Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was an All America famed basketball superstar, filled record books at Gulfport High and LSU, and then the NBA. Blackballed at the best time of his career. At the age of 26.

He was shooting six 3s a game, which was rare in the 90s. 19.2 points per game, he finally got a nice run. He is considered as a prototype of today’s players Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, and Trae Young.
