didn't Hakeem use to fast (not eat) for a month during the season due to his Muslim religion??

i think fasting strengthens your will power and focuses your mind, Yao should try that!!

alot of religions use fasting as a way to achieve mind over body.

im pretty sure that Walton was implying current centers. Yea, i have tried fasting, only for a day, and it sucks even when ur not playing anything. Hakeem did not fast for a MONTH, it was a day. But, he could not even drink anything, and he still played in games, so he must have gotten really weak and tired and dehydrated

no ur wrong. Hakeem, like other devout Moslems, fast the entire monthe of February. he abstain from food and drink until sun down; on game days that means nothing before game time.

Hakeem was / is a very focused and dispcipline man; thus, he was able to fast and play NBA bb

Yes, devout Moslems fast for the entire month of Ramadan as it is called.
However, this usually took a toll on Hakeem as he usually had to wake up early before sunrise to have a meal, then did not eat or drink again until after sundown.
He lacked energy during those weekend afternoon games, and even in the night games Rudy usually played him less minutes than normal because his energy levels were usually down during Ramadan.
Nevertheless, Hakeem was a very special player both physically and mentally.
