There aren’t many players in the NBA that have left an ever-standing mark on the league.
Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon is among those players who changed the game with his insane footwork.
The Dream also led the Rockets to back-to-back NBA titles in 1994 and 1995.
However, Olajuwon found himself in the headlines due to Gilbert Arenas calling him out for charging $50,000 for his training camps.
Former Rockets star and NBA Hall of Famer Ralph Sampson clapped back at Arenas for his comments about Olajuwon, via SiriusXM NBA Radio on Twitter.
“Go back and do your homework before you open your mouth,” Sampson said.

Sampson claimed that Arenas was unaware of what he was talking about.
As per the Rockets legend, Arenas needs to think before opening his mouth on social media.
Arenas has made a name for himself since retiring from the NBA as one of the top names in the podcasting world.
He is known for his blunt takes regarding the league, but this time around, Arenas may have overplayed his hand.
Hakeem is one of the most respected former players and evidently has a good reputation in the NBA community.
Olajuwon is yet to make a comment about Arenas’ public callout.
Fans shouldn’t expect a response as Olajuwon is rarely seen making an appearance outside of training camps.
As for Arenas, he may be forced to issue an apology to Hakeem as he has put a target on his back by calling out the former Rockets star.
Will Arenas apologize?
Fans will find out over the next few days.NEXT: Shaedon Sharpe Explains How Different Sports Helped Him In Basketball
