Hakeem Olajuwon made the Basketball Hall of Fame. He won an NBA MVP and two championships. He earned a spot on 12 All-NBA and 12 All-Star teams. He even recorded a quadruple-double.

He also ate a lot of chicken nuggets.

Houston Chronicle online sports editor Greg Rajan:

That’s a lot of chicken nuggets, but this was over five hours, and Olajuwon had a 7-foot frame to fill out.

We rate this claim: plausible.
