[post_page_title]Hakeem Olajuwon [/post_page_title]
The all-time leader in blocks, Olajuwon provided a huge defensive presence for the Houston Rockets. His scrappy style of play provided an intimidation factor for opposing players who thought about entering the paint. Olajuwon was a driving force in the Rockets two consecutive championships (1994 and 1995), during which he was given the honor of being named NBA Finals MVP both times. He also has the eight most steals in history with 2,162 (most all-time by center), and he is 13th on the all-time rebounding list. Hakeem is the only player in NBA history to tally 200 blocks (282) and 200 steals (213) in the same season (1988-89).
