    Heads up to anybody that would love to finally have an Akeem, Hakeem, or high school sweetheart Olajuwon bobblehead by Forever Collectibles. These things come out in October but with them being very low in run figured I would pass the information on. Finally a championship jersey Hakeem bobblehead. This makes up for the terrible Lin bobble they gave out this year. Here are the mock ups for them.

    Yeah I figured something good should help people feel better about the Rockets situation. If we can't get a Harden or Dwight holding a trophy bobblehead, might as well get a Hakeem. Wished they would have put out a two set with him and Clyde though. They are making a Clyde too but it's the jacket one with the Portland Trailblazers team and my hate for Portland right now is not letting me buy it.

    They released two of the three bobbleheads actual design. Pretty cool with his bowtie.

    It's not the best but when the only other one they have ever made was this one, I tend to be fine with it.

    Also you think Hakeem is bad. Try looking at Mchale. He looks crazy as hell. If he looked like that in real life I think he would be a better coach. Cause if I'm a player, I'm playing my hardest for this coach.....cause I don't want to end up disemboweled floating in the river.

    Are these like unapproved ones or something. Where they can't get the likeness too close so they won't get sued lol.

    I own a Frankenstein bobble head, so in essence I already own a McHale Bobble head.

    Isn't this kind of sacrilegious? The reason Hakeem's statue outside Toyota Center is just a plaque of his jersey (rather than like Chicago's Jordan statue) is because it is against his Islamic faith. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3246789

    Some BS... not even close to Hakeem. It's like they had extra heads off some other guy and glued them on. Cheap China made crap. Collectable because they're the wrong head maybe.

    Good idea, but horrible outcome. Olajuwon should be offended.

    Well his faith prohibits his "likeness" from being used. These Bobbles look nothing like him. So....
