Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon
Raised as a Muslim, Olajuwon became more devoted to the faith during this period and corrected the spelling of his name from Hakeem to Hakeem. Despite very nearly being traded during a bitter contract dispute before the 1992–93 season, he remained in Houston where in 1993–94, he became the only player in NBA history to win the NBA MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, and Finals MVP awards in the same season. His Rockets won back-to-back championships against the New York Knicks (avenging his college championship loss to Patrick Ewing), and Shaquille O'Neal's Orlando Magic. In 1996, Olajuwon was a member of the Olympic gold-medal-winning United States national team and was selected as one of the50 Greatest Players in NBA History. He ended his career as the league's all-time leader in blocks, with 3,830.
