Hakeem Olajuwon is 52 years old and has not played against NBA competition since 2002. But he's still fluid, still athletic and still able to score over players half his age.
During the NBA's Africa game over the weekend, Olajuwon briefly popped into action in the second quarter, showing what he's still made of, and why players to this day are willing to pay top dollar and visit him for low-post tutelage.
