Some guides say that you have to pick the correct takeovers to make a replica build work, in our experience that isn’t the case so pick whatever ones you’d prefer. It is possible this changes based on console (i.e current gen vs. next gen).

This is all the information you need to unlock the Hakeem Olajuwon build. Upon completion of your build, you will see an easter egg telling you that your player has shades of Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon.

Play Style

To make the most of your time on the court focus on your defensive and inside defending. You’ll be able to score on the inside with ease whenever the ball comes your way, while your shooting is decent enough that you’ll knock shots down at a decent rate.

On Defense, stick to the inside to pull down rebounds and turn away shots with ease.
