Houston Rockets 'The Dream' (Scoop)

Houston Rockets 'The Dream' (Scoop)

Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon led the Houston Rockets to back-to-back NBA championships, with his scoring, rebounding and shot-blocking abilities, during the peak of his magnificent 18-year professional career.

Olajuwon was an instant star in the NBA, displaying stunning quickness and agility en route to 20.6 points, 11.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game as a rookie center. Listed at an even 7 feet (though he was closer to 6'10"), he formed one half of Houston's formidable "Twin Towers" duo with 7'4" Ralph Sampson.

During the 1993-94 season, Olajuwon averaged 27.3 points, 11.9 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game, and the Rockets outlasted the New York Knicks in an exhausting seven-game series to win the NBA championship. It truly was a dream year for "The Dream," who became the first player in NBA history to win the Most Valuable Player, Finals MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards in the same season.
