Phi Slama Jama...

Olajuwon emigrated from Nigeria to play basketball at the University of Houston under Cougars where he and his teammates (including Clyde Drexler) formed what was dubbed "Phi Slama Jama", the first slam-dunking "fraternity", so named because of its well-known above the rim prowess and tendency to frequently slam dunk the basketball. The duo would later team up again in the 1994-95 season when Drexler was aquired in a mid-season trade with the Portland Trail Blazers which helped the Rockets repeat as champions in 1995. Above is a vintage caricature tee I have in stock from that championship year.
