Happy Birthday, The Dream‏

Regarded by many of his peers as the greatest center of all time, Hakeem Olajuwon celebrated his 51st birthday just the other day (January 21). ‘The Dream’ had more moves in the post than John Travolta did on the dance floor and his graceful (yet dominant) game was a large reason why I started playing basketball in the first place. Here is a 6 minute tribute to the great Houston Rocket which is well worth a viewing.

Happy Birthday, The Dream.

Soon to be 10 years playing experience in the NBL. Four of those seasons as Captain of the mighty Melbourne Tigers. During my time at the club I have had the opportunity to meet and captain some incredible people and players. Prior to that I spent two years in the States playing college basketball in Georgia and Florida. I am a self confessed NBA addict (As are you if you frequent our site) which is good, as I’m told admission is the first step. I love writing about the game and giving my often light hearted and obscure take on things! I hope you enjoy! Follow me on twitter: @tommygreer10
