Living the Dream
My Life and BasketballBook - 1996
Born in Nigeria, Olajuwon didn't step onto a basketball court until the age of 17. Within a year he was a Nigerian international. Here he recounts his journey to America and university in Houston, his success in the NBA since turning professional in 1984, and his return to the Muslim faith. In a sport known for producing arrogant professional athletes, Olajuwon is regarded as a rare phenomenon - a sporting gentleman. Aware of his position as a role model, he wants to pass on his story of success as an inspiration to others.
