Every star has a finishing move. Hakeem Olajuwon had the “Dream Shake.” Penny Hardway had the fadeaway. What’s your go-to? If the game is on the line, I want to receive the ball at the free-throw line. It’s the most comfortable (spot) for me, and it’s hard to double. So I would say there, but maybe a step-back from there. So that would be my “finishing move,” so to say.

MVP winner will get the Michael Jordan trophy

Shams Charania: New names and trophies for NBA’s major individual awards: – MVP: The Michael Jordan Trophy – DPOY: Hakeem Olajuwon Trophy – ROY: Wilt Chamberlain Trophy – Sixth Man of Year: John Havlicek Trophy – Most Improved: George Mikan Trophy – New Clutch Player of Year: Jerry West Trophy
Now, Hayes’ jersey will hang in the rafters forever, joining former Rockets players Clyde Drexler, Moses Malone, Calvin Murphy, Hakeem Olajuwon, Rudy Tomjanovich and Yao Ming. “Receiving this tonight is probably one of the greatest honors,” Hayes said. “I have received many honors in the game of basketball. But this one is really super great because of the fact that it is in Houston where everything began for me at the University of Houston, and then going to San Diego and then becoming a part of the Houston Rockets again. It is just really a great honor and a great opportunity for me to be able to have this night now.”
