Hakim Hanif Warrick (born July 8, 1982) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA who is currently with the Phoenix Suns. Commonly nicknamed "Helicopter" and "Skinny", the 6'9", 219 lb forward was a major part the Syracuse Orange'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 born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the son of Kenneth Nichols and Queen Warrick and has two brothers, Bill and Tyrell, and a sister, Ciara. Warrick graduated from Syracuse in 2005 with a degree in retail management and consumer studies. Warrick's earliest basketball memory involves monkey bars. "he older guys wouldn't let us on the court and me and my friends used to go over and play basketball on the monkey bars. So that's when I first started dunking and everything."
