Rockets Legend Hakeem Olajuwon Autograph Appearance (Photo)

Justin Brown provides a photo of NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon signing autographs. This took place in March, at a Fanatics Authentic show, held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, in Rosemont, Illinois.

Olajuwon, who was drafted by the Rockets with the first pick in the 1984 draft, was one of the best centers in NBA history. The Nigeria native played from 1984-2002, with all but one of those seasons occurring in Houston (finished career with Toronto). Olajuwon made 12 All-Star games and was named the 1994 NBA MVP. Most importantly, he led the Rockets franchise to three NBA Finals appearances, amid winning back-to-back titles in 1994 and 1995.

The University of Houston alum is easily one of the most popular players in both Rockets history and Houston sports history.
