He dunked with such ease, they called him The Dream. Hakeem Olajuwon was one of the greatest centers of all time, and, to this day, remains the NBA’s all-time shot-block leader. Despite not learning the hoops trade until he was seventeen, it didn’t take long for Olajuwon to not just learn the ropes, but soar above them altogether. He would eventually win back-to-back NBA Championships with the Houston Rockets, and perfect a series of spins, fakes and fancy footwork—called the ‘Dream Shake’—that became an integral part of his legacy. Pay homage.
