Hakeem Olajuwon is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He was an amazing rim protector, could score at will and is known for having the best foot work in the NBA. This current generation of NBA stars often reach out to Olajuwon to gain more knowledge of the game and to work on their back to the basket moves.
Olajuwon was drafted No. 1 overall by the Houston Rockets back in 1984. During his 18-year career Olajuwon scored 26,946 points, 13,747 rebound and 3,830 blocks and at 52 years old he is still able to school some of the young NBA stars on the court.

Olajuwon showed off “The Dream Shake” as he scored a basket during the NBA Africa Game in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s worth noting that Olajuwon and Dikembe Mutombo both enter the game to standing ovations.
