajuwon had.His foot work was like watching a person break dance.Breaking centers ankles when he played.That's how he got the name dream shake.Scored at will could not be stopped in the finals.
Lead all centers in steals ever single year he played.All the steal leader at the center position. He's 8 on all time steal list with 2,162
Helped the Houston Rockets win back to back titles in 94-95.He as won MVP in those two title games.I hated the first title win because I am a Knicks fan.
If you want to see greatness played at the center position watch Hakeem Olajuwon.
You probably right I start watching basketball in year 1985.I always hear Wilt Chamberlain or Kareem Abdul Jabbar being the best.But they just don't have the moves Hakeem has.Thanks for the comment IzzyDuncan
Great sports people are super to watch and think about. I don't know the person, but your list is impressive.
I don't know if I'd say "EVER" to play the game, but he's amazing!
