Hakeem Olajuwon Net Worth $200 Million

Hakeem Abdul "The Dream" Olajuwon is a retired Nigerian-American professional basketball player born on January 21, 1963 in Lagos, Nigeria. He played the center position in the NBA for the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors from 1984 to 2002. He led the Rockets to continuous championships between 1994 and 1995 and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. 

He is still considered one of the greatest centers to play in the game. He traveled to the US from his home country (Nigeria) to play basketball for the University of Houston. Olajuwon was later selected by the Rockets in 1984, in an NBA draft that included John Stockton, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. He was nicknamed "Akeem The Dream" in Houston. Also, he and Ralph Sampson were dubbed as part of the duo, the "Twin Towers” because the two guided the Rockets to the  NBA Finals in 1986 (but they lost six games to the Boston Celtics). The duo (“Twin Towers”) came to an end after Sampson was traded to the Warriors in 1988 and Olajuwon became the leader of the team. 

He is now retired and has a net worth of $200 million. This basketball player earned his net worth from playing professional basketball for two NBA teams (Raptops and Rockets)  for 18 years and from his own entrepreneurial efforts.
