"Hakeem the Dream" was more than just a powerful center--he was agility and grace embodied. He ruled the inside, and had a stunning block-per-game average of 3.3. His "Dream Shake" mocked the defenders who tried to stop him from scoring, and his skill has led superstars like LeBron James, Dwight Howard, and Kobe Bryant to study under him to learn how to master the inside like him.


  • 2 NBA Championship titles
  • One MVP Award
  • Two NBA Finals MVP Awards

The Dream led his marginally-talented team to win two NBA championships, and is the only player to ever win Finals MVP, Regular Season MVP, and Defensive Player of the year in the same season!
