Hakim Hanif Warrick (born July 8, 1982) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA. Commonly nicknamed "Helicopter" and "Hak"[1], the 6'9", 219 lb forward was a major part the Syracuse Orangemen's run to the 2003 National Championship, often being most remembered for blocking a potential game-tying 3-pointer in the title game. Warrick also has a reputation as a prolific dunker while also possessing a wide arsenal of low-post moves.

Warrick was taken with the 19th pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, and after being used sparingly his first season, he had a breakout second year by more than tripling his scoring output and doubling his rebounds.
Warrick was projected as high as a lottery pick in the 2005 NBA Draft or as low as a mid-first round pick.[18] Although Warrick's 38-inch vertical jump and a 7-2 wingspan impressed NBA scouts, they often worried that he was not heavy enough to guard the stronger power forwards in the NBA and did not possess the ballhandling ability associated with small forward.[18] Warrick ended up slipping to the 19th pick, where he was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies.[19]

[edit] 2005-06 season

Warrick appeared in 68 games as a rookie, including two starts, and averaged 4.1 points and 2.1 assists in 10.6 minutes per game playing behind Pau Gasol. On January 31, 2006, Warrick was named to be one of the contestants in the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest during the All-Star Weekend. He came in third place, behind New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson and Philadelphia 76ers forward Andre Iguodala.[20] Warrick would also play in three playoff games in his rookie season as the Grizzlies were swept in four games by the Dallas Mavericks. On April 29, 2006, Warrick scored 11 points, including 7-of-8 free throws in a 94-89 overtime loss.[21] Warrick would also start game four in place of Jake Tsakalidis.[22] Warrick finished the playoff series with averages of 6.7 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.[23]

[edit] 2006-07 season

Over the summer of 2006 Memphis lost their star forward Gasol to a broken foot, leaving Warrick as one of the team's top options as starting power forward. Warrick would play in all 82 games, including 43 starts.[20] On December 9, 2006 against the Milwaukee Bucks, Warrick recorded career highs in points (31) and rebounds (13) and made all nine of his free throw attempts in a 100-94 loss.[24] He later set a new career high of 16 rebounds in the Grizzlies 116-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns.[24]

Warrick finished the season with averages of 12.7 points per game and 5.1 rebounds per game
