Basketball History GIFs: The Dream slaps the Whopper

Back in Hakeem “the Dream” Olajuwon’s rookie season, the Houston Rockets made the playoffs and tangled with the Utah Jazz. Apparently Hakeem had enough of Jazz center Billy “the Whopper” Paultz


Paultz had the last laugh though. The 15-year veteran center helped lead the Jazz in an upset of the Rockets. In victory Jazz teammate Rich Kelly gave away why Hakeem probably smacked Billy silly: “If there’s one thing Billy and I know how to do, it’s lean on people.”
