Biography

American basketball player, a one-time basketball guard for the Sacramento Kings organization. Abdul-Rauf retired from basketball in 1998 after a dismal season in which he played only 31 games after missing 31 contests because of injury, 4 because of flu, and 16 due to coach's decisions. Prior to joining the NBA, he attended Louisiana State University, where he set many records and exhibited magnificent play.

Abdul-Rauf officially embraced the Islamic faith on 8/09/1991. Two years later, he changed his name from Chris Jackson to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, his current nomer; the Islamic name means "elegant and praiseworthy, most merciful, most kind." In March 1996, Abdul-Rauf was suspended from basketball after he refused to stand during the playing of the National Anthem. He claimed that his religious and political beliefs prevented from standing and was quoted as saying "nothing should come between me and Allah."
