Robert Horry - Hakeem Olajuwon Greatest Center

Moses Malone taught him how to play center. Guy V was smart to recruit him.

Malone came along at the perfect time…

Moses Malone was recruited out of high school in Petersburg, VA, by UH Assistant Basketball Coach Harvey Pate. Malone was the #1 recruit that year and ended up signing with Maryland, but I believe he was the first high school player to go directly to the pros, to the Utah Stars of the ABA.

Malone played for Houston soon enough, a couple of years later with the Houston Rockets. About 10 years later, Malone was tutoring Olajuwon on being a big man in the NBA.

Life is funny sometimes.
