Back when Hakeem was known simply as Akeem, "the Dream" put up a fantasy performance that you wouldn't mind having on your roster (long before the days of Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, when fantasy leagues were run by dedicated managers with pen and paper).
It was the crucial sixth game of the 1987 Western Conference Semi-Finals and whilst the Houston Rockets were eliminated in double-overtime by the Seattle Supersonics, Olajuwon certainly put up a tasty stat line:
49 points on 19/33 from the field and 11/13 at the free throw line, to go along with 25 rebounds. Not enough for you? He also threw in 6 blocks to keep his fantasy owners happy.
Take a look at footage from that epic game and ask yourself where you would draft Akeem if he was in the league these days?
